Adding HVAC controls on existing equipment can dramatically reduce energy use associated to compressors, motors and heat exchangers.
Most buildings use inefficient HVAC systems that waste as much as 30 percent in energy consumption. Duty cycle controls such as PACEControls, maximize the efficiency of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems by using only the most efficient slice of the heating or cooling cycle and establishing optimal run times for HVAC compressor and burner units. Pacing the consumption of energy allows for a more efficient heat transfer and boosts the overall efficiency of the HVAC unit. Less energy consumption equals lower electricity bills.
Businesses can realize 15-30% energy savings by installing HVAC controls that optimize efficiency and usage.
Variable Frequency Drives - Variable frequency drives (VFDs) reduce motor loads resulting in significant energy savings and maintenance cost reductions. VFD-driven load reduction allows motors to achieve load requirements without running at maximum capacity — resulting in significant energy savings. VFDs also gradually ramp the motor up to operating speed, lessening mechanical stress, reducing maintenance and repair costs, and extending the life of the motor and the driven equipment.
Energy cost savings on variable torque applications can be significant, often paying for the cost of the VFD within a matter of months.
