1.1.2 Seal air leaks located in all cavities

1.1.2 Seal air leaks located in all cavities present in the building Description Air leaks can be located in all cavities present in the building. It is not simple to find all points of air infiltration, which are not limited to doors or windows, so sometimes it can be necessary to carry [...]

2.2.20 Installation of modulating burners and oxygen sensors

2.2.20 Installation of modulating burners and oxygen sensors Description The modulating burners regulate boiler heat output in proportion to demand at any time, reducing the number of turning on and off with respect to conventional burners, achieving greater efficiency in the generation of heat. This measure consists in the substitution or adaptation, [...]

2.2.22 Convert the constant volume system to a Variable Air Volume (VAV) system

2.2.22 Convert the constant volume system to a Variable Air Volume (VAV) system Description In tertiary buildings a CAV (Constant Air Volume) system is normally used for ventilation and air-conditioning. In order to keep the room temperature in required level during the summer period quite high airflow rates and higher amounts of [...]

2.2.24 Convert the primary/secondary chilled water plant to variable flow primary

2.2.24 Convert the primary/secondary chilled water plant to variable flow primary Description Evaluate the opportunity to remove the primary chilled water pumps, and use the secondary pump (which can be resized as needed) as the variable flow primary pump with a modified control sequence. Benefits Less space [...]

2.4.1 Installation of program warm-start ballast

2.4.1 Installation of program warm-start ballast Description Program warm-start ballasts incorporate a precise starting sequence to turn on a lamp while minimizing lamp filament wear. Benefits These ballasts enable lamps to last about 100,000 switching cycles, whereas instant-start ballasts enable lamps to last only 10,000-15,000 switching cycles Programed warm-start [...]

2.4.2 Installation of electronic ballast

2.4.2 Installation of electronic ballast Description Electrical ballast is a device whose aim is limiting the amount of current that passes through a discharge lamp during the start-up. First, they provide the necessary voltage to start up the lamp and after that they limit the current. Lamps that use ballast are halogen lamps, [...]

2.4.3 Replacement of conventional halogen lamps by Infrared Reflective Coating (IRC) halogen lamps

2.4.3 Replacement of conventional halogen lamps by Infrared Reflective Coating (IRC) halogen lamps Description The innovative IRC technology increases the efficiency of halogen lamps by reflecting a major part of the generated useless IR radiation back to the coil where it is converted into visible light. The infrared reflective coating at the outside [...]

2.4.4 Replacement of incandescent lamps by Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs)

2.4.4 Replacement of incandescent lamps by Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) Description In a CFL, an electric current is driven through a tube containing argon and a small amount of mercury vapor. This generates invisible ultraviolet light that excites a fluorescent coating (called phosphor) on the inside of the tube, which then emits visible [...]

2.4.5 Installation of Lighting Emitting Diode (LED) lamps

2.4.5 Installation of Lighting Emitting Diode (LED) lamps Description Light in an LED is emitted by a solid, rather than a gas object as it is the case of the fluorescent tubes. The LED is a semiconductor diode that emits light when it is crossed by an electric current. Wavelength of the [...]

2.4.6 Replacement of fluorescent tubes by others with less diameter

2.4.6 Replacement of fluorescent tubes by others with less diameter Description The most commonly used fluorescent lamps today are the T8 (ø 26 mm). However, the T5, (ø 16 mm) which only work with auxiliary electronic equipment, have been developed. This, along with its minor diameter provides a high luminous efficiency, which can [...]
