HVAC accounts for 52% of energy use within the Northwest’s 3.4 billion square feet of commercial building space. For these buildings, outdated and inefficient HVAC systems not only waste energy and inflate operating costs, but they can also cause thermal discomfort, aid the spread of airborne illnesses, and increase occupant turnover rates. Using data from Northwest-based case studies, this session will detail high-efficiency HVAC solutions that provide improved comfort, healthier and safer indoor air, and significant energy savings to improve your building’s value. Whether you’re looking to replace your existing rooftop unit or exploring a deeper retrofit, we’ll help you identify and understand various approaches that ensure your HVAC system is working smarter and not harder, including through high-efficiency features and modern ventilation strategies.
