An estimated three quarters of currently operating National Hockey League (NHL) ice arenas were built in the mid-1990s. In addition to these larger arenas, there are thousands more private, community, and locally owned rinks across North America.

With the building not being in constant use, the church wanted a solution that could keep the parishioners comfortable during peak capacity without having to oversize the system. The HVAC system also needed to deliver superior heating and cooling performance throughout any season, important in the northeast region of the country.
With Venstar’s Skyport Cloud Services, the Queirolo’s team is able to remotely access customers’ commercial and residential Wi-Fi thermostats directly from the web or using the free Skyport mobile app on their mobile devices.
The team combined several technologies, such as continuous exterior insulation, energy recovery ventilators, sealed combustion boilers, and individual room thermostat controls, including Danfoss thermostatic radiator valves (TRVs). The result is 90 percent lower energy consumption than comparable buildings — and heating costs below $50 per apartment per year.
Finding an indoor comfort system that would fulfill the Van Dixhorns’ specifications of sustainable, energy efficient equipment that wouldn’t detract from the home’s elegant open-floor plan was a must.
Situated on four acres in a wooded area, the Diamondhead Apartment complex consists of four buildings each with eight apartments. The buildings’ deteriorating heating system was installed when the complex was built in 1989.
The expansion at Tocumen included the addition of a new $697 million terminal that would increase the airport’s current service capacity from 5.8 million passengers to 18 million passengers per year. The new 860,000 square foot South Terminal, created the need for an additional 5,750 tons of cooling capacity and 60,000 linear feet of chilled water piping, all of which had to be fabricated, installed, and insulated by Integ.
Four entranceway air curtains, which now protect the Mount Pleasant, South Carolina-based amusement park’s 16,000-square-foot indoor area from outdoor temperatures, have lowered annual utility costs and energy use by approximately $20,000 and 6.6-MMBtu,
