Being driven by the surging need for energy, high investment in the chemical and petrochemical industries
June 15, 2016
The global chillers market is forecast to grow from $8.63 billion in 2015 to $10.84 billion by 2021, increasing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.24 percent, according to a new report from MarketsandMarkets.
For building owners looking to install new chillers or replace an existing system, the options can be daunting, but selecting the most appropriate chiller for an individual application does not have to be complicated.
HVAC chiller manufacturers are offering a range of products in multiple configurations that use new refrigerants, consume less energy, communicate more effectively, can be serviced more easily, and may be designed to fit a wide range of applications.
Performing regular maintenance on chillers ensures they will operate as efficiently, and for as long, as possible. And while maintenance plans and practices can vary from region to region, manufacturer to manufacturer, and even client to client, HVACR contractors agree that minimal maintenance is better than no maintenance.
