Ventilation is the biggest piece of your Lab’s energy costs.

Throughout California research and teaching labs consume vast amounts of energy. Much of the energy is related to the ventilation needed to keep the people safe inside the building and outside, where air from the labs is discharged. 

In educational facilities, large science buildings with numerous science classrooms and research labs continue to operate 24 hours a day, 7-days a week to maintain a safe environment. This continues when the labs and classrooms are empty or sparsely occupied.

Even with fume hoods in minimum positions the rooftop exhaust fans must be run at a high rate to maintain the code required discharge velocity. This is the case even though the air is likely free from chemical contaminants.

MAP is the LED bulb of Lab Energy Savings

DMG North has partnered with several leading manufacturers to save energy through better airflow in and out of the lab spaces, energy recovery systems in exhaust and supply air systems, optimized fan systems, and leading room and fume hood controls. DMG engineers can help new and existing building significantly reduce their energy consumption while maintaining the highest level of safety for everyone in and around the building. 
This new system also provides a compliance measure for the California Title 24 Laboratory Code Section 140.9.C.3 which allows fan discharge velocity to vary below the traditional 3,000 ft/min.

Instant ROI with No Downtime.  


Ventilation can account for over 40% of your Lab’s total energy costs.
