Rooftop units and i-Vu® interface deliver efficient comfort at the Resurrection Center
The Resurrection Center, a nondenominational church located in Wilmington, Delaware, serves some 1,500 members with a 35,000 square foot multi-purpose facility. Religious services, classes for children and adults, daycare, administrative activities and community functions take place in various areas of the building every day of the week. Church administrators sought to replace the outdated heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) equipment at the church with an efficient, reliable system that would provide remote monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities. The new system would have to be installed and brought into service without disrupting the occupants of the heavily used facility, leaving no zone of the building deprived of HVAC services, even for a short time.
Service Unlimited, Inc. — a Delaware-based HVAC installation and service company and a Carrier customer for almost fifty years — in consultation with Peirce-Phelps, Inc., their local Carrier distributor, recommended that The Resurrection Center install eight highly efficient, reliable 48HC WeatherMaster® packaged rooftop units, with an i-Vu® web-based user interface to provide access to the integrated digital controls in each unit. A zone-by-zone schedule was developed and successfully executed to install and bring the units online without disrupting church life or leaving any part of the building without heating, cooling and ventilation services. Thanks to the rooftop units’ efficiency and the fine-tuning and early-response capabilities of the i-Vu user interface, The Resurrection Center expects significant savings in utility costs. Additionally, Service Unlimited is able to provide remote troubleshooting via the i-Vu interface, even when no one is present at the church to call for assistance.
