Heatherwood Middle School
Silent-Aire Systems was selected to design and manufacture an entire retrofit custom HVAC system for Heatherwood Middle School in Everett, Washington (U.S.A.). The purpose of the project was to replace 20 year old Trane packaged DX VAV rooftop air handling units. Working with Hargis Engineers out of Seattle, Washington, Silent-Aire Systems designed an all-aluminum packaged DX, heat recovery unit that was custom painted to match the School.
The Everett School District had an aggressive timeline in which the project needed to be completed. A complete summertime retrofit of the entire HVAC system was needed in order for them to receive funding from the U.S Federal government. Other challenges associated with the project were; the need to match the existing roof curb openings as well as providing units with advanced heat recovery systems.
Our engineers and designers came up with a solution that was built entirely out of aluminum to maximize weight efficiencies. They designed a system that significantly reduced the School Districts energy consumption all while matching the existing curb openings. Our manufacturing team then built and delivered the custom painted HVAC solution within a ten week timeframe and within the client’s budget expectations.
