The Department of Transportation for a large, northern Midwest State has ordered over C$100,000 in AirTest gas measurement transmitters.

The gas measurement transmitters will be installed in vehicle storage and service buildings across the state.

These gas measurement transmitters are used to activate a demand-controlled ventilation system that operates ventilation fans when vehicle exhaust gases are present.

Used in parking garages, demand-controlled ventilation systems have been found to save tremendous amounts of energy compared to the continuous operation of ventilation fans.

Payback can be as quick as a year.

Each county in the state has been authorized to purchase directly from AirTest.

According to AirTest Technologies CEO Ted Konyi,

“This one department has ordered over $100,000 in AirTest Equipment for building upgrades and replacement of competitive equipment that was previously supplied by Honeywell Inc. The customer switched to AirTest because of our product features, competitive pricing and rapid sales response. Feedback from the customer indicates that our high degree of technical customer support, as well as the dependability of the product and ease of servicing, are major reasons it has standardized on AirTest. You can’t manage what you don’t measure. This Department has taken the initiative to reduce energy wasted by only running the fans when needed as measured by our sensors.”

George Graham, President of AirTest added,

“Standardization on AirTest products means that in the future, the Roads Department will purchase replacement gas sensors on an ongoing basis and will use AirTest in any new Department of Transportation buildings where vehicles are stored or operated indoors. We are using our strong reputation with the Roads Department to network into other potential departments in the state and other states that have a similar need for demand-controlled ventilation.”

AirTest Technologies is a rapidly-growing green tech company specializing in Demand Control Ventilation Systems that improve commercial building operating efficiency and generate proven energy savings.

AirTest Technologies Inc. (AAT) is up 3.57 per cent, trading at $0.145 per share at 10:30 am ET.
