The client, a retail furniture chain with locations across the United States, observed that its Glendale, NY location had high utility costs and decided to conduct a partial renovation of its 43,500 square foot retail store. Cypress Energy acted on the client’s behalf to perform energy saving calculations and applied for and secured financial incentives offered by ConEdison, the power utility.

The client installed an energy management system (EMS) to control andmonitor its existing heating and cooling equipment. The client also installed one supply fan variable frequency drive (VFD) on each of the store’s nine rooftop units (RTUs), optimizing HVAC performance by enabling output based on load requirements. Several control strategies implemented include:

1. Optimal start/stop
2. Demand control/CO2 ventilation
3. Zone by zone scheduling
4. Unoccupied temperature setback
5. Outdoor air temperature heating and cooling lockout

Installing supply fan VFDs and an EMS allowed the client to realize greater automation and control of energy consumption with the ability to remotely schedule and monitor its HVAC system, providing significant energy savings and reduced utility costs.
