New research on rooftop units (RTUs) is now available from the California Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) program. Unitary RTUs are responsible for cooling at least half the floor space in commercial buildings in the U.S., yet their actual energy performance is below what it could or should be with today’s technologies.
This presentation covers updates in two key areas of heating and cooling performance improvement in the light commercial buildings sector: (1) advanced controls and (2) performance monitoring, including fault detection and diagnostics (FDD).
The two presenters were Mark Cherniack of New Buildings Institute and Kristin Heinemeier of Western Cooling Efficiency Center at UC Davis.
