Rooftop units (RTUs) are used in over 60% of all commercial building floor space to optimize cooling, heating, and ventilation and found on most NYC low-rise buildings like, schools, stores, hospitals and restaurants.
RTUs are capable of handling anywhere from 1.5 tons to 162 tons in the volume of supply air. Thus, even a small improvement in rated efficiency of these units can lead to significant reductions of energy use and carbon emissions.
On July 10th, 2018, The Department of Energy’s Advanced RTU Campaign and PaceControls presented on the trends and drivers of RTU efficiency for commercial buildings in New York City. We discovered what are the latest resources, tools and technologies in replacing or retrofitting RTUs, plus making a compelling business case with the robust RTU incentives from Con Edison.
