    Energy Efficiency

    Airside Economizers Use "Free" Air To Cool Data Centers and Reduce Energy Costs

    Today's data centers not only require protection from the elements, but also need to save energy, as estimates indicate they consume about 1.5 percent of all power used in the U.S. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), data centers are one of the largest and fastest growing consumers of electricity in the country. In 2013, three million computer rooms in the U.S. used enough electricity to match the annual output of 34 large coal-fired power plants, and those statistics are expected to increase. Annual consumption is projected to increase by roughly 47 billion kilowatt-hours by 2020. As a result, the NRDC recommends the data center industry adopt best-practice efficiency behaviors as demand increases to unprecedented levels.

    Superheat and Subcooled Levels for Water Source Heat Pumps

    This paper evaluates and analyzes the superheat and subcooled levels for water source heat pumps. As per the non-ideal refrigeration cycle, each cycle has a certain amount of superheat in the suction line and a certain amount of subcooled liquid in the liquid line. By evaluating the level of measured superheat and subcooled levels for a known correctly charged system, we can document and publish the results for internal and external use. By connecting temperature gauges to the suction and liquid lines of a system, the superheat and subcooled levels of the system can be found relatively quickly. Charge can be declared to be correct if the values of the superheat and subcooled levels match those of the lab tested values.

    Product Application Guide: Actuators for Commercial HVAC Dampers

    The purpose of any damper actuator is to control the position of a damper within an HVAC system. This seems straight forward, however, the number of actuator types, functions, and control methods available adds a level of confusion for designers and installers. This article will assist in clarifying the common properties and terms used in the description and selection of commercial damper actuators.
