Ahorrar en calefacción y refrigeración

Heating and cooling makes up about 40% of the energy used in commercial buildings, which is why outdated HVAC systems and other structural issues could be a huge drain on your energy bill.

Your Quick Energy-Efficiency Checklist

  • Asegúrese de que su equipo es el tamaño correcto. El dimensionamiento más eficiente requerirá el sistema de calefacción para funcionar constantemente a plena carga en el día más frío que el edificio está diseñado para manejar.

  • Geothermal heat pumps transfer heat between the building and the ground. Although they cost more to install, they have low operating costs. If your building is located near a body of water, such as a pond or lake, water-source heat pumps can offer similar advantages.

  • The heat pipe, originally developed by NASA to cool spacecraft, lowers an air conditioner's energy consumption by 5 – 10% by improving its ability to dehumidify the air.

  • Consider variable speed motors and compressors. Instead of always operating at full power, these allow heat pumps and air conditioners to more closely match energy use to temperature fluctuation.
