COMPLETION: Completed

CUSTOMER: Fort Dix at McGuire Air Force Base

OBJECTIVE: Reduce operating and ownership costs of military housing units for residents.

DESCRIPTION: Military members living at McGuire Air Force Base will be fitted with Hallowell International’s AcadiaT. This combined heating and cooling system was installed in approximately 2,000 homes in an effort to be more energy and cost efficient and environmentally conscious. According to the company, the AcadiaT will reduce overall energy consumption along with heating and cooling costs by more than 20 percent annually. The system will also increase the overall comfort of the homes. “We are passionate about what we do and want to continue to develop technologies that will aid in protecting our planet and are within reach to consumers,” said Duane Hallowell, president and CEO of Hallowell International. The system will be installed by United Communities LLC, the owner of the Military Housing Privatization Project at Fort Dix/McGuire. As a patented, next generation heat pump, the AcadiaT employs a patented Opti-Cycle booster that enables it to run efficiently in temperatures as cold as –30°F.
