As energy costs continue to rise, having an energy efficient cooling system in place is key. But, the high cost of a new unit can be prohibitive, and replacing a chiller for commercial or industrial facility often is done out of absolute necessity. Upgrading your existing equipment is an affordable alternative to extend the life cycle of your chiller while improving performance and reliability.
Oklahoma Chiller offers retrofit solutions that can enhance comfort and improve indoor air quality while saving you money on energy costs and repairs. We can help you determine the point at which it no longer makes sense to keep throwing money at a failing piece of equipment and find the most cost-effective plan to upgrade your system. We will do a comprehensive analysis of the cooling capacity you need and customize the solution to your building, rather than implement a costly off-the-shelf package that may be more than what is required. And, because we work with all major manufacturers, we can shop for the best price on replacement parts and upgraded equipment without ever compromising quality.
Chiller energy consumption is driven both by the load and by the temperature of the water entering the condenser. Reducing either the load or water temperature saves energy. In many cases, simply upgrading the motor control from constant to variable speed using a variable frequency drive (VFD) can result in significant cost savings. The VFD system adjusts to changing load characteristics or lower condenser water temperatures by varying the speed of the chiller compressor motor, which can cut electrical energy use by as much as 30 percent. Of course, every scenario is different, and a chiller motor compressor VFD retrofit may not be the optimal solution for your facility. Our experienced technicians will work with you to explore all of the options, and find the most cost-effective and efficient upgrade options to meet your needs and your budget.
