Variable Frequency Drives
Variable frequency drives, also known as "Freq Drives" or "VFD's," are widely used on all kinds of process equipment as well as HVAC equipment. LaPine Mechanical Service has extensive experience installing, replacing, configuring, and troubleshooting these devices. From an HVAC standpoint, VFD's are very useful in modulating pumps, air handlers, exhaust blowers, condenser fan motors, and even compressors to accommodate load and performance requirements of HVAC equipment. This saves substantial amounts of money by enabling the piece of equipment to only run at the speed or capacity that is necessary, as opposed to running at 100% whenever it turns on. VFD's are also easily interfaced into DDC control systems and can also be installed as stand-alone devices with individual controllers. If you'd like to learn about how much money there is to be saved by installing VFD's at your business, call LaPine today for a free consultation and check out our Energy Evaluation section.
One of the more energy efficient methods of zone controlled air conditioning and heating, VAV systems utilize a large central air handler to deliver cold air at a regulated static pressure to individual damper boxes with reheat coils to supply individual zones with as much cold or warm air as is needed. Variable frequency drives, proportional damper controls, proportional hot water valve actuators, boilers and A/C equipment are often monitored by a sophisticated control system. LaPine Mechanical Service has extensive experience designing, installing, maintaining, and servicing VAV systems and their mechanical components.
