Building-Integrated Heat & Moisture Exchange (BIHME) – Lower Air Conditioning Energy Use in Humid Environments

Architectural Applications
Portland, Oregon, United States

Application Area:HVAC
Development Status:Prototype
Organization Type:Early-stage Startup (Seed)
Executive Summary:BIHME is a membrane-based heat and moisture exchanger reducing building air conditioning use in tropical climates by 15-30%. The exchanger is manufactured in a panelized form and integrated into the building wall to provide combined benefits of reduced cooling demand, lower fan energy, better insulation, with less space required.
