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 Michigan.  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.

Public facilities in Michigan continue to save millions with efficiency financing tool

Michigan officials recognized six public entities this week for making $39.5 million in cumulative energy efficiency investments that will save nearly $2.1 million a year in energy costs.

The projects by local units of government, public schools and colleges may not have otherwise happened without performance contracting, which allows public entities often short on capital to pay for multi-million dollar clean energy projects. Similar to Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing, debt services on the projects are paid back through annual energy savings.

While it’s a more established financing tool than PACE, performance contracts are geared toward public entities, said Daniel Mack, an energy solutions account executive at Johnson Controls and president of the Michigan chapter of the Energy Services Coalition.

It’s exciting to see it become more commonplace and helping more school districts and cities,” he said. “Cities, schools and universities are getting a lot of things done they didn’t think they could. It makes people feel better about what they’re doing versus scraping and clawing for every dollar.”

Under energy performance contracts, various efficiency projects are paid for through avoided energy costs. These projects include HVAC upgrades, energy-monitoring devices, lighting and weatherproofing. Though Mack said they make up a small percentage of projects in Michigan, renewable energy installations like geothermal or solar also qualify.
