App Calculates HVAC/R Energy Savings

June 11, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Schneider Energy ManageSchneider Electric developed a free HVAC/R Calculator App that comes integrated with its Condenser Fan Pak for air-cooled chillers.

The app quantifies how much energy can be saved when Floating High (Head) Pressure control with VSD technology is applied to air-cooled chillers. By entering the geographic location of the chiller, costs per kWh, equipment run-time and chiller tonnage, the calculator generates a tablet view and produces a PDF report showing estimated annual energy savings potential. The report can then be saved and shared via the email tab.

Schneider says applying its Condenser Fan Pak to existing air-cooled chillers is a retrofit solution that can help reduce the chiller’s energy consumption by up to 30 percent, bring the chiller up to today’s energy efficiency standards and extend the useful life of the air-cooled chiller.
