Let’s talk about 30-40% of your electricity bill. That’s how much it costs the average homeowner or commercial building owner to provide proper heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC).
A good HVAC system is the key to maintaining a comfortable, healthy and interior environment. Through the years, I have been asked by many owners for a strategy to reduce their cost of energy and HVAC.
They don’t want to sacrifice the interior environmental conditions, but they do want a point-by-point plan to follow.
The interesting thing that often happens is that energy bills are lowered substantially and the HVAC system performance is improved. This is a standard function of any mechanical engineer specializing in energy and HVAC.
The information on this page will help homeowners, building owners and building operators make informed decisions about existing HVAC systems or future upgrades.
Operation and Maintenance
The first step to achieving energy and HVAC system optimization is load reduction. This step normally consists of a long-range plan which itemizes the actions to be taken based on the best return on investment.
