​Commercial HVAC Efficient Pumping Systems (CHEPS) for commercial buildings promise energy savings when replacing constant-speed pumps. CHEPS include integrated, variable-speed, HVAC-system pumps, and controls. Multiple manufacturers offer CHEPS, including Armstrong, Bell & Gossett, Grundfos and Taco. Good CHEPS applications include buildings with varying heating and cooling loads and long hours of operation.  This ET Field Test could fully fund up to 10 CHEPS, replacing constant-speed pumps ranging in size between 1/3 and 10 horsepower, with the intent of informing a region-wide offering.
