It’s possible to reduce the amount of energy consumed by your business even as you make the most of your heating and cooling systems.
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment can contribute to up to half of your monthly electric bill – something not many people know.
However, it is possible to reverse this by employing some of these proven energy savings technology for your business.
Energy Saving HVAC Technologies For Your Business
The following are energy saving and money saving heating and cooling technologies that can help benefit your business.
Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV)
One way to save energy is by using energy recovery ventilation or ERV technology. This technology works by capturing the energy in residual air and uses it to condition the fresh air incoming into your ventilation. By doing this, it reduces the amount of energy used on heating or cooling indoor environments.
Electronically Commutated Motors
Another way to help save energy is for electronically commutated motors to be installed into your HVAC blower to regulate its speed. The motors determine how much speed is required to match the demand in the environment. This prevents your HVAC blower from using up unnecessary energy as only adequate energy amounts are used to blow enough air into the environment.
Thermal Energy Storage
A third energy saving technology you need to know of is thermal energy storage. This technology works by extracting energy trapped in ice or frozen water. This energy can be used during the night shifting electrical use to lower rates.
Sealing The Ducts
A significant HVAC energy saving tip is sealing off air ducts. Ducts are prone to leaking and are thus a substantial source for energy wastage. Duct sealing can be done regularly as you maintain your HVAC system to ensure any new leaks are sealed up.
Saving Money For Your Business
HVAC systems are designed to work as efficiently as possible; however, not all of them are regulated to consumer less power. With the above technologies, you can cut down on energy consumed, help your unit(s) work more efficiently and most importantly, save money!
