IS A MINI-RCX RIGHT FOR YOU?

If you have been interested in taking advantage of Retro-Commissioning but have not met the 150,000 sq.ft. requirement, consider taking part in the SEDAC Mini-RCx Pilot Program.

A Mini-RCx is for public sector buildings larger than 20,000 sq.ft. and includes a quick review of energy use profiles and an inspection of system scheduling. The main focus is on HVAC system scheduling and temperature set points.

Participants should be willing to provide building access, site personnel time, energy usage/interval data and be strongly interested in implementing recommendations.

Interested? Contact Todd Rusk (217) 333-8955 for details.
