Cooling tower selection software from Baltimore Aircoil Co., Jessup, Md., was improved to help users evaluate energy-saving solutions for cooling towers.

The upgraded functionality includes:

• User-defined lifecycle cost inputs.
• Highlighted lowest-first-cost cooling tower selections.
• Up to two recommended energy-saving alternative selections.
• Payback calculations with the period based on fan energy savings and energy rating per ASHRAE 90.1.

In addition to reducing fan energy costs, alternative energy saving provides environmental and operational benefits such as reduced carbon footprint, reduced sound levels, reduced electrical switchgear costs, increased mechanical component life, and LEED energy points. For more information on the software or BAC’s energy-saving solutions, request access to the product selection software at or via your local manufacturer’s representative.
