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 Residential 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 Oregon.  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 Residential HVAC Energy Saving info for Oregon:

Lawmakers consider heat relief bills to protect vulnerable Oregonians

Bills would provide millions in funding for cooling systems and weather shelters to provide relief during extreme weather events.

Oregon lawmakers are considering two bills aimed at helping vulnerable Oregonians during extreme heat events. The bills were created in response to last June’s unprecedented heat wave when nearly 100 people died from heat-related illnesses.

In the first week of this year’s short legislative session, lawmakers held public hearings on House Bill 4058, aimed at providing emergency heat relief services to low-income households and communities for color, and Senate Bill 1536, which allows renters to install air conditioning units in their homes. The bills have bipartisan support and are led by a coalition of environmental, climate, health and justice groups.

The first of two bills would direct $5 million to the Oregon Health Authority to create an emergency distribution program that would deliver air conditioners and air filters to homes in need.

The bill would also allocate $10 million to the Oregon Department of Energy to create an incentive program to make it easier for vulnerable households to purchase energy-efficient heat pump cooling systems. The program would prioritize people with low-income, communities of color, rural and coastal communities, as well as those who use wood, oil and propane to heat their homes.

During a public hearing before the House Environment and Natural Resources Committee, Oriana Magnera, a manager with the environmental justice nonprofit Verde, said the state needs to act now to prevent more heat-related deaths like the ones that happened during last year’s heat dome.
