According to the Carbon Trust, large UK businesses are paying out more than £1.6 billion too much on their energy bills every year because many are yet to seize the full opportunity to cut bills by around 15% through energy efficiency measures, savings which the Carbon Trust say are available through changes in behaviour and equipment and which represent highly attractive returns on investment.

The Carbon Trust also cites that for many businesses, a 20% cut in energy costs represents the same bottom line benefit as a 5% increase in sales.

Leading precision air conditioning, IT cooling, process and comfort cooling solutions manufacturer, Airedale International, has a simple solution that can contribute to overall energy savings. Replacing traditional AC fans with EC (Electronically Commutated) fans in precision air conditioning and cooling applications, could reduce power consumption by up to 70%.

EC fans are typically 50% more efficient than previous generation fans, and use variable speed control matched to load to eliminate unnecessary energy usage. Airedale’s controls improve energy efficiency still further by precisely matching speed to demand. The quiet, direct drive motors bring further business benefits by removing the need for belt replacement, maximising system uptime.

EC fans offer better control and represent the most effective solution for reducing cooling system energy consumption.  They are fully compatible with most systems, and units can be installed with minimal disruption.

Typical payback period is less than two years.

EC fan upgrades are just one of a number of energy-saving solutions available from the leading British manufacturer of chillers, precision air conditioning and IT cooling systems which builds energy efficiency into its entire range. Airedale International’s team of experts will be on hand at this year’s Energy Event which takes place at the NEC on 10 & 11 September 2013.  Airedale will be exhibiting on Stand No C46.
