More than half of all commercial building space in the US is heated and/or cooled by packaged HVAC equipment, and approximately 290,000 new units are shipped each year. The average age of existing units in the western US is over 10 years, and it is not uncommon to find buildings conditioned by packaged RTUs 20 years old. In addition to the lower efficiency of older units, more than two-thirds of existing units have maintenance, control, and performance issues that impact both energy use and occupant comfort. This seminar will review successful strategies employed in a variety of C/I retrofit and retro-commissioning projects to improve efficiency and performance of existing packaged HVAC systems, and energy and cost savings achieved. Examples will be taken from the presenter's experience with healthcare, hospitality, biotech and office building projects.
