Common load reduction strategies include:

  •       Tightening your building covering and adding additional insulation to condense leakage.

  •       Installing energy-efficient windows such as ENERGY STAR qualified windows.

  •       Upgrading lighting systems. Energy-efficient lighting systems produce less heat into conditioned   space than older inefficient technology.

  •       Reducing solar gain in cooling conquered climates, and in cold climates taking steps to boost solar gain.

  •       Selecting proficient office tools and consumer electronics to reduce heat output.

  •       Controlling ventilation to improve tenant comfort and save energy.

Hope all these points will help you in reducing load in heating and cooling!!!!

Hi Aaren.

Check out the group below.  Some RCCs are very versatile and can be used on anything that can be painted.

Some applications are extremely good energy savers.
