Danfoss app compares chiller ROI

DENMARK: Danfoss has released a new mobile app that enables potential chiller purchasers to compare solutions and decide on the best long-term investment.

ChillerROI is said to make the complex decision of buying a chiller simple by comparing two chillers side-by-side.

Danfoss argues that there are multiple factors to consider in choosing the right chiller — and the consequences can be far-reaching and expensive. Calculating the return on investment can deliver significant energy cost savings in the long run, with high-efficiency chillers having a payback time as fast as two to three years.

The ChillerROI app requires  a few key pieces of information, such as chiller efficiency data, local electrical rates, initial cost and expected hours of operation. The app then compares the data and displays it on an easy-to-read graph that you can export and share.

ChillerROI is available for download for free on Google Play and the iTunes Store.
