If the space inside the open door is conditioned, then Berner air curtains are saving energy.
Two calculators to explore:
|Utility Rates||— Electric ($/kWH)||— Gas ($/Mcf)||— Oil ($/Barrel)|
Berner International LLC Air Curtain Energy Savings Calculator (ESC) generates a payback period that is based on loads calculated from generalized customer input, TMY3 weather data, and ASHRAE calculations. Air curtain efficiency used to determine this payback period is based on generally accepted theory, laboratory and field tests. All results derived from ESC are for estimation only, actual payback period may vary. Berner International LLC is not responsible for variations in performance, input data, and payback, that may include and are not limited to site conditions, misapplication, energy costs, installation, etc.
Energy savings calculations include motor operating costs based on electrical utility rate.
The Berner Effectiveness Rating is a numerical scale representation assigned by Berner to its products to illustrate their effectiveness relative to each other.
Berner applies penalties to product performance based on mounting height, opening location and the products ability to resist wind.
The "generic air curtain" performance is based on the typical effectiveness of generally accepted performance achieved from a properly applied air curtain at conditions conducive to an air curtain solution.
