GreenBee Energy Efficiency provides early replacement or end of life replacements for HVAC units. In addition, we provide upgrades to older units to extend their lifespan and help to make them more energy efficient.
For example, adding variable speed drives to existing units to let them run more efficiently is something that we specialize in at GreenBee. Variable speed drives cycle your HVAC at a slower speed initially and then at a higher speed so that your peak demand doesn’t increase. If you turn everything on at once, you’re using a lot of energy and then billed for it. By adding variable speed drives, you’re letting us set the demand and requiring less power at one given moment, making your facility more efficient. Newer HVAC systems already have these built in, but we install them on older units if you would prefer to retrofit your system rather than install an entirely new unit.
We can provide the following efficiency upgrades:
- Replacing the compressor
- Adding condenser fan controls
- Adding demand-controlled ventilation
- Smart thermostats (the thermostat adjusts on its own)
- “The Nest” – this allows you to control your HVAC system from your phone. It also knows when you are not home versus when you are and adjusts accordingly.
