Project Highlights and Results

  • After studying the flue venting system of the domestic hot water heaters, Elara determined there was a problem with the condominium's venting configuration that was causing exhaust gases to seep into the mechanical room.
  • An investigation identified a venting problem with the stack associated with two aging absorption chillers and main heating boiler.
  • Recommended that a new cooling and heating plant be installed instead of maintaining the existing absorption chiller system that was used for heating and cooling.
  • Two older hot water heaters also were replaced with newer, more efficient models.
  • Absorption chillers were replaced with electric chillers and condensing boilers¬† to achieve greater efficiency overall.
