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.
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.
