In 2016 the MoffittVent  saved enough energy to power 22,900 homes! That is more than the number of houses in Moffitt Corporation's home town of Jacksonville Beach, FL. We like to express it this way because it really shows the impact natural ventilation can have on energy use and the environment.

capture as much CO2 AS 5M Trees with the MoffittVent™

It would take 5,317,777 trees to save as much CO2 as the MoffittVent did in 2016.  This eliminates the 135,078 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) that would have been produced by using powering exhaust fans. Simply by switching to natural ventilation, all of this energy is saved and the CO2 disappears. Natural ventilation, and the MoffittVent, add up to have a sizable impact on the environment.

If you took all of the energy that the MoffittVent  saved buildings in 2016, and used it to power light bulbs, you would be able to power 470,006 incandescent light bulbs, or 1,880,022 CFL light bulbs, non-stop for one year. That's enough bulbs for over 10,000 homes. It's hard to believe how one product could save that much energy.

If you add up the energy saved by all of the buildings that have installed the MoffittVent since 1996 it would be the equivalent of over 7,363,884 gallons of gas. With that gas, you could drive for 173,787,673 miles! The same as 13,894 cars use in a single year. That massive amount of energy is all saved because of the MoffittVent.

What is the Buoyancy Effect?

Understanding Bouyancy driven natural ventilation

Everyday more and more commercial and industrial buildings are seeing the benefits of buoyancy driven natural ventilation. This type of natural ventilation, also known as stack-effect ventilation, relies on the differences in temperature between the inside and outside of the building to promote air-flow. By designing ventilation systems to take advantage of the buoyancy effect the interior can become significantly cooler and more comfortable. Smart placement of exhaust ventilators and intake louvers can have a huge impact on air flow and temperatures within a building.

Natural ventilation provides energy savings and maintenance savings. Switching to a natural system can help your facility hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, with significant cost savings over time. When a dollar value is put to the promise of “savings” it becomes real. One company chose natural ventilation for their project based on the million dollar savings they saw by using the Moffitt Cost Calculator.

Sometimes ESFR Sprinklers Aren't Enough for Fire Protection.

Posted by Ian Lachut

Feb 7, 2017 2:51:00 PM

When moving into a pre-existing facility the emergency fire system may need updationg to fit current requirements. However, knowing the exact requirements for each building, can be a challenge. While most warehouses in the U.S. require ESFR (Early Suppression, Fast Response) sprinkler systems many large facilities may instead require automatic heat and smoke vents. Choosing the right one is important for code requirements and for safety. Using both is not always the right answer, as the two systems are not always compatible. Before making any decisions it is important to know the advantages and drawbacks of fast response sprinklers and smoke vents like the Moffitt Firex.

Finding the Most Effective Industrial Ventilation System

Posted by Ian Lachut

Jan 17, 2017 2:30:00 PM

The industrial ventilation design process is much more complicated than simply installing a bunch of fans. Numerous factors come into play when designing a ventilation system. The height of the roof, temperature of the process heat, average wind speed, and building materials can all have an effect on the building's ventilation. Fortunately The Moffitt team knows the ins-and-outs of ventilation systems and can help anyone find the optimal industrial ventilator for their facility.

Emergency Heat and Smoke Control

Emergency heat and smoke vents, like the Moffitt Firex have been proven to save lives. When there is a fire emergency smoke vents open automatically without electricity or human action. By allowing the smoke from the fire to evacuate, the firefighters access and response time is improved and the dangers of smoke inhalation are decreased. The Moffitt Firex has been manufactured for over 60 years and has helped protect hundreds of buildings and thousands of lives.
