Inflation, HVAC and Monitoring

Inflation, HVAC and Monitoring

Air domes are pressurized structures, with air blowers constantly blowing air into the dome to keep it inflated. Heaters and AC units can also be used to heat or cool the dome. Although inflation blowers are constantly running, our inflation and HVAC units are highly efficient; the operational cost of air domes is a fraction of the cost of traditional buildings.

Air Inflation Units and HVAC

Although inflation blowers are constantly running, our inflation and HVAC units are highly efficient; the operational cost of air domes is a fraction the cost of traditional buildings. Broadwell also offers an advanced air filtration system that cleans and sanitizes the air in your dome.

Operational Costs

Air operational costs can typically be $0.5-$1 per square foot per year, but it depends on a variety of factors. To calculate a more accurate estimate of operational costs of your dome, we would consider the following:

  • Your local utility cost of electricity, natural gas, or other fuel source used for your mechanical units.
  • Type and amount of lighting used.
  • If temperature controlling your dome, the "occupied" temperature and "unoccupied" temperature, and how many hours a day the dome will be at these temperatures?
  • Your 10 year local temperature history. The higher the difference between desired internal and outside temperature, the more energy required to achieve it.

Monitoring

We developed a mobile app that allows you to monitor the pressure, temperature, air quality, real-time power consumption, historical power consumption, and outside wind speed of your dome from any smart device.
