Commercial Rooftop Units in MN: Characteristics and Energy Performance

Rooftop Units are used in more than one third of U.S. commercial buildings, the highest of any cooling equipment type. Why? They are reliable and have a low capital cost, as well as established service and distribution networks. There is anecdotal evidence, however, that these systems operate inefficiently. To validate or refute this evidence, we’re conducted a multi-level field study sponsored by Minnesota Department of Commerce, Division of Energy Resources. 

This webinar summarizes what researchers found.
