alt

The Riverside Energy Efficiency Laboratory (REEL) was established in 1939 as a test and research facility for the heating, ventilation and air condition industry. For more than 70 years, this independent, laboratory at the Texas A&M University Riverside Campus has served air conditioning and ventilation manufacturers globally. The laboratory is ISO 17025 (Laboratory Quality) certified, and it is also the official testing laboratory for the Home Ventilating Institute. Riverside Energy Efficiency Laboratory’s mission is to provide accurate and repeatable testing and research results, whether it is from a standard test/research procedure or from a custom test/research procedure developed for specific equipment requirements. REEL strives to accomplish this through highest quality, accountable and ethical practices. REEL has extensive research and testing experience investigating new technologies for HVAC systems. Examples of recent and ongoing HVAC projects dealing with both systems and components are in areas such as, innovative compressor configurations, new refrigerants and lubricants, non-standard temperature and weather performance, innovative evaporator configurations, dehumidification technologies, heat driven air conditioning units and condensate recycling.
