Save on Your Heating and Cooling

Heating and cooling makes up about 40% of the energy used in commercial buildings, which is why outdated HVAC systems and other structural issues could be a huge drain on your energy bill.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

  • Make sure your equipment is the right size. The most efficient sizing will require the heating system to run constantly at full load on the coldest day that the building is designed to handle.

  • 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.

  • Considere la opción de motores de velocidad variable y compresores. En lugar de funcionar de manera constante con potencia completa, estos equipos permiten que las bombas térmicas y los aires acondicionados adapten mejor su uso de la energía con relación a la fluctuación de temperatura.
