SUMMIT, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Energy Technology Savings L.L.C. (ETS), an independent provider of energy efficiency and smart building technology solutions, today announced the first-of-its-kind wireless PTAC pilot program with Lowe’s and Electrolux to test new heating and cooling units in multifamily, high-rise buildings. A packaged terminal air conditioner, or PTAC, is a self-contained heating and air conditioning unit commonly found in hotels and condominium and rental buildings.
The wireless HVAC units, which will be deployed in five different metropolitan NY/NJ locations, were designed to enable building operations management and residents to better manage and reduce energy costs with anytime, anywhere smartphone mobile applications to control and schedule heating and air conditioning appliances.
Lowe’s will display the wireless PTAC unit at its booth during the 2015 International Consumer and Electronics Show (CES) from January 6-9 in Las Vegas. Executives from Lowe’s and ETS will be on hand to discuss the new generation product at Booth #70632 in the Sands Expo Hall.
“ETS’ comprehensive data collection and diagnostics systems are influencing new developments in smart building technology in the residential and commercial multifamily sectors by providing critical, in-the-field information vital to advancements in technology and behavior modifications,” said Jeff Hendler, Chief Executive Officer of ETS. “Our holistic vision to harness wearable devices with smart mobile applications is unleashing big data from big buildings. The wireless PTAC units are a great example of how leading smart home appliance providers like Lowe’s and Electrolux are embracing these new paths to energy savings and resident comfort by actively taking it from concept to reality.”
The collaboration with Lowe’s and Electrolux reflects ETS’ strategy of developing business relationships with leading smart technology providers. The company recently demonstrated Lowe’s smart home products in the New York City multifamily marketplace.
