HVAC Retrofits:
Energy Savings Made Easy

Herb Wendes, P.E.

Covering the entire process of retrofitting HVAC systems to achieve energy savings, this straightforward guide takes you step by step from the initial walk-through audit through the monitoring of results after the retrofit project is complete. You'll learn how to estimate labor and material costs for all types of HVAC equipment and systems. You'll find out how to convert constant volume systems to variable air volume, along with how to calculate the costs of doing so. Methods for calculating, analyzing and projecting energy consumption in terms of BTU and KW as well as in cost terms are detailed. Sample energy retrofit estimates are included, along with many time-saving reference lists.
