TIME TO ACT:
Save 20% or more on HVAC. It’s important now more than ever for a sustainable future!
Optimizing PTAC units with a “smart” device is a fast, easy, and cost-effective way to achieve Commercial HVAC Energy Savings. A Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner is a type of self-contained heating and air conditioning system commonly found in: Hotels, Motels, Senior Housing Facilities, Hospitals, Condominiums, Apartment Buildings, and Add-on Rooms & Sunrooms.
Business owners and homeowners face increasing challenges with energy costs to save energy and money in Pennsylvania. PTAC Energy Saver offers an Adaptive Climate Controller (ACC). It is a proven HVAC energy saving device that quickly installs on PTAC units. There are many companies that claim to produce energy savings, but the ACC device is multi-panted and proven over many years. Plus, it has extensive validation tests by organizations such as:
- ConEdison, Manhattan Plaza New York City
- Environmental Test Laboratory, Ohio
- EME Consulting Engineers (Third Party), Sponsored by NYSERDA, New York
- State University of New York, Oneonta, NY
- Tim Garrison (Third Party Testing)
- McQuay Cooling Tests
- Purdue University Tests (Phoenix)
- ConEdison Tests by ERS
Typically, when an HVAC system turns off, shortly after, the blower fan motor turns off. The ACC reprograms the blower fan not to shut off but to throttle back the rpm airflow to an exceptionally low speed, quiescent level airflow or “idle speed”. This allows for a gentle but continuous air movement into the building that helps keep equilibrium of climate conditions in the occupied space and saved energy.

Here is an example of some Commercial HVAC Energy Saving info for Pennsylvania:
An energy performance contracting program will be used by a county in Pennsylvania to improve its efficiency in lighting, HVAC, water, and other systems throughout its facilities, and the project is anticipated to save Greene County $2.9 million in energy and operating costs over the next 20 years.
It will be implemented at eight county buildings, including offices, the county jail, and the courthouse.
In addition to improved lighting and HVAC systems, and water conservation upgrades, the project will also enhance building automation and controls.
Facility services provider ABM is leading the energy program for Greene County. The company’s program is designed for local governments like schools and counties to invest in facility infrastructure and work toward sustainability goals. It provides customized technical and financial platforms for the projects.
The county approved the project in March, according to the Observer-Reporter, and is using $2.7 million in funds from the American Rescue Plan. Earlier this year 59 businesses and organizations sent a letter to state governments asking them to use federal funds from COVID-19 relief and infrastructure packages to implement energy efficiency and demand management programs, similar to the Greene County effort.
The county also told the Observer-Reporter that the need for HVAC system improvements was an important reason for the project. Heating and cooling systems can account for more than 12% of the energy use in a building.
