Through GSE an International Apparel Company Achieved 10.5% in Energy Savings by Improving HVAC Efficiency

A pioneer in the global apparel industry with stores across several European countries, contacted GSE regarding HVAC issues in some of their retail stores. With several hundred stores worldwide, our client needed a reliable company for HVAC preventable maintenance so that customers felt as comfortable as possible while they browsed clothing racks.

The Situation

A reliable HVAC maintenance system is a crucial component of the retail industry. Our client noticed mechanical malfunctions and foul odors coming from HVAC systems in some of their stores. 

The equipment issues were surely driving away potential customers. They reached out to GSE looking for around-the-clock HVAC temperature monitoring and a notification system that would alert them of impending malfunction.

The Solution

Key information gleaned from Viridis BMS was assessed by a team of GSE engineers who specialize in HVAC.

The data was immediately relayed to our client’s maintenance team and continuous follow-up was provided, resulting in an average supply temperature reduction from 63°F to 61°F, thereby increasing HVAC efficiency by 12%.

The Success

With GSE, our client’s HVAC preventative maintenance needs were met across their vast network of retail stores using our state-of-the-art Viridis hardware, the 24/7 Data Assessment Center, and a team of highly-skilled engineers, ready and waiting to provide real-time data on temperature fluctuations
