Ener.co HVAC equipment coil retrofit saves facility $31,818 per year in energy costs.

Project Scope

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.

Project Summary

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.

  • Energy Savings

    Annual electric savings equaled $31,818 or 176,767 kWh. Peak power demand was reduced by 22 kW.

  • GHG Reduction

    With this project the client reduces their annual green house gas emissions by 72 tons.

  • Investment

    Project cost including HVAC improvements and Energy Performance M&V totaled $37,292.

  • Financial Return

    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.

  • Other Benefits

    Extended life of the coil assembly. Increased heat transfer efficiency.
    Improved thermal comfort and humidity removal. Reduced
    frequency of compressor and fan motor replacement.

We value a collaborative relationship with our customers, empowering them to become educated consumers. Here is some insight from our clients who have achieved a significant savings in their energy consumption and costs.

Our company has been providing software enabled M&V solutions for energy efficiency technology companies for many years now, and I've seen an enormous amount of "before" and "after" data from energy efficiency projects. As Ener.co®'s M&V partner, I can say that Ener.co® treatments consistently produce strong improvements in efficiency and savings for their clients' facilities.
Connell McGill Co-Founder/CEO, Enertiv
Ener.co® treated two of the oldest and worst performing units we had - and the results were remarkable. They allowed us to defer having to replace the units for three and a half years. Ener.co® proved to be a no fuss, low cost solution to our very serious problem.
Brendan Farrell Resident Manager, Tribeca Tower (Related Companies)
With Ener.co® we saved ourselves about $120,000 in capital expense by treating instead of replacing the coils.
