Variable Air Volume fume hoods are essential for saving money and energy in research labs and academic facilities. Since the sash can be partially closed to reduce air flow, VAV fume hoods are more energy efficient than many other hood types. PSA Laboratory Furniture installs and certified VAV hoods for labs across the world.
Investing in variable air volume (VAV) fume hoods provides long-term savings. Labs with VAV hoods require less energy to operate. This means more resources can be allocated to research and equipment.
Lab exhaust systems like the variable air volume (VAV) and constant air volume (CAV) fume hood keep odors, smoke, and emissions, at bay while protecting users from the dangerous chemicals in the air. However, CAV systems need more energy to provide constant air velocity. In contrast, VAV systems can be adjusted to reduce air intake.
