About Efficiency Technologies, Inc.

Chillers are the single largest energy consumer in most facilities and can use up to 40% of a facility's electrical usage. Chillers can waste up to 30% in additional energy through inefficiency. A 15% chiller energy savings could equal a 6% reduction of the energy bill. EffTrack collects accurate hourly chiller operating data, performs complex engineering analysis and trends chiller performance. It diagnoses the causes of inefficiencies, notifies plant operators and facility managers when problems occur and recommends corrective actions. By following the recommendations for improvements, the facility can significantly lower the chiller and plant energy consumption. These savings are identified and measured in the EffTrack reports, which can be accessed from any computer with Internet access. EffTec is an ENERGY STAR Partner and a U.S. Green Building Council Member.
