Overview

With a new rooftop heating and cooling unit you’ll spend less time managing building comfort and more time managing your business. New technology and high-efficiency equipment will lower your energy costs and improve indoor air quality.

A rooftop unit (RTU) combines heating, ventilating, and air conditioning in one, and are typically installed on the roof of a building. They can vary in size, ranging from 3 to 40 tons, or larger. Their typical useful life is 15 to 20 years, though RTUs older than 10 years can be inefficient and waste money in energy.1 The most efficient RTUs can be up to 50% more efficient than those available 10 years ago, and these energy savings originate from a variety of new features, including:1

  • Variable- or multi-speed fan control
  • Integrated economizer control
  • Demand-controlled ventilation
  • Advanced thermostat control
  • Remote monitoring and communication
  • Demand management

By replacing or upgrading your RTU, you could increase energy efficiency to help save on energy costs, improve comfort for employees and customers, and reduce your impact on the environment.
