Overview of the Advanced RTU Campaign with the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance Audience | Alliance to Save Energy

Older, inefficient commercial HVAC rooftop unit (RTU) air conditioning systems are common and can significantly waste a building’s energy costs. By replacing or retrofitting them, you can save money, improve your energy efficiency, make your building more comfortable, and help the environment. 

The Advanced RTU Campaign (ARC) encourages commercial building owners and operators to replace their old RTUs with more efficient units or to retrofit their RTUs with advanced controls in order to take advantage of these benefits. The Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) is a Supporter of the campaign, in collaboration with the lead organizers, ASHRAE, the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Better Buildings Alliance. 

This webinar provides an introduction to the Advanced RTU Campaign and a review of tools available to evaluate and implement high efficiency RTU technology. We will provide information on the energy and cost savings potential, benefits of joining the Campaign, how to join, and the myriad technical resources available for RTU evaluation and improvement. 

The webinar also feature information on programs and incentives available to businesses in the Midwest to help them make these RTU investments in their buildings, and a case study example from Focus on Energy, another ARC Supporter, of a Midwestern company’s addition of DCV while upgrading BAS systems and replacing RTUs with high-efficiency units. 

Target Audience: Contractors, building owners and operators, property managers, facility engineers
