One of the most challenging issues facing laboratory owners and managers today is the pressing need to
reduce operating costs. The largest single driver of energy consumed in labs is ventilation which accounts for approximately 60% of total energy use. Our experience indicates that achievement of significant cost savings from energy reduction without sacrificing lab safety or indoor air quality requires a strategic, systematic approach. Some of the important steps in the process include:
- Determine Your Energy Baseline
- Assess Current Demand for Ventilation
- Evaluate Current Demand vs Design
- Implement Appropriate Operating Specifications
- Ensure Proper Operation of All System Components
- Implement LVMP to Maintain Efficient Operations
ECT combines these elements into a process called the Laboratory Ventilation Optimization Program (LVOP™). This detailed program will help you achieve maximum energy savings with assurance of maintaining safe and productive laboratories. The LVOP is applicable to any size or age of laboratory building. ECT provides a complete solution that produces quantifiable results and maximum return on your investment.
The LVOP™ can yield energy reductions of 15% or more with a 1-3 year payback on total implementation costs. After implementation, you will realize lower operating costs, safer labs and more dependable operation of your ventilation systems and components. We can help you meet your lab safety and energy management goals.
