About the Presentation:

Topic: Upgrading Existing Chilled Water Systems

Existing chilled water systems provide the capability to cool buildings efficiently. Yet there are often ways that these existing systems can be upgraded and improved to increase efficiency, better serve building occupants and use existing infrastructure to keep projects cost effective. This presentation:

  • Discusses chiller retrofits and replacement,
  • Explores different design parameters (flow rates and temperatures) and the opportunities they offer existing systems,
  • Examines use of variable flow in existing systems, and
  • Considers controls to optimize and reduce system energy use.
