WHO...
Our local ASHRAE chapter membership
community
WHAT...
In-depth energy assessment, technical
design assistance, and the potential for
high efficiency system installations
2013
WHY...
Since 2008, each host city
ASHRAE chapter has conducted
a sustainability demonstration
project of their choosing
The Project
• 3-story, 23,000 sq.ft.
building built in 1928
• Tens of thousands of
people come to this
facility each year for
shelter, food, and
support
2013
The Facility
• Offices, two chapels,
a library, a kitchen, a
clinic, a dormitory
and other ancillary
spaces
• 3 meals per day,
dorms open each
night
2013
HVAC Systems
• Large boilers and steam
radiators with old valves
• Constant volume make-up air
unit (MAU) for dorms
• Constant exhaust for
showers
• (4) split system AC units
(offices, library, clinic)
• (4) evap cooling units (dorm,
chapel, dining room)
2013
Historical Energy Use
2013
Utility Data
• High EUI and Cost
2013
Utility Data
• Typical profile but high use
2013
Project Goals:
• Help the facility operate more sustainably
with lower energy use and better Indoor
Air Quality - Lower annual energy costs
over 30%

Energy Efficiency Upgrades
2013
1. Lighting Upgrade
2. Replacement of (4) Split Systems
3. Installation of DDC System
4. Steam System Upgrades
5. Replacement of MAU with ERV
6. Replacement of (2) DHW Heaters,
Increased Capacity, Low Flow
Shower Heads
7. Installation of Solar DHW System
ECM: Lighting Upgrade
• Currently 2 and 4-ft T-12
with magnetic ballasts
• Older exterior lights
• Limited occupancy
sensors
• Older Exit Signs
• Project: Upgrade fixtures
and add sensors
2013
ECM: Replace Split Systems
• Replacing (4) units offices, library, clinic
• New units are 21
SEER* @ ARI
Conditions
*SEER = cooling output during a typical
cooling-season divided by the total
electric energy input during the same
period(BTU/W*hr)
2013
ECM: Installation of DDC System
• Tie together HVAC
equipment, zone
thermostats, on/off
enable
• Provide equipment
scheduling,
temperature control,
unoccupied setback,
and remote access
2013
ECM: Steam System Upgrades
• Thermostatic valves and
steam traps in disrepair
• Replace valves and
steam traps
• Address system leaks
2013
ECM: Replacement of Make-Up Air Unit (MAU)
with Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV)
• Tie restroom exhaust into ERV to capture heat
• Continuous ventilation for better IAQ
2013
ECM: Replacement of (2) DHW Heaters,
Increased Capacity, Low Flow Showers
• Currently only (2) 80 gal tanks
• Adding more capacity and
upgrading to 86% efficiency
2013
