Energy Sciences Upgrades Tech At Madison Heights Senior Center

BIRMINGHAM — Birmingham-based Energy Sciences LLC completed an energy efficiency upgrade to the Madison Heights Senior Center’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.

 A new demand control ventilation system appropriately adjusts the correct amount of fresh air required in according to occupancy levels. This control scheme saves significant amount of energy by limiting the amount of outside air to be tempered. 

Existing inefficient HVAC units were also replaced with new models sized properly for the building’s intended use. 

The goal of this project was to support the city’s goal to achieve a 25 percent reduction in the use of non-renewable energy by the year 2015 from the baseline year of 2005. 

The scope of work encompassed; system design, bid documents, rebate application services, project management and commissioning.  Energy Sciences secured over $4,000 in custom utility rebates for the city.

Energy Sciences specializes demand side energy management services for the commercial, industrial and municipal sectors. It provides tailored projects and develops strategic programs that reduce operating costs and minimize carbon footprint.
