The West Hardin CCISD administration was in a pickle as they tried to pay for old and continually failing HVAC units, yet had no extra funds to do a more comprehensive project to fix the problem. The solution: the TASB/E3 team completed a districtwide energy efficiency and conservation program for West Hardin CCISD. The $1.08M project is estimated to save the school district approximately $67,000 annually and included a one-time utility rebate of $20,364.
The comprehensive project included:
- Replacement of 35 HVAC units over 15 years old
- Districtwide LED lighting improvements
- Converted a Band Hall air return and added an HVAC in the storage area to improve comfort
- Corrected a condensate line problem in the library that had been ongoing for years
- Installed programmable thermostats throughout the district to maintain control and comfort
