Older commercial rooftop units (RTUs) can waste from $1,000 to $3,700 per unit annually, depending on the and building size and type, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
To encourage building owners to replace these inefficient units, RILA and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) teamed up with the DOE’s Better Buildings Alliance to launch the Advanced RTU Campaign (ARC).
Signing up for the campaign provides access to tools, expert assistance from DOE and National Laboratories, and up-to-date information on tax deductions and utility incentives for implementing energy-efficient measures and replacing older equipment. The campaign runs through November 2014.
