Energy efficiency tip of the day (pumps and fans energy saving retrofits)

Check out your fans and pumps. Proper maintenance will save energy by ensuring that air or water flows efficiently through your systems. Pump up the savings even more by properly sizing electric motors and drives. To conserve energy and cut costs, consider the following energy savings retrofits:

  1. Install variable speed motors and drives so the flow of air or water can be adjusted to changing requirements.
  2. Replace outdated units with more efficient and correctly sized equipment.
  3. Consider decentralizing a major system into sub-systems that serve their own specific requirements.
  4. Consider controlling the ventilation system with ultrasonic occupancy sensors – this saved one manufacturer 50 percent of operating costs.
  5. Consider installing a computerized energy management control system.
  6. Consider installing variable voltage, variable frequency inverters to allow motor speed to be continuously varied to meet load demand – power savings range from 30 to 60 percent. This option is applicable for systems with low static head requirements.
