Variable Frequency Drives

Do more, use less energy. What’s that mean for you? More money in your pocket, happier customers, and a more environmentally friendly business. Variable frequency drives, also called VFD, are the most reliable electronic devices capable of controlling a three-phase electric motor speed.
SmartBT uses VFDs in our comprehensive building automation. As a result, customers realize a return on their investment in less than three years, and often less than one year.

Here’s how it works:

  • SmartBT uses VFDs to provide highly precise control of HVAC settings to eliminate wasted energy and frequent readjustments.
  • SmartBT uses soft-starting to reduce wear and tear on your equipment through VFDs.
  • SmartBT uses VFDs to save you money by lowering demand charges, reducing amps during motor starting, and less maintenance.
  • SmartBT makes tenants happier by using VFDs to reduce fan and duct noise.

Financial Incentives:

Best of all, many utility companies offer rebates when SmartBT installs or upgrades to variable frequency drives. VFDs are a major emphasis of the Environmental Protection Agency and they are a key component of smart design and energy efficiency.
