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 Maine.  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 Maine:

Maine nursing homes offered funding to help filter viruses, reduce energy use

Maine nursing homes have until the end of January to take the state up on an offer to help them upgrade to more energy-efficient heating and cooling systems.

Efficiency Maine, the state’s energy efficiency program administrator, launched a program specifically for long-term care facilities in October, offering larger rebates toward the purchase and installation of approved heating and cooling, lighting and kitchen equipment. 

The timing was meant to coincide with ventilation improvements in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. However, variant surges since then have again left facility administrators spread thin and raised questions about the logistics and capacity for taking on large capital projects amid the ongoing crisis. Facilities have until Jan. 31 to apply for incentives and until July 1 to complete their projects.

“These are facilities that are really important to the well-being of the entire citizenship in Maine,” said Rick Meinking, a senior program manager at Efficiency Maine, noting the state has an aging population. “We’re really excited to offer the HVAC and heating and cooling solutions for these folks because this is a big deal.”
