PTAC Energy Saver for Commercial HVAC Energy Savings

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 Illinois.  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.

ComEd Takes Steps to Implement Approved Expansion of Energy Efficiency Programs

ComEd filed on Wednesday a request with the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC), which regulates the state’s public utilities, seeking cost recovery of $50 million that would support expanded programs to help customers reduce their energy usage and bills and contribute to a cleaner environment. The cost increase would support the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (CEJA), the state’s new energy law, and ComEd’s ICC-approved four-year energy efficiency plan, which significantly increases funding for programs benefitting low-income customers.

“ComEd energy efficiency programs have only grown more effective in helping customers of all kinds reduce their energy bills and consumption, which also helps us reduce dependence on fossil fuels,” said Gil Quiniones, CEO, ComEd. “Customers now can save as much energy in five years’ time what used to take them a decade. And the cost to customers is still far less than what it was under the energy efficiency program prior to 2017. Thanks to CEJA, customers have more savings opportunities than ever.”

If approved, the request would add about 30 cents to ComEd’s average monthly residential customer bill beginning in January 2023. ComEd customers have saved more than $6.4 billion on their bills as a result of the energy efficiency program that ComEd launched in 2008, with nearly 460,000 families and businesses participating in 2021.
