Why We Do What We Do

To Create Healthy Indoor Environments

People are getting sick while spending their times indoors due to the recirculation of air without proper filtration and humidity control. To improve indoor environments and prevent the transmission of airborne contaminants, HVAC systems should provide fresh outdoor air, eliminate recirculation, use high MERV filtration, and fixed-plate ERV technology to control humidity and lower cross-contamination between airstreams.

To Move Toward Building Electrification

To reduce greenhouse gases, many North American cities are moving toward net-zero energy over the next decade, which will drive demand for all-electric HVAC systems and low energy technologies. Oxygen8 is here to meet that demand with our all-electric heating and cooling solutions.

For Better Building Design

As building design becomes more insulated and air-tight, the need for energy efficient cooling becomes ever more important. Cooling with fixed-plate energy recovery and VRV integration helps to reduce energy consumption while meeting ventilation requirements.
