Customer ExperiencesBallard Church Cuts Energy Costs 45% With New Boiler / Commercial HVAC System

The Challenge:
Originally installed in 1925, the church’s 1 MBTU oil fired (later changed to gas) furnace was dirty, expensive to operate, unreliable and a constant source of frustration. The equipment room (think dungeon) in which it was located was cramped for space – making repairs and /or installation of a replacement system very difficult. To make matters worse the boiler was connected to an air distribution system that was also obsolete, and inefficient. High operating / repair costs and uncomfortable conditions compelled church leadership to look for answers.

The Process:
Church maintenance Director entertained design build proposals from several local mechanical contractors. After a false start with a large contractor who immediately changed their design approach, MM Comfort Systems was selected based upon superior design, budget and schedule.

The Solution:
Existing air distribution system (duct work, fans, damper, etc) was removed and the below grade furnace was abandoned. A McLain Ultra Com boiler, 3 Carrier fan coils, associated ductwork, piping, pumps, valves, CO2 sensors and smoke detectors were installed. Tight working conditions made precise engineering and installation a requirement.
