Retrocommissioning's Greatest Hits
MetadataShow full item record
It is possible to save thousands of dollars in energy costs through a few low-cost operational adjustments but those opportunities are often hidden. Retrocommissioning is a systematic investigation process for improving and optimizing the operation and maintenance of buildings. Although owners' priorities for RCX projects may vary, it typically focuses on energy-using equipment such as lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, and the related controls. This paper highlights key findings from several of PECI's retrocommissioning projects that have produced significant benefits for low costs. The RCX measures are described along with the estimated savings, simple paybacks, and related benefits.
