HVAC Solutions

Whether implementing simple upgrades or whole system replacements, HVAC enhancements can improve occupant comfort and reduce energy costs.

My_Alt_Text

Too hot, too cold or just right? With efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), you don’t have to live with uncomfortable choices. Upgrading HVAC systems will help improve the comfort of everyone in your facility.

HVAC can account for up to a third of your building’s energy costs. Energy efficiency improvements will help control these costs, and you’ll be more comfortable with your bottom line.

Take A System Level View

HVAC systems are complex and have many interconnected parts. Upgrading and automating them gives greater control over the system. Those controls reduce energy costs and maintain a comfortable internal facility temperature. Your system also works best in a properly insulated building with minimal air leaks. And when a system is more than 15 years old, evaluating it for replacement makes strong fiscal sense.

Stay Cool, Save More

Take advantage of cooler weather. Air-side economizers take in and filter outside air to cool your facility during the Summer, Spring and Fall. You can also go beyond common retrofits and upgrades by installing an water-side economizer to provide a free cooling option for water-cooled chillers in Winter months. Bottom line: you save!

Take Control

Technological advancements in air-intake, temperature and occupancy controls give you greater command over your HVAC system. You’ll save energy and reduce maintenance costs.

  • Demand controlled ventilation regulates outdoor air intake depending on the number of occupants in a room - your system will work to capacity only when needed!
  • Retrofit your HVAC with advanced thermostats - wirelessly set a heating and cooling schedule.
  • Variable speed drives (VSDs) allow your HVAC system to precisely respond to real-time ventilation needs and reduce energy use, while also reducing wear and tear on parts.
  • Tune up your HVAC system to extend its lifespan.
  • Replace older equipment with newer, energy-efficient systems, and earn incentives!
