YMCA ITHACA – ITHACA, NY
The YMCA asked Taitem to investigate energy efficiency opportunities when considering arenovation project for their building. Our team conducted an energy audit, analyzed building energy use, conducted energy charette meetings and prepared reports for the Green Jobs Green NY and the Tompkins Business Energy Advisor incentive programs.
The swimming pool water is maintained at 85 deg F throughout the year, and the ambient temperature in the room is 83-86 deg F. This combined with the pool area’s old drafty 10X10 windows means that this area contributes to a big chunk of the site’s gas usage at approximately 50%. Other recommendations included:a ground water loop heat pump system, an air source heat pump (ASHP) – multi split system, condensing packaged RTU’s and a CO2 refrigerant ASHP hot water heater system.
