The building owner, a regional health care provider, engaged an independent engineer to provide and execute a pilot study to measure the energy benefits of installing ENRG Blanket as an energy conservation measure. The results would then be used as an energy predictor for their other facilities. This owner is dedicated to reducing energy consumption without impacting on occupant comfort.
This 25,526 sq. f.t facility was one if the owner’s newer and most energy efficient buildings. The building had significant energy efficiency measures installed and the desire was to find additional viable measure to continue to improve their energy performance.
The engineer conducted a thorough audit and analysis. HVAC energy consumption was measured in 30 minute intervals for 7 days prior to installation.
The impact on the facility’s HVAC energy consumption was immediate. Post installation analyses indicated a significant decrease in raw HVAC current consumption. After normalizing the post installation energy data to account for annual weather patterns, the project resulted in a 26% reducation in HCAV energy consumption (30,00 kWh/yr).
