Belimo Highlights at 2020 AHR Expo
AHR Expo in Orlando, Florida, was a huge success. It attracted over 80,000 industry professionals from around the globe. The show provided a unique forum for manufacturers of all sizes to share ideas and to display future HVACR technology solutions. Belimo had a special celebration at the booth with its 100 millionth actuator hand-off to Darryl Boyce, President of ASHRAE. The celebration was a monumental moment, and was shared with many customers and associates.
The Belimo booth this year illustrated how our small devices make a big impact on HVAC systems. At Belimo, we continually drive ongoing improvements related to Comfort, Energy Efficiency, Safety, Installation, and Maintenance. CESIM is the Belimo method to innovate building technology with sensors, valves, and actuators. . It’s the way we provide value for our customers.
Our new booth design helped to educate the value of adequately sized products in Air Handling Units and Hydronic Systems. Overdesigning and oversizing HVAC systems directly results in higher operating costs and a higher carbon footprint. Soon, an emphasis on total building performance and energy code compliance will be the mandate for the industry.
Highly efficient HVAC systems provide superior comfort and reduced energy with lower maintenance costs. Hydronic system problems are revealed when building occupants report comfort issues or facilities see an increase in energy usage. Typical indicators are when a space is too hot in one area, and too cold in another, causing low delta T with higher than expected energy costs, along with difficult initial startups.
