Is it time to upgrade your commercial air conditioner to an Advanced Rooftop Unit (RTU)? RTUs are used in nearly half of all cooling conditioned commercial floor space in the United States. RTUs built according to the Department of Energy's High Performance Rooftop Unit Specification are expected to reduce energy use by as much as 50% compared to the current ASHRAE 90.1 standard, depending on location and facility type. This webinar will explore the components that make up a standard RTU, provide case studies on how they really perform, and list some pros and cons to upgrading.

Course Objectives
  • Describe how RTUs significantly reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • List the components of an RTU that contribute to a building with clean, properly humidified air.
  • Identify practices that can be implemented to promote occupant comfort and indoor air quality.
  • Determine the best time to upgrade your RTU, reducing the carbon pollution that drives dangerous climate change and other pollution that harms occupant health.
