Project Description

In 2005, Haverhill Elementary was the least energy efficient out of 10 buildings at Southwest Allen County Schools based on cost per square foot. Originally built in 1981 with a traditional central plant, it had a water cooled chiller and inefficient and oversized boilers. The chiller/cooling tower combination was expensive to operate, had outlived its usefulness, and was in dire need of replacement.

Sustainable Solution

After reviewing multiple options from different providers, a unique and innovative geothermal system proposed by Performance Services was clearly the best overall solution. The hybrid design utilizes much of the existing air and water distribution-saving significant dollars. The geothermal system relies on a heat recovery chiller (rather than heat pumps) and a vertical well field for central plant heating and cooling needs.
