Benefits of Heat Pipes for Building Owners

As an owner or manager of any type of building, whether it be a hotel, a school or a manufacturing facility, you need to maintain a comfortable, safe, and efficient indoor environment. Heat pipes in the air conditioning system provide the most economical means available to maintain superior indoor air quality, while providing a return on investment.

According to a study by the EPA and the Department of Energy, heat pipes not only dehumidify the conditioned air for health and comfort, they provide tremendous energy savings over active dehumidification methods. In the EPA Heat Pipe Effectiveness Study, dehumidifier heat pipes provided a payback on the entire cost of installation in less than 3 years.

Because heat pipes are passive, with no moving parts, they are virtually maintenance free. This aspect is a welcome change for maintenance personnel and owners alike. Typically, heat pipes outlast the HVAC system itself. Heat Pipes can be used in numerous applications including hotels, schools, restaurants and industry buildings.
