Problem: Under-performing fans - fans that are not performing as rated - waste energy whenever they are operated, resulting in higher energy usage, carbon emissions, and energy bills. You can estimate these penalties using the Fan Energy Waste Calculator below. To run the calculator, select a country and slide the indicators for fan diameter, rating error, and annual operating hours.
Solution: One way to reduce energy waste is to specify AMCA-certified fans where possible. The AMCA Certified Ratings Program independently verifies that manufacturers' fan performance data are correctly calculated and presented based on ratings test results. Download the free AMCA white papers for detailed information about the AMCA Certified Ratings Program, how to correctly specify AMCA-certified fans, and how to ensure AMCA-certified fans are purchased when specified.
