Carrier rooftop units & Wi-Fi® thermostats win utility rebate, deliver efficient cooling
Mayfield Heights, OH
Motorcars Toyota is a family-owned car dealership in Mayfield Heights, Ohio. The 30,000 ft2 facility struggled with an 18-year-old rooftop unit that had become unreliable and inefficient, jeopardizing both the comfort of customers and staff, and the energy and maintenance costs of the company. The old heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system also had outdated controls that were neither secure nor easily accessible to the owner. The dealership management consulted their mechanical contractor, Tri-C Sheetmetal, who recommended Carrier replacement units.
Motorcars Toyota selected Refrigeration Sales Corporation (RSC) to help them choose replacement units that would be highly efficient and reliable, with controls that maximized efficiency and kept the dealership management in touch with the HVAC system, no matter where they were. RSC’s Peter Eno provided modeling using Carrier Commercial Invest Rooftop Payback Analyzer to demonstrate the cooling cost savings of the Carrier 48LC WeatherExpert® rooftop unit. RSC also recommended the Carrier Connect ™ Wi-Fi®-enabled thermostat, which allows the management to view and adjust the HVAC system via smartphone or tablet from any Wi-Fi-enabled location. The high-efficiency rooftop units The Carrier 48LC WeatherExpert® also qualified for a $4,472.00 energy rebate, partially offsetting their first costs.
