Variable Frequency Drives

VFDs are used to control fan and pump speed in many different environments–from building systems to agriculture to water management.

VFDs can cut your fan’s energy requirements significantly. They also:

  • Save money
  • Reduce noise
  • Are less expensive to maintain
  • “Soft-start” your fan, reducing wear and tear, and also reducing your electricity demand during motor starting
  • Provide accurate and repeatable control of HVAC settings

For information about VFDs for agriculture or water management uses, view our Custom Solutions page.

Working with Efficiency Nova Scotia was easy. After submitting a feasibility study and laying out the scope of work, it was an easy exchange of a few phone calls and emails, and we were ready to go.

In order for Shannex Inc. to make their facilities the most comfortable possible for both residents and staff, they reached out to Efficiency Nova Scotia to install a variable frequency drive (VFD). A rebate of over $78,000 helped them with the project, and everyone who lives and works on the campus has noticed a difference in the comfortable environment created.
