Cimetrics identified fume hoods that have face velocities greater than the high limit threshold of 100fpm, which result in excess energy use, as well as face velocities below the low limit threshold of 80 fpm, which have safety implications. 

Face Velocity
Cimetrics also identified airflow setback opportunities to reduce energy use during unoccupied periods.

Face Velocity

Solution
Cimetrics worked with facilities staff to optimize fume hood face velocity and airflow to ensure compliance with safety requirements while minimizing the economic impact.

Energy savings for solution: $2,641
