HVAC

Industry Overview

The last things you should be worrying about are occupant comfort and system efficiency. The heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems (HVAC) just needs to work. But they also need to be energy efficient and help reduce operating costs. Buildings ranging from office towers to hospitals, schools to data centers, and across many applications - including air handlers, water pumps, cooling towers and chillers - all use electric motors that we can help ensure are run in the most efficient and reliable manner. ABB’s Baldor-Reliance® motors are a complete line of air handling solutions that will improve your system’s reliability and performance while lowering your total cost of ownership (TCO).
Energy efficiency

Energy efficiency matters

Moving air is one of the most inefficient uses of energy. Buildings are responsible for more than 30 percent of global energy consumption, and HVAC accounts for half of the energy used in buildings. Incorporating ultra-efficient (IE5+) motors to be run with variable frequency drives (VFDs), buildings can improve their power consumption usage significantly and achieve a greener, more sustainable footprint. With a more efficient solution, this will decrease the costs for property owners, while ensuring the comfort of occupants and continuous operations. All Baldor-Reliance motors meet or exceed all efficiency requirements for U.S., Canada and Mexico regulations.
Reliable

Reliable quality

Baldor-Reliance motors are specifically engineered with industry-driven designs to keep your air handling systems running smoothly, quietly and efficiently, which means better system reliability and performance with less maintenance. Our motors are built in our U.S. manufacturing facilities, and the attention to detail is what sets us apart. Dynamically balanced rotors to reduce noise and extend bearing life, corona-free insulation systems, shaft grounding options for variable speed use and sealing options to ensure ingress protection – these are ways we design for longevity and extend product performance.
