CASE STUDY: US TSUBAKI

July 2019 Newsletter - Volume 6

First Point Mechanical was tasked to replace the existing Johnson Controls Facilitator System at US Tsubaki in Wheeling.


THE CHALLENGE

The existing 20-year old energy management system finally failed and US Tsubaki had lost the ability to control the rooftop units for the building.  They were also looking to add capacity to the system as well as to add controls for the computer area.

THE SOLUTION

US Tsubaki wanted to review several system options: some from a single source and some using a combination of components from different manufacturers.  All these systems were hard wired, labor intensive to install and cost prohibitive.  The Pelican Wireless Control System was chosen because it was wireless, quick to install, easy to operate and about half the cost of a hard wire system.

THE RESULT

"The Pelican Wireless Control System provides easy control and maintains even temperature throughout the building.  It also monitors and adjusts to eliminate excessive CO2 levels, providing a healthier work environment for our employees.  The set-back and start-up schedules are easy to modify, and the system provides the ability to monitor individual units with a click of the mouse.  Also, the phone app provides remove access to the system for easy off-site monitoring and adjustment."

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Reduce energy costs, enhance comfort controls and reduce equipment footprint

THE CHALLENGE
With only two existing thermostats for over 14 classrooms and offices, Loyola Academy was looking for a better way to control the temperature in each classroom and office.  Being located in the basement, the new system also had to be able to dehumidify to maximize its' occupants comfort. 

THE SOLUTION
With limited space above the ceilings, Loyola Academy and First Point's engineers worked together to find a system that would meet both the space limitations and provide additional comfort controls to the teaching staff. 

THE RESULT
First Point Mechanical designed and installed the Mitsubishi VRF system that provides each classroom and office simultaneous heating and cooling .  This project turned two thermostats into 14 individual controlled zones!  This project also freed up mechanical room space and allowed the building to utilize this additional space for storage and classroom use.
