Game Changing Technology: Transformative Wave’s Catalyst Roof Top RTU Energy Solution

Catalyst RTU Solution by Transformative WaveMore Than A VFD, Transformative Wave’s CATALYST Verified as Powerful New Way to Save Energy with Rooftop HVAC Units.

Most commercial buildings are cooled by packaged rooftop units (RTUs), but RTUs have a problem: Their fans run at full power, even when cooling demands are low. A few years ago, retrofit kits – like Catalyst – hit the market. These kits enabled building operators to upgrade their existing single-zone RTUs to variable-air-volume operation with claimed HVAC savings of 25 to 50 percent.

Originally, these claims were greeted with much skepticism, but independent tests keep bearing out vendor assertions. In 2013, US Dept. of Energy’s Advanced Rooftop Control (ARC) Retrofit: Field-Test Results (PDF) verified savings and demonstrated that these products- especially Transformative Wave’s Catalyst – are ready for prime time.
