An Illustrated Guide to CES Energy Plus Tune-Ups

  1. Programmable Thermostat Replacement: Installing a programmable thermostat gives you the ability to set a heating/cooling schedule based on actual building occupancy, rather than conditioning the air 24-7-365.
  2. Programmable Thermostat Modification:  This measure consists of finding and setting the ideal operational schedule for your HVAC system.
  3. Condenser Coil Cleaning &
  4. Evaporator Coil Cleaning:  Cleaning coils ensures optimal heat transfer, resulting in decreased run times, energy savings, and an overall reduction of energy demand.
  5. Adjust Refrigerant Charge:  We test your current refrigerant charge, correct issues as necessary, and re test the charge to verify the success of the repair.
  6. Cogged V-Belt:  Cogged v-belts run with less mechanical resistance than smooth blower belts, increasing efficiency, saving energy, and prolonging the life of your equipment.
  7. Economizer Repair:  If your HVAC’s economizer is not operational, we repair as necessary to restore functionality.
  8. Economizer Changeover Sensor:  Replacement If necessary, we replace the changeover sensor that tells the economizer when to open the damper and let in fresh outside air.
  9. Economizer Adjustment:  By optimizing economizer settings, we save energy by ensuring your building is making the best use of free, fresh outdoor air, rather than relying completely on mechanical cooling.  Demand-Controlled Ventilation with Variable Frequency Drive:  Demand-controlled ventilation with variable frequency drive (DCV with VFD) is a series of complementary upgrades that enable the HVAC system to respond to real-time ventilation needs and reduce energy use for heating, cooling, and supply fan motor operation:
  10. Digital Economizer Control:  Installing digital economizer controls is like giving an economizer a bigger, better brain. This upgrade saves energy by allowing the economizer to be more precise and finely tuned, making the fullest use of cool, fresh outdoor air to help cool the air inside.
  11. CO2 Sensor:  Pairing digital economizer controls with a CO2 sensor in the indoor space allows the HVAC system to respond to real-time HVAC needs, reducing overall HVAC runtime.
  12. Variable Frequency Drive:  Adding a VFD to your fan motor allows your motor to vary its speed throughout the day depending on real-time ventilation needs, resulting in a reduction in energy demand.
  13. Energy-Efficient Motor:  Upgrading the HVAC fan motor to an efficient NEMA or Permanent Magnet motor saves energy and extends the life of your HVAC equipment.
