Air Curtain Energy Savings Calculator

What's the ROI?

Berner Air Curtain Energy Savings Calculator - Regardless of whether you use an air curtain for temperature protection, flying insect or fume & odor control, if the space near the open door is conditioned, then Berner air curtains are saving energy. Let's estimate how much:

Looks like you've come from the Berner Air Curtain Selector, so we grabbed your model and selection data and pre-filled it here as much as possible. Model(s) copied over:

About your project

This is really about the climate & utility costs, which we need to understand in order to calculate how much heating and/or cooling escapes through an open door.

The BIN data was created using Typical Meteorological Year 2nd Edition (TMY2). It consists of weather data collected over a range of about thirty years, for a specific location. The range provides averages used in energy calculations.

About your door

One door? Multiple doors? Not a door, but a window or an opening? For the purposes of this calculator, we refer to all openings as doors. A project may have more than one door, and thus, more than one air curtain. Enter information on your first door, if there are more, click "add another door." You can compare several air curtain models per door.

* Energy savings calculations include motor operating costs based on electrical utility rate. The Berner Effectiveness Rating is a numerical scale representation assigned by Berner to its products to illustrate their effectiveness relative to each other. Berner applies penalties to product performance based on mounting height, opening location and the products ability to resist wind.

Berner International Corp. Air Curtain Energy Savings Calculator (ESC) generates a payback period that is based on loads calculated from generalized customer input, TMY2 weather data, and ASHRAE calculations. Air curtain efficiency used to determine this payback period is based on generally accepted theory, laboratory and field tests. All results derived from ESC are for estimation only, actual payback period may vary. Berner International Corp. is not responsible for variations in performance, input data, and payback, that may include and are not limited to site conditions, misapplication, energy costs, installation, etc.

Berner applies penalties to product performance based on mounting height, opening location and the products ability to resist wind.

The "generic air curtain" performance is based on the typical effectiveness of generally accepted performance achieved from a properly applied air curtain at conditions conducive to an air curtain solution.
