Smart circulators drive down energy costs

The amount of energy consumed by the building sector has grown dramatically over the past 50 years.

The amount of energy consumed by the building sector has grown dramatically over the past 50 years — from 25% of U.S. annual electricity consumption in the 1950s to more than 76% in 2012, according to www.Energy.gov.

Because heating, ventilation and air conditioning consume the largest amount of energy in buildings, it’s critical for consulting-specifying engineers and contractors to select and install smart, efficient pumps to reduce the amount of energy needed to meet occupant heating and cooling needs.
