Halton, the leading authority in foodservice ventilation technologies and innovations, offers products that exceed the requirements of current energy standards for commercial and institutional kitchens. Halton’s approach to ventilation designs is green conscious and focuses on total optimization of the energy consumption of the HVAC system. It improves well being of occupants and maximizes their productivity by improving indoor environmental quality.
When Halton’s products are integrated with the HVAC system, they offer synergies for achieving maximum energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality for the building. When pursuing approvals in accordance to ASHRAE standard 90.1 or going beyond to LEED certification, the synergies of Halton products translate to meeting or exceeding the requirements, and contribute to credits and points under the LEED rating system.
Under LEED certification, the credit compliance and points fall under two of the six categories of the LEED rating system, namely: Energy and Atmosphere (EA) and Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ). The technologies described herein summarize the benefits of employing Halton’s food service solutions when pursuing LEED certification for building. Also many other Halton solutions for commercial and public buildings contribute to your projects LEED certification.
M.A.R.V.E.L. Demand Control Ventilation
M.A.R.V.E.L. can be programmed to communicate with sensors and devices, monitor and log data to help achieve EAc1 “Optimize Energy Performance”, EQc1 “Outdoor Air Delivery Monitoring” and EAc5 “Measurement and Verification”. >> Read More
HRU – Heat Recovery Unit
Halton’s Heat Recovery Unit (HRU) is a packaged exhaust fan and make-up air unit with heat reclaim. The HRU recovers heat from exhaust air to preheat incoming make-up air, eliminating the need for a dedicated make-up air unit. >> Read More
What is L.E.E.D.
LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.
Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
LEED is flexible enough to apply to all building types – commercial as well as residential. It works throughout the building lifecycle – design and construction, operations and maintenance, tenant fitout, and significant retrofit. And LEED for Neighborhood Development extends the benefits of LEED beyond the building footprint into the neighborhood it serves.
