499 Park Avenue earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance as a result of original building features and a series of retrofits to the interior infrastructure. An original exterior design including dual-pane, high-efficiency tinted glass is key to reducing thermal heat gain during summer months and minimizing heat loss in the winter. Additional HVAC savings are accomplished through the use of variable frequency drives (VFDs) on air-handling units and cooling tower fans, and through the use of free cooling coils to reduce compressor run time. Energy efficiency at 499 Park Avenue is also improved through the use of high-efficiency fluorescent bulbs in building common areas. Finally, property management actively uses a building automation system to optimize building operations and help reduce unnecessary energy demand.
