The Color of Energy Efficiency
Real, data-driven HVAC preventative maintenance can produce remarkable energy savings. See the dirt coming from the chiller condenser coil to the right? That is the color of energy efficiency.
Now more than ever, there is an increasing effort to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels.
This is not an all or nothing proposition. As a facility manager, there are real, concrete actions that you can take to improve the efficiency of your HVAC Equipment.
According to the US Department of Energy, Chillers consume more than 50% of electrical energy during seasonal periods of building use. Conservative estimates are that there are more than 120,000 chillers in the US that are expending more than 30% in additional energy through operational inefficiencies. 30%..... that's a lot of wasted energy.
Start with the data.
Identifying opportunities of efficiency (EOE) can be discovered by collecting and organizing the data in your facility. At InfraPros, we use the myZEFER application tool. myZEFER uses your facility data to provide a road map to more efficient operation.
There is also an unexpected benefit from improving your efficiency with InfraPros maintenance and service. We'll give you the tools to recognize and celebrate your efficiencies with your employees, clients and the public using easy to understand DOE icons and metrics.
InfraPros HVAC PM clients are saving on average 20% of their energy use prior to our data-driven services. Call us today to see how you can save real operational $$ in your facility.
