LEED Certification

For commercial building owners, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is becoming a baseline design expectation. A LEED design makes a statement that you are fully committed to reducing the environmental impact of your facility. AirGenuity systems can help you meet the LEED standard by providing both energy efficiency and insight into a building’s IEQ.

Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ)

AirGenuity’s OptiNet system has a direct and primary impact on Indoor Environmental Quality Certification:

  • EQ Credit 1: Outdoor Air Delivery Monitoring
  • EQ Credit 3.2: Construction IAQ Management Plan: Before Occupancy
  • EQ Credit 7.2: Thermal Comfort: Verification

Energy and atmosphere contribution

Aircuity's OptiNet system can help you realize large energy savings and that means energy efficiency points. That’s because the OptiNet system may be deployed independently for DCV or combined with other energy efficiency initiatives you may already have in place.

EA Credit 1: Optimize Energy Performance, one point for improving energy efficiency 12% beyond baseline calculations (8% for renovations), and one additional point for every 2% improvement after that–OptiNet could contribute 1-4 points or more when combined with other energy efficiency measures.

Innovation and Design Process:  Organizations implementing OptiNet have received one point for innovation and design.

Comprehensive IEQ Management System:  Use of the OptiNet system can also assist in earning credits for two additional points:

EA Credit 5: Measurement and Verification (M&V)
IEQ Credit 3.1: Construction IAQ Mgmt Plan: During Construction
