An HVAC system in a commercial building typically accounts for 17‑49% of the building's total energy use. HVAC Optimization program is designed to increase the energy efficiency of specific areas of the HVAC system, lowering energy use and energy costs. It’s a rare opportunity to lower overhead operating costs while increasing HVAC system reliability and making the building more comfortable.
Energy-Efficient HVAC Systems, From Rooftop to Room
The first step to unlocking the benefits of HVAC energy efficiency is to think of HVAC as a “system.” An HVAC system is everything that conditions and moves air to and from the indoor space: the rooftop unit, ductwork, vents, and more.
It sounds complicated, but you can think of an HVAC system as a combination of two distinct, primary sections: the HVAC unit, which conditions air and controls air intake, and the HVAC ductwork, which delivers the air to the spaces inside.
In order to have an HVAC system that is running as efficiently as possible all components of the unit and ductwork need to work together like a well-coached team.
Opportunity Is Everywhere
HVAC Optimization is a uniquely holistic and technically comprehensive energy efficiency program for commercial HVAC systems. The program is designed to bring a new level of performance and energy efficiency of specific components of your HVAC unit and ductwork. Plus, the program offers additional optional opportunities to further increase energy efficiency by leveraging advanced HVAC technology.
HVAC Optimization is built upon proven principles of building science. The program can give you an HVAC system that is optimized for performance and energy efficiency.
