EAC – Emilygrene Air Conditioning And Heating – offers both energy efficient HVAC upgrades and preventative maintenance options for smart business owners ready to #GOGRENE just in time for 2019. Our team specializes in design, installation, and keeping a close eye on your HVAC equipment to ensure a longer lifespan and maximize savings before closing the books on 2018.
Our friends at Commercial Observer have compiled the specific components business owners are changing out to rid of energy waste. The temperature of your building or facility is critical to how much any business spends on energy, with HVAC systems often difficult to understand or manipulate. Save your business the time and effort of installing an entirely new system, and let our expert technicians assess where important areas for improvement today.
The following is an excerpt from “Why Building Owners Invest In HVAC Energy Efficiency Upgrades” written by ConEdison and originally published by Commercial Observer. For the complete article, visit www.commercialobserver.com.
There are a few systems that make up an HVAC system. The Air Compressor helps to power a variety of equipment, including machine tools and control systems. To maximize the efficiency of your air compressor, check the system for leaks. In a pressurized system, leaked air can account for the biggest inefficiency. Check and clean the air filter occasionally, it reduces the pressure drop of the compressed air system. The Compressor’s belt should also be checked for proper tightness. An updated and checked air compressor can reduce the amount of Kilowatts (KW) used during peak times. The DMP will pay up to $1,620 per KW (or up to 50% of project costs) for the installation of this and other HVAC measures.
Individual components and subsystems in a chiller plant determine the efficiency level of the entire chiller operation. The components of a chiller plant include chillers, pumps, and the water tower. Chiller operation can consume more than 30% of the building’s energy usage during summer hours, and if these components are not up to date and working properly, your business could be missing out on substantial energy savings.
Some tips to save energy include, pre-cool the building by reducing the space temperature 5-10 degrees below normal, reduce the number of chillers in use, set the load on the operating chillers to prevent them from increasing, utilize the variable frequency drives on the chiller. These techniques can reduce the chillers load by 15%.
Modular boilers are ideal for the implementation of a boiler control strategy to keep your energy use in line with your business needs. In the case of multiple modular boilers, different boilers can operate at different energy levels which can increase the efficiency of the heating system. Boiler maintenance is essential to an efficient heating system. There are several key systems that need to be regularly assessed and maintained by a heating system professional including venting system, heat exchanger, boiler or furnace controls, forced air system, hot water system, and steam system.
There are many ways you can update your system to ensure your buildings conditions are regulated with respect to temperature, humidity and air quality. Incorporating an up to date HVAC system will reduce energy during peak energy consumption times and will reduce demand on the system.
