Program Aims To Boost Rooftop Unit Efficiency
To increase the energy efficiency of rooftop unit (RYU) air conditioners, the U.S. Department of Energy has created the Advanced RTU Campaign, a national initiative co-organized by ASHRAE and the Retail Industry Leaders Association. By promoting RTU efficiency via high-efficiency replacements, advanced controls retrofits, and quality maintenance and installation practices, the campaign has impacted over 40,000 RTUs to date. Replacing or retrofitting inefficient RTUs can result in increased energy cost savings, improved efficiency and occupant comfort, and it can reduce a building’s adverse impact on the environment.
