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 North Dakota. PTAC Energy Saver offers an Adaptive Climate Controller (ACC). It is a proven HVAC energy saving devicethat 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.

Grand Forks plumbing and cooling business faces off against busy season, summer temperatures
GRAND FORKS — The summer months can be some of the busiest for Vilandre Heating, AC and Plumbing.
While North Dakota winters are notorious across the United States, temperatures can still rise to the 90s in the summer and occasionally even top out in the triple digits. Tyler Thompson, lead service technician at Vilandre Heating, AC and Plumbing, said the busy season has already begun.
“We are already extremely busy,” Thompson said. “So right now, we’ve got a couple of our guys that are tackling most of our maintenance contracts. We’ve got residential maintenance and then we’ve got commercial maintenance.”
One difference for Vilandre’s work on the commercial side of things is the businesses it serves usually put in calls earlier than residents do. Thompson said commercial properties usually begin running air conditioning much earlier because it’s usually a larger space needing to be cooled than a home.
Thompson’s favorite part about the job is working with different clientele. Working with homeowners is a bit more personal, and he enjoys seeing dozens of houses in Grand Forks and hearing stories about them from their owners. On the commercial side of things, he said Vilanre’s clients are usually busier, but many of them use Vilandre each year to maintain their air conditioning systems.
“I like going in there every year and getting interactions with them,” Thompson said. “You get to chat up with them a little bit when time allows it, but both sides are very beneficial for us at Vilandre.”
Even with high temperatures only reaching the mid-70s right now, Vilandre has begun receiving calls from homeowners about their air conditioning systems. Thompson said the call volume will increase as the temperatures do.
