Trane Presents Energy Economy Strategies in HVAC Applications at IMCAM Conference in Tel Aviv, Israel - IMCAM Conference will be held during Aclima, the 22nd International Exhibition for Air Conditioning, Refrigeration, Heating and Ventilation

Brussels, Belgium, 28 October, 2013 – Whether it is industrial manufacturing, healthcare facilities, data centers or commercial buildings, the design of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems has a direct impact on the energy and operational efficiency and total lifecycle cost of building operations.

Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, asserts that improving the energy economy of buildings is a task that ideally should begin at the design stage. Heat recovery is one of the core solutions that improve a buildings’ energy economy and generates both capital and operational savings while reducing environmental impact.

At the IMCAM conference in Tel Aviv, Israel, on October 30, Rafael Berzosa, chiller portfolio manager for Trane in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, will discuss the benefits of heat recovery from HVAC systems and the influence of heat recovery on the building’s economy and operational efficiency. The session will explain solutions that enable heat recovery from industrial processes, air-side and water-side cooling systems, air distribution systems and chilled water systems and guide the attendees through the technical side of the process.

“This presentation will address where heat is generated by an HVAC system or the equipment, show how to recover heat from the system and point out the benefits of the technology,” said Berzosa. “Attendees will also learn how unintentionally created, and otherwise wasted, heat can be recovered and utilized, allowing building managers to realize energy and cost savings, as well as environmental goals.”
