Ensure design intent optimizes hydronic system performance and comfort
Choosing the right devices in a hydronic system up front can lead to more frugal system layout and significant savings in first costs, maintenance costs and performance costs. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, commercial buildings consume about 40 percent of all energy worldwide, and HVAC systems account for more than 40 percent of buildings’ energy usage. Hydronic flow optimization is a prime way to reduce HVAC energy consumption, while increasing overall building efficiency and operational performance. Get the mechanics right to realize the best results…following the latest technology fads may not yield the right outcome.
Improve hydronic system design to deliver more value
Proven technology, such as pressure independent control valves and variable frequency drives, can effectively contribute to optimized designs by maximizing performance of variable and constant flow systems. Learn about specific benefits of hydronic flow optimization designs, which include simplifying contractor selection, installation and commissioning, and helping end users reduce energy costs and improve occupant comfort.
Schedule a Lunch & Learn
We have an AIA-certified Lunch & Learn program that can be scheduled at your convenience to learn about more ways to optimize hydronic systems for peak performance. The program is AIA/CES approved for 1.0 LU/HSW. The session reviews how proven technologies such as Pressure Independent Control Valves and Variable Frequency Drives can maximize hydronic system performance.
Siemens pressure independent control valves reduce Peachtree Center’s energy usage by 13.8%
Commercial office buildings require a vast amount of energy and water to heat and cool the indoor environment. Peachtree Center was no exception, and the hot, humid Atlanta summers made the challenge even more daunting. Siemens presented Peachtree Center with an innovative and cost-effective solution using pressure independent control valves.
