Findlay, OH, September 13, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The University of Findlay and RCM architects are working with Greensleeves to install a complete packaged energy management system for the 41,000 sq. ft. Davis Street Science Addition. The addition will contain a lecture theatre, instruction labs, classrooms and offices.
“We are always concerned about energy costs, financially 85% of the long term cost of a building is utilities,” said Dan May, vice president of academic affairs. Greensleeves’ Energy Exchange™ was selected because it is estimated to reduce long term energy cost by more than 50%. The Energy Exchange is a packaged energy management system containing geothermal heat pumps, circulating pumps, integrated controls, thermal storage and radiant heating/cooling. This ISO9001 factory assembled solution harvests energy sources, stores energy for later use and distributes it by selecting the most cost effective source at any given point in time.
This “green” addition will leverage existing equipment in the current part of the building and combine it with newer more efficient technologies for the best total solution. The integrated advanced control package manages the temperature of the total system including the geothermal earth heat exchanger to improve system efficiency.
“We are very pleased to see The University of Findlay be a leader in reducing its energy footprint. Greensleeves is passionate about making sustainability affordable in order to reduce the energy footprint of the commercial market,” said W. Michael “Mickey” Linn, CEO and President of Greensleeves.
