Summer heat may have come to an end (in some areas), but air conditioning systems are a necessary need year round for a number of industrial and commercial applications. Unlike the air conditioning unit you’d find at your home, large office building and industrial plants require a much larger scale A/C machine. In many cases, these air circulation and conditioning machines function with heavy duty chillers or cooling towers, and that requires extra care and monitoring to keep them running in good condition.
Despite all the low energy lightbulbs and high efficiency appliances, demand for electricity is projected to increase over the next 25 years. More air conditioners will be installed in southern states to meet the needs of the growing population and more power will be needed for factories, shops and warehouses. The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) predicts that between 2014 and 2040 residential electricity usage will grow 21%, commercial use by 27% and industrial use by 30%.
