Life Cycle Cost Savings
Life Cycle Costing (LCC) aims to quantify the financial impact of a product over its entire life cycle to assist consumers in making decisions that will save them money over the long term.
GSA's Proving Ground found that the use of cogged V-belts and synchronous-drive fan belts are a low-investment way to reduce the inefficiencies in ventilation fans caused by bel slippage and bending resistance. GPG found an energy savings of 2 - 20% for synchronous belts, with about half that savings for cogged fan belts. Payback is between 1 and 4 years, depending on the type of fan belt.
