Investment in COOLNOMIX® provides many different benefits to multiple stakeholders:
HVAC Engineers and Designers
Energy Efficiency Consultants / Energy Auditors
Utility Program Managers
Thermal Stability: According to a 2018 CareerBuilder Survey, nearly half of 1,012 full-time, private-sector American workers say their office is either too hot or too cold. Several scientific studies show significant productivity and cognitive ability gains among employees when they are in comfortable environments with superior indoor air quality. COOLNOMIX maintains and sometimes improves indoor comfort as a result of improved thermal stability. For refrigeration, improved thermal stability ensures product remains at the optimal quality.
Maintenance & Operations: Because COOLNOMIX® optimizes cooling run-times, it prolongs the life of the HVAC system and reduces the amount of maintenance required. Additionally, because COOLNOMIX® reduces the amount of occupant complaints about temperature swings, facility manager have more time to focus on value-added activities such as preventative maintenance.
Environmental: Increased efficiency using COOLNOMIX® reduces energy waste and therefore lowers power plant greenhouse gas emissions and criteria pollutants. As cooling can represent a large portion of a building’s energy use, COOLNOMIX® can drastically reduce a business’s contribution to climate change and local health issues.
Economic: Implementing COOLNOMIX® can significantly reduce your utility bills. COOLNOMIX® simple payback period is typically less than 2 years but can be more rapid depending on electricity rate, climate, and use case. COOLNOMIX® offers a great return on your investment as savings add up over the service life of the product (minimum of 10 years). Furthermore, the return you pocket through savings will only increase over time as energy prices continue to rise in the United States. Improving energy efficiency using COOLNOMIX® is less expensive than investing in replacement cooling systems as well as new generation and transmission for utilities. Since COOLNOMIX® extends the life of the cooling system, the purchase of a replacement cooling system may be delayed.
Utility System Benefits: When integrated into energy resource plans, COOLNOMIX® can provide long-term benefits by lowering base load and peak demand and reducing the need for additional generation and transmission assets.
Risk Management: COOLNOMIX® also diversifies utility resource portfolios and can be a hedge against uncertainty associated with fluctuating fuel prices and other risk factors.
