IKEA found a great way to save on operating costs by reducing the cost of heating and cooling its space while reducing CO2 emissions.
Pairing MacroAir’s HVLS fan solution with its existing HVAC system enabled IKEA to reduce its energy consumption and improve employee and customer comfort.
During the winter, there was a 6 degree (Fahrenheit) increase in temperature at floor level at both the Zaragoza, Spain and Murcia, Spain IKEA stores.
In the summer, the stores were able to increase the set point of their HVAC system, thereby significantly reducing energy consumption without sacrificing comfort. IKEA doesn’t even use their HVAC on days where the temperature doesn’t exceed 79 degrees F.
As a result, the gain in reduction of energy usage, comfort and payback, IKEA continues to work with MacroAir in other locations, increasing their profitability, social responsibility and environmental compromise. Because IKEA gained comfort, return on investment, and energy reduction with MacroAir HVLS fans, it continues to install the MacroAir solution in its other locations.
