Save More Energy with the MoffittVent™

If you add up the energy saved by all of the buildings that have installed the MoffittVent since 1996 it would be the equivalent of over 7,363,884 gallons of gas. With that gas, you could drive for 173,787,673 miles! The same as 13,894 cars use in a single year. That massive amount of ventilation energy savings is all because of the MoffittVent.

With that much gas, you could drive

  • 463,433 miles a day, every day, for 1 year
  • Around the earth 6,979 times
  • From the earth to the sun, and back. (almost twice!)

You’re probably not planning any making those trips very soon, but you could. The point is that something like a natural ventilator, that seems so simple, can have such a huge impact.

At the same time, if all of those buildings used powered exhaust fans, all of that energy would have been consumed.  No one would notice that each fan would have such an impact when put together, but it can. A single fan consumes about 38,000-kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy each year. The average building that will select a MoffittVent can have between 10 and 20 fans per work area, often with dozen work areas throughout the facility. That is hundreds of thousands of kWh for just one complex. Ventilation energy savings are significant.

The Power of the MoffittVent

You know a MoffittVent is working correctly when you don’t even notice it’s there. A natural ventilator is a passive device. It continuously exhausts hot air from a building, whether you do anything or not. It can be hard to see its impact day-to-day. Yes the building doesn’t feel nearly as warm on hot days, and it’s not as humid, but even then it can be almost forgotten.

By taking a minute to see the amount of energy that has been saved by this natural ventilator, the impact becomes much more real. The energy and money formerly used by powering fans can now be directed to other areas of your business. All of that gas could easily go into the tanks of the trucks in your fleet, or to power generators used in the factory.

The MoffittVent Investment

The MoffittVent is an investment that pays for itself. In fact, it usually pays for itself in less than three years. The Moffitt Cost Calculator shows exactly how much you could save by switching to natural ventilation. By choosing a system that provides free ventilation you can save today, tomorrow, and twenty years from now. The Calculator is a great way to evaluate hard-to-visualize ventilation energy savings into very real dollars and cents.

Choosing a Moffitt ventilator is just a small step that helps the environment. It saves energy and electricity by essentially doing nothing. At Moffitt natural ventilation and saving energy is our passion. That is why we have been ventilation’s natural solution since 1961.

Ventilation Energy Savings

The figures in this example include all of the MoffittVent ventilators installed between January 1996 and December 2016. For clarity, only data from the calendar year of 2016 is included in the figures. This includes vents installed 20 years ago because that is well within the operating duration of the MoffittVent. So not only are those facilities seeing these huge savings in one year, they have seen those same savings, year, after year, after year.

Calculation Assumptions

All calculations above assume fans are set to run for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This is typical for many types of industrial facilities. The above figure also does not take into account costs related to repairs of fans or facilities that have been closed or remodeled since the original ventilator(s) were installed.
