Confidence in the energy-efficiency performance of equipment including HVAC systems, electric motors and variable-speed drives leaves much to be desired, according to a new study from The Carbon Trust.

The research, reported in RAC Magazine (29th February 2016), reveals that 24 per cent of professionals responsible for procuring energy-using equipment for their business are not confident at all in the energy-saving assertions made by manufacturers.

The survey examined behaviour, attitudes and intentions towards the purchase of energy-saving equipment and was carried out across the public and private sector, with 135 professionals canvassed for their views.

A third of respondents claimed that a lack of credible information meant they could not implement energy-saving measures with confidence, while two in three did not consider the lifetime costs of equipment when making procurement decisions.

Here at Gibbons we believe in providing clients with all the information necessary for them to make the right decision. Our expert engineers can supply comprehensive technical data on our electric motors, ABB drives, Lowara pumps, Bonfiglioli gearboxes, HVAC equipment and humidification systems along with the rest of our product range.

We’re also able to perform trials in order to compare the performance of existing installations with our own energy-efficient equipment. This gives customers clear proof of the savings to be made while making them aware of the whole life costs of running their process.

If you’d like Gibbons to help you with the energy efficiency of your equipment – whatever industry you’re operating in – then give us a call on 01621 868138 or email
