Washington Township School Increases Energy Efficiency in District

Posted 25 October, 2019 — Project Profiles


PROJECT: Recognizing the replacement advantage of Airxchange®’s Field Assembled Kit design. The Washington Township School System located in Sewell, NJ partnered with Tozour Energy Systems to supply (6) replacement energy recovery wheels.

The second project in a series of mechanical refurbishment initiatives, aimed at increasing energy efficiency within the district, Airxchange® was once again specified to develop the replacement strategy for all (6) components.  The unique design of the Airxchange® field assembled kit allowed the contractor to cost effectively perform the replacement with a design that can be effectively maintained over time.  Even with tight on-site space limitations,  the project was completed in a weeks’ time with no alterations to the existing structure or air handler.

Unlike the previous monolithic wheels, Airxchange®’s segmented wheels can be effectively cleaned outside the cabinet ensuring high performance and long-life expectancy.  Even with the shorter operating hours typically associated with municipal schools, the district will still enjoy significant heating and cooling savings and a payback of just a few short years.
