Ener.co HVAC equipment coil retrofit saves facility $31,818 per year in energy costs.
Ener.co implemented comprehensive HVAC coil energy savings retrofits and the customized Energy Performance Dashboard at a medical center located in New York, NY. To date, Ener.co has treated the facility’s entire existing capacity of air-cooled cooling equipment.
In the summer of 2015, Ener.co performed its comprehensive energy saving retrofit measure on the condenser coil on 220 tons of air-cooled cooling equipment at a medical center in New York, NY. In this project, Ener.co upgraded four air-cooled condensers by treating their coils with high efficiency Enercoat™ technology. Total savings was determined under M&V IPMVP® Option B Protocol. The net energy savings achieved by the coil treatment amounted to 233% of the initial energy savings projection. Treatment improved airflow, improved moisture removal, enhanced heat transfer, and produced a permanent reduction of compressor and fan power consumption.
Annual electric savings equaled $31,818 or 176,767 kWh. Peak power demand was reduced by 22 kW.
With this project the client reduces their annual green house gas emissions by 72 tons.
Project cost including HVAC improvements and Energy Performance M&V totaled $37,292.
The project has paid itself back completely from energy savings in 10 and a half months. The project is on track to produce an additional $445,452 over the next 10 years.
Extended life of the coil assembly. Increased heat transfer efficiency.
Improved thermal comfort and humidity removal. Reduced
frequency of compressor and fan motor replacement.
