Delta prioritises energy efficiency in improving indoor air quality


Abhishek Sarmah, Business Head at Delta Electronics India, advocates integrating air quality products in homes. Emphasising their importance, the company envisions these solutions as essential household components. Delta aims to make these products a standard in home management through education and awareness, ensuring healthier indoor environments for all.

Could you discuss the monitoring instruments used to manage indoor and outdoor air quality parameters efficiently?

Delta aligns with environmental imperatives while promoting innovative solutions for healthier living spaces. Commencing its eco-friendly journey in 2002, the company has consistently built green buildings and prioritized energy efficiency and sustainability in its product offerings. Our products have advanced controllers designed for monitoring and managing various parameters, like carbon dioxide levels, pollutants, humidity, and temperature. These intelligent controllers incorporate sensors that detect and showcase details about the nearby environment. This integrated setup offers users instant information on the product’s status, ensuring efficient control and management.

How do Delta products address invisible pollutants while focusing on energy efficiency and enhancing the user experience?

Delta strategically focuses on three product types in India, all aimed at improving indoor air quality. These products, already launched, focus on addressing the issue of invisible and odourless pollutants. Delta’s In-line supply fans, or ERV, utilise high-efficiency HEPA filters to bring fresh air into homes, exceeding standard healthcare requirements. The ERV system filters and cools incoming air and reduces indoor temperatures even without air conditioning, operating at low power consumption in line with Delta’s commitment to energy-efficient technology.

Delta’s stylish exhaust fans complement this fresh air intake, including ceiling models featuring LED lighting and Bluetooth capabilities for an enhanced user experience. These fans efficiently remove indoor air, maintaining a balanced and healthy environment. Delta emphasizes low power consumption by utilising BLDC technology throughout its range, aligning with its commitment to promoting energy-efficient products. Lastly, in-line supply fans are crucial in bringing/ introducing fresh air. In contrast, booster fans can minimise air travel losses, contributing to Delta’s comprehensive approach to enhancing indoor air quality.

In targeting sectors like residential, commercial, and corporate spaces, how does Delta plan to address the diverse needs of industries?

Delta emphasises energy efficiency strongly, which is evident in its trimmer’s significantly lower energy consumption during charging compared to standard models. This efficiency extends to exchanging incoming and outgoing air to improve overall cooling efficiency. This innovative method enhances cooling output while maintaining power consumption, highlighting Delta’s commitment to efficiency.

Strategically targeting three primary sectors—residential, commercial, and corporate spaces—Delta aims to tap into India’s expanding construction and awareness trends. The company aims to cater to sectors such as hospitals, schools, and industrial spaces, including tech parks, acknowledging the growing need for these spaces. For instance, schools, where children spend considerable time, are identified as crucial spaces for air quality enhancement. Similarly, crowded hospitals in urban areas are targeted to ensure a healthier environment.

How does integrating ERV technology enhance cooling and energy savings to benefit users?

Our indoor air quality products primarily aim to enhance health by addressing potential exposure to harmful substances that can lead to various health issues. This health-centric focus is the paramount reason for utilising these products. Additionally, our solutions cater to space limitations, especially in densely populated areas like Mumbai. In scenarios where space is constrained and there is no access to a balcony for ventilation, our products offer a practical way to bring in fresh outside air.

Moreover, extensive research highlights the significant impact of Delta’s indoor air quality products on air conditioning efficiency. Integrating an ERV allows the air conditioning system to operate at higher temperatures (27 28 degrees) while maintaining the same cooling effect by managing humidity and pre-cooling the air. This innovation results in a remarkable 7-degree temperature drop and an impressive 17 to 30 percent energy savings in air conditioning usage. This showcases a substantial but indirect economic benefit for users.

How do we leverage BLDC technology to offer energy-efficient solutions and integration with building automation controllers?

Our distinctive feature is the BLDC technology, which allows for firmware control and simple integration with different building automation controllers. This technology is known for its extremely low power consumption and has consistently earned Energy Star certification for seven years, emphasising its energy efficiency. In India, our products hold IGBC certification with the Green Pro logo, contributing to green initiatives in building construction. Incorporating Delta’s products in construction projects earns points from organisations like CII or IGBC, facilitating the creation of environmentally friendly structures.

How do architects and designers address challenges in integrating their products, especially concerning mindset shifts?

The main challenge involves changing mindsets, particularly among architects, which we are actively addressing by engaging with them, highlighting the technological benefits and emphasising the aesthetic appeal of our products. Our manufacturing capabilities allow customisation to meet project requirements within specific company guidelines.

Delta’s strength lies in its fusion of advanced technology and manufacturing capacity. Seeking continuous input from architects, we strive to refine and improve our products. Delta’s engagement strategy for 2024 involves extensive interactions with architects and active participation in exhibitions with live product models. These initiatives aim to offer firsthand experiences, showcasing Delta’s solutions, especially in tackling air quality issues prevalent in highly congested areas like NCR and Mumbai.

How does Delta engage architects and consultants to introduce their IAQ products?

In the initial phase of marketing its indoor air quality (IQA) products, the company aims to establish connections with architects and consultants who play a pivotal role in shaping living spaces. Architects are instrumental in creating better living environments. Delta’s market strategy involves engaging builders and consultants, primarily within the construction sector. The company focuses on distinct segments, emphasising residential and commercial markets, specifically targeting sectors such as healthcare and educational institutions, including schools and universities, as well as business parks. Delta aims to explore potential collaborations with government initiatives, offering expertise to various schemes and projects. This clear segmentation reflects Delta’s strategic approach across diverse markets.

What is your strategy regarding local manufacturing in India and its plans for producing different types of fans?
