HVAC/R machines are at the heart of our economy. According to plantengineering.com, Commercial buildings use 42 percent of energy consumption and HVAC/R systems accommodate around 40 percent of that. These are machines that meet demands at next to nothing costs. Short start-up times, low energy usage and a price that matches a machine’s value in functionality is the desire of any HVAC user.
With today’s push for green energy, it is imperative to keep these machines running at peak energy conservation levels. This can be done with simple solutions such as software upgrades that reduce complexity and other operational problems. These simple software solutions allow buildings to conserve more energy by running more smoothly.
Emissions impact and energy usage of commercial buildings has caused environmental alarm. It should be the priority of any building owner or technician to make sure energy reduction needs are properly maintained for the lifetime of these buildings. Since commercial buildings are responsible for almost half of overall energy consumption, a widespread effort would have a lasting impact.
It is being demanded that HVAC machines raise their efficiency ratings while lowering their already below average cost. This requires that handlers of HVAC equipment be aware and trained in energy saving initiatives. The end goal is for HVAC machine users to find cost effective and creative ways maintain green energy standards. While technicians trained in energy efficient technology are available to keep these machines that way for the life of a building.
Technicians with training in up-to-date green energy technology are at high demand. After the machines themselves, their technicians are next in line to help in energy conservation goals. They as well as building owners need to be knowledgeable in the software solutions that will keep their HVAC machines running longer and more efficiently.
