The HVAC Smart Chip PLUS microprocessor. The NEW enhancement features DUAL Microprocessors.
The first microprocessor monitors how long the AC unit runs, and then automatically programs the fan to continue running until all of the cold air left in the ducts has been delivered to the rooms. While some AC manufacturers program the fan to run for 90 seconds after the AC compressor turns off, recent testing by the California Energy Commission shows an average 15-20% improvement in efficiency with extended run time. The extended fan time reduces the number of times the AC compressor cycles on—one of the worst energy guzzlers in both commercial and residential buildings. Additionally, The HVAC Smart Chip Plus monitors how long the furnace runs, and then activates the furnace fan at the end of the combustion cycle to stay on for up to 8 minutes longer. The additional fan run time extracts more heat from the furnace, resulting in less waste and less run furnace time, saving an average of 10-15% in energy costs. The second microprocessor features Compressor Saver Technology- all compressor driven systems cycling greater than 30 minutes will get a 5 minute reprieve, reducing wear and tear and driving additional savings to the Customer.
