Replacing an old, inefficient rooftop unit (RTU) with a new high efficiency unit? Hip hip hooray for energy efficiency! But wait a second – what’s going to happen to the old RTU? Do you know the right way to take care of the old refrigerant? Where are you going to send all the scrap metal? Disposing of RTUs can pose a significant financial and environmental liability if not handled correctly.
Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered whether you’re a building engineer, installer, or manufacturer. The Advanced RTU Campaign, a market transformation initiative that promotes high-efficiency RTUs across commercial buildings nationwide, is hosting a webinar on how to deal with RTUs at the end of life. The webinar will not only include ways to minimize environmental impacts while maximizing financial value of old RTUs, but will also discuss new regulations surrounding RTUs.
Join Michael Deru from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), along with Jason Benton and Josh Marler from AES Industries on September 12th from 11am-12pm ET (8am-9am PT), as they discuss how to be sustainable and economical about RTU disposal. Register here for the webinar, “Old RTUs – Turning a Liability into an Asset.”
