What is Destratification?

Thermal stratification is a natural occurrence in buildings, whereby hot air rises to the ceiling or roof while cool air falls to the floor. Destratification, then, involves the recirculation of both existing and newly generated heat to balance a building’s internal temperatures. Once installed, these systems will bring immediate and significant reductions in the operation time and workload of your heating and cooling systems, in turn noticeably improving comfort levels in your building.

Here at Sun Spirit we are proud to work alongside global leader and Carbon Trust recommended, Airius to deliver their thermal destratification solution as the company’s preferred installer in the North East.

The Benefits of Destratification

Airius destratification systems bring wide-ranging benefits for buildings of all sizes and types, slashing heating and cooling costs and CO2 emissions at the same time as helping to ensure the optimum working conditions.

Prominent businesses to have fitted Airius units range from British Airways and Harrods to Siemens and Waitrose, with the many other reported benefits including minimal maintenance requirements, low running costs, compatibility with all types of HVAC systems and the recycling of heat from machinery, lighting and solar gain.

The Installation Process

As one of the UK’s largest solar providers, Sun Spirit can quickly and effectively install Airius destratification fans in both new and existing buildings. Although the process of installing an Airius destratification system is simple, we can nonetheless provide in-depth technical support to ensure there are no hitches with the fitting of your fan.
