There is a misconception in the HVAC marketplace that needs to be addressed. Unfortunately, many people believe they only need variable speed when they have variable flow applications. This might be because the recently updated ASHRAE 90.1 2016 rules essentially do not require variable speed in constant flow applications. ASHRAE 90.1 is a minimum requirement, and if there are ways to save more energy than what is required as a “minimum”, we should absolutely be trying to save more energy than what is minimally required. Using variable speed in constant flow systems, the HVAC industry has an opportunity to save an average of 15 to 16% energy and sometimes over 50% and more.

Variable speed pumps in a recreation complex save a college thousands of dollars per year in energy costs.

by Brent Ross

Pumping systems consume a significant portion of global electrical energy, accounting for nearly 20 percent of the energy used by electric motors and 25 to 50 percent of the total electrical usage in certain industrial facilities.

Ironically, pumping systems are rarely included in energy-efficiency calculations, even though pumps present such energy-savings potential. One could argue that mentioning “motor” or “variable speed drive” (VSD) is sufficient because these components indicate the greatest energy-savings opportunity in a pumping system.
