Utility bills on the rise? If your cooling costs are out of control, and you need to correct the problem in order to ensure a positive financial bottom line, then you really must have your operating systems assessed.
In the previous blog post, we wrote about air duct sensors, which can give an accurate picture of how well an air handling system is operating. If the data points to a smoothly functioning air handler, but the utility bills are still an issue, then you may want to consider looking into the refrigerant system.
Cooling costs can be substantial during certain times of the year, particularly in the warmer climates of the country. Those expenses can put an extreme burden on your company’s financial stability. So, it is important to regain control of such systems before they cause a significant rise in utility bills.
A NoShok 100 series current output pressure transmitter, for instance, can allow you to gauge the efficiency of your refrigerant system. The sputtered thin film strain gauge technology means superior accuracy in the data provided by the transmitter. If your system has been costing more to operate, it could be a failure in the refrigeration system, and it may be necessary to install a new pressure transmitter. The NoShok 100 has a high repeatability rate, which means that it can do its job for many years to come, providing a clear indication of the operation within the refrigerant system.
With such a tool in place, you will be alerted when your refrigeration is under- or overcharged, if there are fouled coils within the system, or if there is a poorly operating compressor. Complications such as these can cause the power demands to rise, which means that your utility bills will increase as well.
This low cost technology, once installed, can save you a tremendous sum of money throughout its lifetime. It could very well point to the current problems that have your energy expense on the rise.
