Permatron’s PreVent® air filters can help your building achieve certification through the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Rating System by contributing to the following credits:
Energy and Atmosphere (EA) — Credit 1:
Optimize Energy Performance
Intent: To achieve increasing levels of energy performance beyond the prerequisite standard to reduce environmental and economic impacts associated with excessive energy use.
How PreVent filters are consistent with this Intent: PreVent® air filters provide facility managers with an easily maintained, reuseable, highly efficient means of ensuring optimum HVAC equipment efficiency by preventing condenser fins, coils, and air intake grills from become clogged and inefficient, thereby eliminating potential excessive HVAC equipment energy use.
Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) — Credit 5:
Indoor Chemical and Pollutant Source Control
Intent: To minimize building occupant exposure to potentially hazardous particulates and chemical pollutants.
How PreVent filters are consistent with this Intent: PreVent® air filters serve as a first line of defense against any pollutants in outside air being brought into a building. These filters reduce the amount of pollutants that reach indoor HVAC equipment filters, freeing up these filters to capture other particulates and extending their useful life.
Innovation & Design (ID) — Credit 1:
Innovation in Design
Intent: To provide design teams and projects the opportunity to achieve exceptional performance above the requirements set by the LEED Green Building Rating System and/or innovative performance in Green Building categories not specifically addressed by the LEED Green Building Rating System.
How PreVent filters are consistent with this Intent: The benefits of PreVent® air filters transcend the current definitions of LEED credits by providing improved energy efficiency and reduced indoor pollutant levels by means of a technology that is not specifically listed in the requirement of each credit. Benefits related to each credit listed above can be quantified using laboratory testing data and historical energy savings records.
