  2. more output than before from the same amount of factor inputs;
  3. a given output of a product at lower cost than before by substituting cheaper factor inputs for more expensive ones in the production process (the ‘ideal’ or optimum position is attained when the largest possible output is produced from a given volume of factor inputs using available technology);

Even if your facilities are in a warmer climate, you still have options for savings with an air-side economizer, says ENERGY STAR: "Because data centers must be cooled 24/7, 365 days per year, air-side economizers may even make sense in hot climates, where they can take advantage of cooler evening or winter air temperatures.
HX-2 is the new 1,000 ton (3520 kW) plate-and-frame waterside economizer heat exchanger, with its capacity chosen to provide the winter cooling load, essentially equaling the capacity of any two of the 500 ton (1760 kW) chillers.
Usually the performance of refrigerating system with economizer can be predicted and parameters of required components can be determined using the selection software provided by compressors manufacturer.
