LabSYNC Point E-H1
Problem: Fume hoods draw out warmed or cooled air from your lab 24/7.
Solution: Some hoods are “smart” (a.k.a. variable air volume) and they slow down 60-80% when you close the sash. Even constant volume hoods draw less air when closed, and the sash is safest in its lowest position.
Benefits: You can save anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars per year by keeping the sash closed.
Cost: There is no impact on lab operations other than making it safer. This is the easiest and biggest payback item in any lab.
