HVAC new Green Technologies

Commercial HVAC Systems

Building commissioning provides documented confirmation that building systems function according to criteria set forth in the project documents to satisfy the owner’s operational needs.

Advanced technologies for construction management, engineering design, and fabrication and installation are being applied to design and build buildings and manage the construction process. It is becoming standard for high-tech equipment, controls, and communications systems to be put into the building to provide power, lighting, comfort, communications, security, and life-safety protection.

Commissioning for Existing Buildings

Commissioning for existing buildings (sometimes referred to as retrofit or retro-commissioning) is a systematic process for investigating, analyzing, and optimizing the performance of building systems by improving their operation and maintenance to ensure their continued performance over time. This process helps make the building systems perform interactively to meet the owner’s current facility requirements. Commissioning existing systems may require developing new functional criteria to address the owner’s current requirements for system performance.

And some owners decide to go even further, expending the effort to make the building perform up to a green standard by the U.S. Green Buildings Council’s LEED rating system. Commissioning helps ensure that new buildings are properly designed, constructed, and prepared for occupancy, operations, and maintenance.

Green Technology and HVAC

First of all we need to define Green Technology before we compare it to HVAC and how the HVAC industry is working to make equipment and designs green technology friendly. Green Technology uses evolving technology to use methods and materials to develop techniques that are friendly or friendlier to the environment that past methods and material. It is constantly evolving as new ideas about environmental friendly concepts are put into place and used to make things more efficient and friendly to the environment. It has become necessary for many people and industries to stop ignoring environmental concerns because using older methods cost more than the new methods to implement. The definition of Green Technology goes a little further in implementing a solid strategy of environmental friendly ideas, methods, and materials including machines. These strategies include:

Sustainability – conserving our natural resources. HVAC is a constantly evolving industry and many manufacturers work to make their equipment more and more efficient. The research and development budget of many of the large HVAC manufacturers lead the way. This research is supplemented by the Department of Energy and other large industrial manufacturers related to HVAC. For example, ALCOA is a large producer of aluminum from raw materials and through recycling. ALCOA has sponsored research into better heat exchangers using aluminum materials. All these factors improve HVAC and contribute to sustainability in Green Technology.
