Monitor, Measure, Analyze and Control Filtration and Energy Costs
1. Fan Energy Efficiency:
Fan energy consumes approximately 14% of U.S. electricity in industry per DOE. For HVAC systems optimizing fan energy can bring real savings.
Example 1: The Air Energy Controller™ provides the owner accurate data on the life cycle costs of air filtration. The owner selected energy as the replacement parameter.
Example 2: Using a differential pressure gauge, the owner has chosen to extend the life of the filters and incur higher energy costs.
Assume a 30hp Air Handler, 350 fpm, variable frequency drive, 15 pre-filters & 15 extended surface, 8760 hr/year, 10ft x 5ft filter bank, 0.10/kWh:
|Product||Energy||Man-hrs Filter Inspect||Total Cost|
|1: Air Energy Controller™||$3,271.00||N/A||$3271.00|
|2: Differential pressure gauge||$4,907.00||$300.00||$5207.00|
With accurate monitoring, the air filters can be changed based upon IAQ and fan energy analysis.
Using the Filtrometer™ AEC the owner replaces the filters at 1.0” W.C. as opposed to using differential pressure replacing at 1.5” W.C. and incurring increased energy costs.
Annual Energy Savings: $1,636.00
Maintenance Cost Savings: $300.00
Total Annual Savings: $1,936.00
