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 New Jersey. 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.

Here is an example of some Commercial HVAC Energy Saving info for New Jersey:
NJ Schools, Small Businesses Can Upgrade HVAC, Plumbing with $180M Grant
The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities has launched a federally funded mechanism to help schools and small businesses across the state repair and replace heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, plumbing fixtures, and certain appliances.
More than $135 million of the $180 million allocated in the Schools and Small Business Energy Efficiency Stimulus Program will be earmarked for the Garden State's most underserved communities, according to NJBPU President Joseph Fiordaliso.
Fiordaliso said many of the eligible locations are within older cities where infrastructure has aged without being adequately updated.
"I find it much more exciting, since it is focusing on underserved communities and providing what I believe is more equity," he said.
And not only are these systems out of date in many cases, according to Fiordaliso, but they also may not meet modern efficiency or health standards.
"When you talk about the water, we're talking about conservation. Water uses the most energy, by the way, of any other industry," he said. "If they're old cities, the pipes have to be old, one would assume. So it's important that we rectify as much of this as we possibly can."
The program was drawn up based on legislation signed by Gov. Phil Murphy in August, and backed by state Senate President Stephen Sweeney, Sen. Troy Singleton, and Assembly members Wayne DeAngelo, Thomas Giblin, and Pamela Lampitt.
While the timeline under which each individual school or business will carry out these repairs will vary, NJBPU plans to begin approving applications by Wednesday, Dec. 1.
Fiordaliso said quick action is needed to bring these buildings and their communities up to speed — and up to code.
"We have to attack climate change from many different directions if we're going to be successful, and we have to include every segment of our population if we're going to be successful," he said.
