Executive Summary:
The HVAC Control Chip testing conducted at CareFree Southern Charm Mobile Home Resort Sales
Office, Zepyherhills, FL on February 6,2015 thru April 7, 2015
Outdoor conditions were mixed during the baseline test period with the daily average temperatures
of 68 and night time temperatures in the 50’s. The HVAC Smart Chip test period (installed) seen a
13 degree upswing temperature differential between periods, with the average daily temperature
of 81 degree. System utilization varied between the baseline and active periods as demonstrated
by the kw usage (BARD unit heavily engaged).
TEST 1
The building is equipped with 2 identical 3.5 Ton 13 seer FRIGIDAIRE package units of same age.
The SIDE PU will be CONROL, wired for KW usage, while the REAR PU (TEST) will be metered and
Smart Chip Installed. This will be a direct head to head test over 62 days
TEST 2
The BARD unit will be a self contained test. The unit will be metered for 23 days to establish a
baseline, smart chip added and use the comparative data points. In both cases Daily KW Usage
reduction is the metric.
RESULTS:
FRIGIDAIRE TEST UNIT demonstrated a 5.73 Daily average KW reduction (60%) over a 62 day
period compared to the CONTROL unit.
The BARD Test demonstrated a 6.36 Daily average KW reduction (22%) over its base line test
period.
In Total 41% reduction in daily KW USAGE
The HVAC Control Chip continues to drive impressive savings in commercial applications even
during non-peak conditions where savings and reduced energy would be substantially higher
during the prolonged heat in Florida from February to September.
In terms of reduction in overall operational expense with The HVAC Control Chip will deliver an
annual savings between $400-$500 at 12 cents per KW. In addition, it will reduce wear and tear
on the compressor and maximizing the efficiency of the system, thus extending the life of the
equipment. The HVAC Control Chip has a 5 year unconditional replacement warranty.

TEST 1: FRIGIDAIRE PU
TEST CASE:
• The Property under review is equipped with 2 identical Frigidaire package unit
of same make and model
• Energy Scout meters will be installed on both units to record KW usage over the test period.
• One Unit will be retrofitted HVAC Control Chip (test) and the other unit (Control) will not.
• The REAR PU is selected as TEST; The Side PU is selected as Control
• The results will compare the average daily KW usage between the two units over a period
of 62 days
Results: Control Chip Installed (4 Week Duration)

• Test Period: 2/6/15 – 4/7/15
• Results on a comparative basis demonstrates a 60% reduction in KW Usage Per Day
• with HVAC Control Chip (test) vs No chip (control).
• HVAC Control Chip was installed on 2/23/15
• KW recording indicates both system not heavily active prior to chip installation date due to average
• temperature of 68 degrees. After installation date, a 13 degree upswing in temperature (81) caused higher
• System engagement and energy consumption.
• A 5.73 daily KW reduction will translate to a $250 annual savings (cost .12 KW )

TEST 2: BARD UNIT
TEST CASE:
• The Property under review is equipped with with 1 Bard unit.
• Energy Scout meters will be installed on both units to record KW usage over the test period.
• Self Contained test; meter will record a baseline of KW usage, then Chip will be installed
and monitored.
• This unit was consistently engaged during the entire test period.
• The results will compare the average daily KW usage between the two units over a period
of 62 days
