This class is offered by Efficiency Works and is approved for 1.5 LU/HSW Continuing Education Units for AIA .

The world is filled with packaged rooftop air conditioning units.  More commercial buildings are cooled by this equipment than any other type, but these units have a problem.  Most of them are set up to condition single zones, and their fans run all the time at full power when the buildings they condition are occupied.  For most of that time, when those fans are only supplying ventilation air, or when heating and cooling loads are less than peak, they could run at reduced speed and power and save a significant amount of energy.  This control strategy is known as single zone variable air volume (SZVAV).  Several rooftop unit manufacturers now have products that run SZVAV control, and kits are available to convert existing units to SZVAV control.  The installations may have slightly different technological approaches, but they all claim about the same savings: 25 to 50% of overall HVAC energy.  Come learn the different available technologies, how these systems work, what independent tests support their energy savings claims, and how to get incentives to help offset the cost of these controls.

Colorado is a prime location to utilize evaporative cooling technology for rooftop units.  Given our low humidity we can take advantage of the natural water vapor cycle.  Utilizing evaporative technology for direct, indirect or hybrid cooling, as well as pre-cooling, can result in a reduction of peak cooling load of 15-35% and an overall cooling energy savings of 10-20%.  Learn about this technology and the rebates to support implementation for your customers.
