Design efficient chilled water systems
Energy use is the single largest operating expense in commercial office buildings, representing approximately one-third of a typical operating budget. On average, 30-40%* of energy in a commercial building is consumed by HVAC systems. By becoming more energy efficient in HVAC, commercial buildings can reduce operating expenses, increase property asset value, and enhance the comfort of their tenants. Deep dive for more information about variable primary flow systems increasing energy savings and end user comfort.
Air-conditioning solutions for commercial buildings
Pumps are at the heart of air-conditioning for commercial buildings and accurately controlled circulation is the key to user comfort and the efficiency of the entire system. Our controllers and integrated frequency converters deliver system intelligence to maximise the efficiency of your air-conditioning system while minimising life-cycle costs.
Because pumps affect the performance of other components in a circulation system, it is crucial to focus on pump selection when designing or maintaining your commercial air-conditioning installation. With a Grundfos solution, you will get pumps and pump systems that deliver maximum efficiency with minimum energy consumption.
Distributed pumping is a paradigm shift in the optimisation of chilled water systems in commercial buildings, where centralised pumps and energy-consuming balancing and control valves are replaced with intelligent pumps placed on each floor of the building.
How to save up to 80% pump energy
Sligo University Hospital retrofitted its heating system with new boilers and intelligent pumps from Grundfos. With remote monitoring and control and built-in intelligence that adapts the pumps’ output to the actual heating system pressure, the hospital is saving up to 80% on energy on the new pumps.

Dubai buildings unlock up to 80% pump energy savings with simple pump swaps
A Dubai building owner is saving 50-80% electricity from the pumps in its air-conditioning systems. With a retrofit, the customer got new, state-of-the-art pump equipment and is providing a better environment to residents. The project is in line with Dubai’s goal of saving 30% of its pump energy by retrofitting 30,000 buildings by 2030.
