Greenbuild 2010, held in Chicago this past November, featured over 100 exhibitors—all showcasing the latest and greatest in green product and service innovation.
For the sixth year in a row, Price was there to connect with architects, engineers and builders interested in green construction, and show off our green product offerings.

When selecting a fan powered terminal unit (FPU) as a component in the overall building HVAC system, it is important to understand the differences in the motor technologies that are available. The type of motor–permanent split capacitator (PSC) or electronically commutated motor (ECM)–should be evaluated in terms of energy consumption characteristics and the cost differential/payback period due to energy savings is an important component of that selection.
Several local codes have adopted rules that limit the motor type in series FPUs to only ECM, but fail to address the motor type in the parallel FPU. At the national code level, there is some discussion on making the ECM motor the default type for use in series FPUs as well.
