LEED® Certification :- Scoring Points How ClimateMasters EarthPure R-410A heat pumps fit into the LEED program
What is LEED? LEED = L eadership in E nergy and E nvironmental D esign –Developed by USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) in conjunction with DOE EPA GSA (U.S. General Services Administration) Air Force, Army, Navy States of CA, CT, IL, ME, MD, MA, MI, NJ, NY, OR, PA
Why LEED? Annual Building consumption –30% of the total energy –60% of the electricity –5 billion gallons of potable water used to flush toilets every day Sustainable Design Responsibility towards our environment
Goals and Benefits The goals of the LEED program include –Reduced or neutralized first costs –Enhanced asset value/increased profits –Optimized life cycle economic performance Economic benefits include –Improved productivity –Reduced liability
Why Does It Matter? Some states and cities offer tax incentives for buildings that meet green building codes or become LEED certified. GSA new building projects must meet LEED certification requirements New York was the first state to implement a green building tax program –Up to $3.75 per square foot for interior work and –Up to $7.50 per square foot for exterior work against their state tax bill
Why Does It Matter? Cook County, IL requires new county facilities to meet LEED Silver certification Maryland has implemented a green building tax credit and requires state buildings to meet LEED standards Portland created a tailored version of LEED for city funded buildings Seattle sets a LEED Silver level rating for city funded projects
Why Does It Matter? Case Studies Energy efficiency measures in a Denver dry goods building --- Reduced Operating expenses - $75000 Students in day-lit schools in North Carolina consistently score higher in tests compared to students in schools using conventional fixtures Productivity gains of workers by a US Survey - 16% Grocery store- Spokane, Washington, Waste management costs - 56%
LEED Certifications LEED-NC (new construction – commercial) –Complete and has been in use for four years LEED-CI (commercial interiors) LEED-EB (existing buildings) LEED-CS (core and shell – commercial) LEED-H (single family residential)-PILOT LEED-ND (residential neighborhood) In development
LEED-NC Seven prerequisites... –Sediment and erosion control –Minimum energy performance (ASHRAE 90.1) –Fundamental commissioning –CFC reduction –Storage of recyclable –Minimum IAQ performance (ASHRAE 62) –Environmental tobacco smoke control
LEED-NC Five basic categories for design points … –Sustainable sites - 14 –Water efficiency - 5 –Energy and atmosphere* - 17 –Materials and resources - 13 –Indoor environmental quality* 15 *ClimateMaster Solutions are applicable Subtotal NOTE: 1/2 of the points are EA or IEQ 64 Points
LEED-NC Additional points … –Subtotal (previous page) –Design and process innovation –LEED accredited professional* 64 points 4 points 1 points 69 points (max.) *Every ClimateMaster rep should have at least one person LEED accredited to add one point to customers LEED rating.
ClimateMaster Solutions Choosing ClimateMaster equipment can help satisfy up to half (or more) of the requirements for LEED certification –Optimize Energy Efficiency –Additional Commissioning –Ozone Depletion –Measurement and Verification –IEQ (Indoor Environmental Quality) –(cond) 8 points 1 points 3 points
ClimateMaster Solutions ClimateMaster points (contd) –Thermal Comfort –Innovation in Design –LEED accredited professional 2 points 4 points 1 points 21 points Selection of ClimateMaster equipment can add up to 19 points for new construction and up to 21 points for retrofit applications!
Equipment Examples* *Optimize Energy Efficiency points
Equipment Examples* *Optimize Energy Efficiency points
Other LEED points Additional commissioning –3rd party verification (1 point) Measurement and Verification –1 point for monitoring optimization of building energy and water consumption DDC controls Ozone depletion –1 point for systems without HCFCs Tranquility 27 & 20 use HFC-410A LEED Refrigerant Calculator
Understanding ODP and GWP ODP :- Ozone Depletion Potential GWP:- Global Warming Potential
Enhanced Refrigerant Management LEED HFCs Mandatory LEED Mix of HCFC and HFC based equipment allowed Is my Building/Job eligible for EA Credit 4???? Example :- Total number of units : Units use HFCs, 30 Units use HCFCs SOLUTION :- CLIMATEMASTER LEED REFRIGERANT CALCULATOR
Other LEED points IEQ (Indoor Environmental Quality) –1 point: Provide IAQ monitoring via CO 2 sensor CO 2 sensor for each ClimateMaster Rx system –1 point: Provide for effective delivery and mixing of fresh air. Design system for air change effectiveness greater than or equal to 0.9 AC/H per ASHRAE 129. –1 point: Prevent IAQ problems resulting from the construction/renovation process AND provide MERV13 filtration media
Other LEED points Thermal Comfort –1 point: Comply with ASHRAE 55 (Thermal comfort standards) –1 point: Include temperature and humidity monitoring with humidification and/or dehumidification capabilities Innovation in Design –Up to 4 points for exceptional performance above requirements set by the LEED program e.g. Provide training on green buildings, open to the public (must be pre-approved)
Other LEED points LEED accredited professional –One point may be earned for involving a LEED accredited professional. Anyone involved in the project can apply for building certification –Architect –Engineering –Contractor –Manufacturers Rep –Etc.
The Future... ClimateMaster will continue to develop additional HFC-410A products –Vertical stack and console ClimateMaster will continue to develop high efficiency products, which will help gain additional LEED points LEED will continue to gain in popularity and will become code in more and more areas.
