Cost and Energy Savings: Case Studies in Commercial HVAC and Refrigeration

In our case studies, we consistently identify two key factors: maintenance and equipment replacement. These elements are crucial, particularly for energy savings, which translate into significant financial benefits. Our ongoing energy analyses reveal savings ranging from $14,000 to $56,000 over a ten-year period, with an average of $32,000 in savings from new equipment installations. Neglecting proper maintenance or using outdated equipment essentially results in financial loss.

For example, our tests on HVAC units demonstrate the impact of maintenance on energy consumption. We compared a freshly cleaned unit against scenarios where the condensing unit was blocked by 25%, 50%, and 100%, simulating the effect of dirt accumulation. The energy consumption of a single motor increased from 1,332 watts in a clean state to 1,837 watts when 100% blocked, leading to an additional cost of $544 per year based on an electricity rate of $0.147 per kilowatt. Over ten years, this equates to $6,528 in extra energy costs for just one small motor.

I run a restaurant, bakery and deli. We have 3 large walk in refrigerators, 2 freezers and about 10 other refrigerated units. It’s a big operation and I have used several companies over the years. I came across American Cool Heat & commercial refrigeration about 4 years ago. They are the most thorough and honest company I have worked with in 19 years of operation. I love that they warranty their work and explain everything to me. The owner, William, had me go on the roof with him to check out our refrigeration rack and explain each part, I made videos for reference. Our equipment was out dated and needed to be serviced. He showed me several areas where poor work had been done by other companies. His techs are friendly, efficient and professionally trained, I never have to guess or ask questions, they always clearly explain everything to me and give me some options depending on the job. They are replacing a defrost timer and condensing fan in my walk in freezer today. Whenever I call for service, they come the same day- even emergencies on weekends. Can’t say enough good things about this company. Ask for William!

We have a large business in Palm Springs. William and his team came highly recommended. From day one, they did the impossible. This includes rebuilding a 20-ton HVAC unit on our roof that was written off by other companies. Competitors wanted to remove it which included a crane, insurances, and of course the replacement cost. William, Frank, and the team assessed the unit, and gave us a 90% success rate on a repair vs. a replacement. They succeeded. From then on, they’ve handled all or our equipment… on time, up front, and always professional.

Their technicians were very courteous, respectful and were sensitive to the needs of my 91-year old mother, who is on a fixed income.They arrived promptly, worked for hours and hours on our AC in the heat. I appreciate their honesty and willingness to go the extra mile. What’s even nicer is they always say, “God bless you.” before they hang up the phone.

Everything About Commercial HVAC & Refrigeration

Every HVAC system and situation is unique. Some places can go for several months without any issues, while others need more frequent attention. It really depends on factors like the type of system you have, how old it is, how much you use it, and the environment it’s in. The best thing to do is to chat with one of our friendly technicians. They’ll be able to take a look at your setup, understand your needs, and recommend a maintenance schedule that’s just right for you.
There are a few telltale signs to watch out for. If you’re noticing extended run time, higher energy bills, not operating as when it was new, hearing strange noises or feeling vibrations, catching unusual smells, finding that your circuit breaker keeps tripping, or having to constantly “top off” your refrigerant, these could all be indicators that your HVAC system needs some attention, repair or replacement
Absolutely! We’ve got your back around the clock. Whether it’s after hours, on weekends, or even during holidays, you can count on us for emergency repair services. Just keep in mind that emergency repairs do come with a slightly higher rate, but we’ll be there to get your HVAC system back up and running whenever you need us.
There are several ways to boost the energy efficiency of your HVAC setup. First off, keeping your system clean is key. A dirty system has to work harder to keep things running smoothly, so routine maintenance is a must, plus you can reduce the costs of your electric bill. Consider upgrading from old analog controls to new electronic ones for better control and efficiency. Sometimes, tweaking the system’s configuration can also make a big difference. And if your equipment is on the older side, it might be worth considering new, energy-efficient options. Newer systems often come with larger coils for better heat transfer and variable speed technology that allows the system to adjust its output as needed, saving energy in the process. It’s all about finding the right balance for your space and needs!
When you’re in the market for a new commercial HVAC system, there are several key factors to take into account. Start by assessing the specific heating and cooling needs of your space, ensuring that the system you choose is appropriately sized and equipped to handle your building’s demands, but not sizing units too big. Energy efficiency is another crucial consideration, as opting for a system with high-efficiency features can lead to significant long-term cost savings. Additionally, look for systems that offer advanced features like zoning capabilities or smart controls to enhance comfort and convenience. It’s also important to evaluate the reputation and reliability of the manufacturer, as well as the level of support and service available post-installation.

1st Example of past Commercial HVAC project is the replacement of a 8 ton water source heat pump unit that was used to control ventilation, humidity and temperature for a Variable Frequency Drive system, we did our load calculations and determined that the old way of calculating HVAC equipment is completely obsolete, after running our Load Calculations we determined that a 4 Ton system was all that was required, with variable controls, we were able to save over 60% energy usage every month, every year, that’s a big giant chunk of money saved on that 1 system.

2nd example, where all companies tried repairing a commercial 15 ton A/C system we came in with full diagnosis and determined an easily overlooked part had internally failed, a simple part was costing our new client over ten thousand in repairs by other various companies, we proposed repairs & got them back up in running very fast.

3rd Example, we came in as a second opinion, A 4 compressor rack system that was condemned by another company, we took our time to do a through diagnostics on every single compressor and refrigeration system that powered, 1 walk in cooler, 1 walk in freezer, 1 sushi display case & 1 drawer rail system, we proposed repairs on compressors, cabinets and added modern controls, got them up and running for a fraction of the cost, plus they get to save on energy consumption.

4th example, an outdated meat market was in dire need of old controls for their meat display as many sections of the entire system were failing. We proposed modern controls and valves per section, and the client opted for repairs, got them back up in sections, in 1 day without losing thousands in product.

We have Standardized Operating Procedures in place, check off list & keep up with changing regulations, that ensures a uniform process without install and repairs.
Commercial HVAC is more than just keeping your space cozy or cool. It’s about creating a comfortable and safe environment for everyone who walks through your doors. Sure, we handle the heating and air conditioning of your occupied spaces, but there’s a lot more to it than that. We are talking about improving air quality by bringing in fresh outdoor air to swap out with the stale air inside. We deal with ductwork to ensure air flows smoothly throughout your building and maintain proper building pressure to keep things running smoothly. Basically, we’re here to make sure your workspace is as comfortable, safe, and healthy as can be.
Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this one. It really depends on your specific situation. Some buildings might need more frequent filter changes than others, depending on factors like occupancy, whether there are pets in the area, air quality, and system usage. The best approach is to keep an eye on the cleanliness of your filters and replace them as needed. Regular checks will give you the best idea of when it’s time for a change.
We’re not legal experts here, but typically, the responsibility for the HVAC system is outlined in the lease agreement. If you’re unsure or have concerns about who’s on the hook for what, it’s always a good idea to consult legal advice with one who specializes in commercial lease agreements. They’ll be able to give you the guidance you need
Commercial HVAC systems can have varying lifespans depending on factors such as maintenance, usage, and the quality of the equipment. While some systems may last for decades with proper care, others may require replacement sooner due to wear and tear. Regular maintenance and inspections can help extend the lifespan of your system by addressing issues before they become major problems.
Commercial HVAC system costs can vary widely depending on factors such as the size of the building, the complexity of the system, and the specific requirements of the space. Additionally, factors like inflation and the availability of parts can also play a role in pricing. To get an accurate estimate, it’s best to consult with us, A Commercial HVAC contractor who can assess your needs and provide a customized quote based on your unique situation. We will be able to take into account all the necessary factors to give you a clear picture of what to expect in terms of cost after an assessment is completed.
