Running at the right temperature.
Rethink Industrial HVAC to maximize efficiency. Heating and AC units are often located high overhead in industrial spaces that can easily be 20 to 30 feet above the floor. The rule of thumb is that for every 10 foot drop required to reach the plant floor, there’s a 10°F drop off in temperature. That means you’re filling a lot of negative space with wasted energy. And pushing that air means even more energy to fans or blowers.
Help safeguard employee health + wellness.
Properly engineered industrial HVAC systems can protect employees in two other important ways:
1. Disinfect circulating air – there are several ways UV light can be incorporated into HVAC systems to help protect employees from viruses and other contagions. For more insights, download our white paper: COVID-19 Coronavirus & Infectious Disease Prevention.
2. Eliminate potentially dangerous strobing issues – when big overhead fans are used to push climate controlled air down to the plant floor, the large blades can produce a strobing effect with overhead lighting. This effect can be very fatiguing and disorienting for plant personnel, creating potentially dangerous operating environments. By engineering more effective solutions, we can help you save energy while supporting improved employee safety and productivity.
ENGINEER THE RIGHT SOLUTION.
HVC Energy Management studies existing heating and cooling distribution methods and looks for ways to adjust the heating and cooling to where it’s needed. Ductwork that reaches the plant floor minimizes lost energy and the power required to distribute air where it’s needed.
- Reduce energy costs
- Improve employee working conditions
- Make employees more productive
