Recently, Budderfly, a fastest-growing firm in the North American Energy-Efficiency-as-a-Service (EEaaS), announced it is adding complete HVAC unit replacement. Additionally, it is adding associated ongoing maintenance to its EEaaS offering.

About the additions
Accordingly, the new offering extends the company’s no upfront cost, multi-component energy optimization program; particularly, to cover aging and inefficient, packaged HVAC units up to 25 tons.
Moreover, as part of the offering, Budderfly announced it signed national agreements with major HVAC manufacturers; mainly, to provide high-efficiency units made to Budderfly’s custom standards.
In this sense, Al Subbloie, CEO, Budderfly commented; Indeed, “the vast majority of businesses use cost as their main decision criteria—over efficiency—when selecting an HVAC replacement unit.”
Additionally, “our long-term savings model makes it possible for our customers to install the highest quality HVAC unit; indeed, based on efficiency, not costs;” added Subbloie. Therefore, “we are proud our EEaaS offering is removing the pricing barriers to embrace greener energy practices.”
Budderfly, leveraging energy efficiency needs
In fact, in the Annual Energy Outlook 2021, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) found that the commercial sector used about 155 billion kWh for cooling in 2020. Thus, this was equal to about 12% of total commercial sector electricity consumption and 4% of total U.S. electricity consumption.
New, mid-range HVAC units have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of approximately 19-23. Thus, upgrading an older air conditioner with a SEER of 10 to a newer model; particularly, with a SEER of at least 19 under Budderfly’s HVAC replacement program; will reduce a customer’s cooling costs. It will also reduce it by about half—notably contributing to lowering the commercial sector’s overall electricity consumption.
As part of the company’s overall EEaaS, Budderfly sub-meters HVAC-related operations at the point of energy consumption to create an average power usage baseline. Thus, leveraging the sub-metering analytics as a guideline, the company either adjusts HVAC performance; mainly, to optimize efficiency, or performs a replacement of units and documents the decreased energy use.
Remarkably, Budderfly has created a 100% transparent layered service model. Thus, customers can easily understand both the energy bill reduction from maintenance/replacement upgrades.
