Fairbanks designs an efficient heating system for RSCC

Fairbanks Energy Services, a full-service design/build energy efficiency firm and developer of comprehensive commercial and industrial efficiency projects, announced the completion of an HVAC and mechanical system upgrade for RSCC Wire & Cable. The energy efficiency retrofit resulted in a new heating system. These efficiency measures are estimated to save RSCC Wire & Cable over 402,800 kWh annually. 
Prior to this upgrade, 140,000+ square feet of RSCC Wire & Cable’s manufacturing space was serviced by a steam generator with a heat exchanger that served a hot water loop and 13 air handlers (AHUs) that were energy-intensive and in need of repair or replacement. RSCC Wire & Cable turned to Fairbanks Energy Services for a new heating system design.
The heating system Fairbanks Energy Services developed is highly energy-efficient and solves the replacement issue. The system consists of four new, 100% outside air heaters, each rated for 1,386,000 BTUH. The units are installed on the roof and have a 92% efficiency rating.
The upgrades are estimated to save RSCC Wire & Cable over USD55,000 per year with 401,874 kWh and 11,223 therms saved annually.
