CATALYST achieved an average HVAC energy savings of 57%


Great News!!!! The long anticipated Department of Energy (DOE) study of the CATALYST has been publicly released. Most of you know that the DOE commissioned the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) to evaluate the potential energy saving benefit from retrofitting existing Rooftop Packaged Units (RTU’s) with “advanced controls”. The study found that the CATALYST achieved an average HVAC energy savings of 57%. While we cannot guarantee every customer will see this level of savings, the report was based on field tests of 66 RTU’s retrofitted with the CATALYST across four different climate zones, serving varying facility types. The PNNL considered our competitors and selected the CATALYST for the two-year study. The CATALYST was chosen based on its comprehensive features and product “maturity”. You can view the full report here. Elliott-Lewis is the exclusive affiliate for the Catalyst Converter in this area.

Elliott-Lewis technicians are factory trained on VRF systems from Daikin and Mitsubishi


Elliott-Lewis technicians are now factory trained on Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems manufactured by Daikin and Mitsubishi. The ductless VRF systems have been around for nearly 30 years, but have only been used in the U.S. in the last decade. Invented in Japan, VRF systems are quite popular in Asia, Europe and South America. They offer a great alternative to traditional systems for upgrades and new construction because of their cost effectiveness and energy efficiency. The ductless feature makes a VRF system particularly well suited for multifamily buildings or other applications where low ceiling height may exist and disruption of tenants, students, or office occupants is critical. To learn more about how a VRF may work for your facility, contact Gene Zak at
