Cost savings at every phase of the building life

Reduced construction costs

Perhaps the most compelling advantage of the FlexSys System is that it offers all the benefits of improved flexibility and comfort at a cost that is competitive with traditional designs. If you’re already planning on a raised floor for data, power and telecommunications, the addition of UFAD using the FlexSys System can cost less than a traditional HVAC system, because it:

  • Eliminates overhead ductwork

  • May reduce building height, typically 6" per floor

  • Simplifies modifications to the air system, prior to and after occupant move-in, which reduces labor costs and speeds occupancy

  • Allows more energy-saving daylighting opportunities through decreased plenum height and the elimination of overhead ductwork.

Reduced life-cycle costs

The FlexSys System really pays off when you consider life-cycle costs, because it:

  • Reduces costs — and disruptions — caused by “churn”

  • Provides greater energy efficiency than an overhead Variable Air Volume (VAV) system — fan energy is only .05" static pressure, instead of the static pressure typically needed by overhead VAV systems — which translates into 30% fan-energy operating savings annually

  • Affords more hours of economizer cycling by delivering 60˚–63˚F air, versus a conventional 55˚F supply air temperature

  • May qualify for accelerated tax- depreciation based on the FlexSys System plug-and-play modular design. Consult your tax advisor for more information.
