Occupancy comfort & energy savings, at the same time
Energy use is the single largest operating expense in commercial office buildings, representing approximately one-third of typical operating budgets. Nearly 40% of energy use in buildings is for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. BioPCM®, the organic phase change material, can significantly help reduce energy use and building operating expense.
In hotter climates or for summer, BioPCM® is tuned to actively absorb heat radiated from the environment, delaying the need for cooling. For cooler temperatures or in winter, the BioPCM® can be tuned to absorb and release stored heat. Thus, the thermal comfort in the building and building resiliency can be improved, all with the certified organic and sustainable BioPCM® solution.
