How to Know When You Need a New or Retrofitted Chiller or Cooling Tower

Most business owners and property managers are aware when their energy costs are going up or when their building is warmer than it should be, but may not be aware that it’s time to consider a new or retrofitted system. Fortunately, there are some telltale signs:

Twenty years ago, the average chiller had full-load efficiency ratings of 0.85 to 1.00 kW per ton. Today, centrifugal chillers carry ratings of about .50 kW per ton.
Load Changes
The constant evolution of technology has increased load outputs in airports, apartment complexes, and schools.
Chillers must be constantly maintained to achieve peak efficiency because they require more frequent repairs as they get older.
