Minimize HVAC energy consumption with simulation software

Optimize efficiency and avoid a climate crisis

HVAC requires an enormous amount of energy to maintain the comfort of our human-built habitats. Its usage, however, is an environmentally destructive cycle. Air conditioning generates extra CO2, increasing global warming, which increases consumer demand for more air-conditioned environments.

How can those in the HVAC industry slow the cycle down while still accounting for cost, quality, and time?

Understanding a problem is the first step to fixing it, and simulation is a vital tool for effectively slowing and/or stopping HVAC-related climate change while also remaining competitive.

Download this white paper and learn how simulation minimizes the number of required physical prototypes, expedites development, and cuts costs.

HVAC simulation software reduces climate-changing CO2 emissions

As the need for renewable energy sources increase, new technologies and processes will concurrently need to evolve using competitive, business savvy methods. Advancements will require the use of simulation software to match the appropriate system to a particular set of requirements and account for any costly, unforeseen errors.

Using a digital twin for simulation purposes will:

  • Identify potential energy wasters

  • Determine how one changed component will affect the entire system

  • Discover answers to unforeseen issues before they arise

  • Define and scale the HVAC system to the need and location

Where HVAC energy consumption is highest

Since the invention of the air conditioner more than a century ago, its basic operating mechanism has undergone relatively little alteration. Change can be difficult. Improving a component’s energy usage in one area negatively affects the energy usage in another.

Externally, products and processes that use electricity are not emission-free since they depend on a mixed power system to supply energy.

Internally, the operating fluid, or refrigerant, utilized in air conditioners contains hazardous elements. As HVAC equipment ages, micro-cracks and inadequate sealing between components allow greenhouse gases to escape.

Data centers are responsible for around 1% of the planet’s utilization of electricity. Some electricity goes into powering the computers themselves. The remainder is used to keep the surrounding environment cool.

We need improved energy transfer, more effective cooling, visuals into thermal movement, and system-level optimization.
