1LEED® Certification :- Scoring Points How ClimateMaster’s EarthPure™ R-410A heat pumps fit into the LEED program
2LEED = Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design What is LEED?LEED = Leadership in Energy and Environmental DesignDeveloped by USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) in conjunction withDOEEPAGSA (U.S. General Services Administration)Air Force, Army, NavyStates of CA, CT, IL, ME, MD, MA, MI, NJ, NY, OR, PA
3Why LEED? Annual Building consumption Sustainable Design 30% of the total energy60% of the electricity5 billion gallons of potable water used to flush toilets every daySustainable DesignResponsibility towards our environment
4Goals and Benefits The goals of the LEED program include Reduced or neutralized first costsEnhanced asset value/increased profitsOptimized life cycle economic performanceEconomic benefits includeImproved productivityReduced liability
5Why 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 requirementsNew York was the first state to implement a green building tax programUp to $3.75 per square foot for interior work andUp to $7.50 per square foot for exterior work against their state tax bill
6Why Does It Matter?Cook County, IL requires new county facilities to meet LEED Silver certificationMaryland has implemented a green building tax credit and requires state buildings to meet LEED standardsPortland created a tailored version of LEED for city funded buildingsSeattle sets a LEED Silver level rating for city funded projects
7Why Does It Matter? Case Studies Energy efficiency measures in a Denver dry goods building --- Reduced Operating expenses - $75000Students in day-lit schools in North Carolina consistently score higher in tests compared to students in schools using conventional fixturesProductivity gains of workers by a US Survey - 16%Grocery store- Spokane, Washington, Waste management costs - 56%
8LEED Certifications LEED-NC (new construction – commercial) Complete and has been in use for four yearsLEED-CI (commercial interiors)LEED-EB (existing buildings)LEED-CS (core and shell – commercial)LEED-H (single family residential)-PILOTLEED-ND (residential neighborhood)In development
9LEED-NC Seven prerequisites ... Sediment and erosion control Minimum energy performance (ASHRAE 90.1)Fundamental commissioningCFC reductionStorage of recyclableMinimum IAQ performance (ASHRAE 62)Environmental tobacco smoke control
10LEED-NC Five basic categories for design points … Subtotal Sustainable sitesWater efficiencyEnergy and atmosphere*Materials and resourcesIndoor environmental quality* 15Subtotal64 Points*ClimateMaster Solutions are applicableNOTE: 1/2 of the points are EA or IEQ
11LEED-NC Additional points … 64 points 4 points 1 points Subtotal (previous page)Design and process innovationLEED accredited professional*64 points4 points1 points69 points (max.)*Every ClimateMaster rep should have at least one personLEED accredited to add one point to customer’s LEEDrating.
12LEED-NC Four levels of LEED certification … LEED Certified - 26 Points LEED Silver PointsLEED Gold PointsLEED Platinum Points
13ClimateMaster Solutions Choosing ClimateMaster equipment can help satisfy up to half (or more) of the requirements for LEED certificationOptimize Energy EfficiencyAdditional CommissioningOzone DepletionMeasurement and VerificationIEQ (Indoor Environmental Quality)(con’d)8 points1 points3 points

17Other LEED points Additional commissioning 3rd party verification (1 point)Measurement and Verification1 point for monitoring optimization of building energy and water consumptionDDC controlsOzone depletion1 point for systems without HCFCsTranquility 27 & 20 use HFC-410ALEED Refrigerant Calculator
18Understanding ODP and GWP ODP :- Ozone Depletion PotentialGWP:- Global Warming Potential
19Enhanced Refrigerant Management LEED HFC’s MandatoryLEED Mix of HCFC and HFC based equipment allowedIs my Building/Job eligible for EA Credit 4???? Example :- Total number of units : Units use HFC’s, 30 Units use HCFC’s SOLUTION :- CLIMATEMASTER LEED REFRIGERANT CALCULATOR
20Other LEED points IEQ (Indoor Environmental Quality) 1 point: Provide IAQ monitoring via CO2 sensorCO2 sensor for each ClimateMaster Rx system1 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
21Other LEED points Thermal Comfort Innovation in Design 1 point: Comply with ASHRAE 55 (Thermal comfort standards)1 point: Include temperature and humidity monitoring with humidification and/or dehumidification capabilitiesInnovation in DesignUp to 4 points for exceptional performance above requirements set by the LEED programe.g. Provide training on green buildings, open to the public (must be pre-approved)
22Other 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 certificationArchitectEngineeringContractorManufacturer’s RepEtc.
23The Future . . .ClimateMaster will continue to develop additional HFC-410A productsVertical stack and consoleClimateMaster will continue to develop high efficiency products, which will help gain additional LEED pointsLEED will continue to gain in popularity and will become code in more and more areas.
