Canada's Algoma University Wins Camfil 5-Star Energy Award Using high-efficiency air filters across campus, Algoma boosts sustainability, savings, and the health of students and faculty
NEW YORK, Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Organizations around the world -- from businesses to educational institutions -- are looking to sustainability to save resources, lower costs, and help protect the environment. But for many, sustainability is still a relatively new initiative. So Camfil -- the world's leading provider of clean air solutions and high efficiency HVAC air filters-- has made it a priority to spread the word about best practices, innovative air filtration products, and organizations that have led the charge in boosting energy efficiency.
In August, Camfil recognized one of those leaders by awarding Algoma University the company's 5-Star Energy award. Algoma -- a post-secondary institution located in Ontario, Canada -- was honored for its continued commitment to saving energy while providing quality indoor air throughout its facility.
In the process, Algoma demonstrated the 'triple win' of sustainability: lowering energy use, lowering costs, and providing optimal performance. It's a result made possible through the use of cutting-edge, high-efficiency building products such as Camfil air filters. Leveraging the industry-leading advances developed at Camfil's half dozen global research centers, these filters use less energy, last longer, and perform better than traditional air filters. As a result, many customers that have switched to Camfil clean air solutions are already reducing their HVAC energy costs by 20 percent, their installation costs by 50 percent, and their disposal costs by 70 percent -- all while maintaining optimal indoor air quality.
Bringing sustainability to air handling is particularly important, as HVAC systems account for up to 40 percent of all energy use. By selecting high-efficiency air filters with a 5-Star Energy Cost Index (ECI) rating, Algoma -- which was founded in 1967 and now has a population of approximately 1,300 students -- is in the top 20 percent of customers worldwide that have chosen to make a difference in energy use. It has been able to conserve natural resources while providing a healthy, comfortable indoor environment. That's an achievement that not only warrants notice -- but emulation.
The world leader in air filtration systems, Camfil provides clean air solutions for hospitals, hotels, office buildings, educational institutions, and pharmaceutical and biotech companies. We provide the tools to achieve sustainability, maintain high air quality, and reduce airborne infections -- all while lowering total cost of ownership. Camfil customers go green without ever sacrificing performance.
