Energy savings in the HVAC environment

Ray Van Haven, GM – Blygold Oceania

As most facility managers are aware of, operating your HVAC equipment accounts for 40-70% of their energy bill. As a result engineers work hard to improve their equipment and make it more energy efficient and economical.

So what is it that we can do in Air Conditioning (AC) that can substantially decrease operating costs and / or increase efficiency? One of the core problems facing many facility managers is the degradation of the HVAC equipment and the subsequent inefficiencies such as increased maintenance and energy costs.

An important part of this degradation is due to corrosion in the coils of the chillers.
