The goal of this project was to reduce energy consumption and improve thermal comfort in this Rolling Hills, CA branch location. This client is dedicated to reducing their environmental impact, C02 footprint, and energy costs. They wanted an energy conservation measure that could provide meaningful energy savings with a rapid ROI and insisted that the installation would not disrupt ongoing operations.
This 4,140 sq. f.t retail bank branch was only 2-years old and is compliant with modern energy code standards. It is well-insulated concrete masonry, single story facility which utilizes new heat pump equipment for both heating and cooling.
We completed a detailed site audit followed by a measurement and verification analysis of the branch’s HVAC energy consumption. Approximately 2,900 sq. ft. of ENRG Blanket™ was installed over the drop ceiling, covering roughly 70% of the occupied space and was installed in less than 3 hours during one evening for no disruption to the bank operations.
The ENRG Blanket™ was selected to optimize the building’s thermal performance based on its operational characteristics and the weather patterns in the buildings geographical location. Measurement and verification analysis of HVAC energy consumption resumed after the installation to validate the ENRG Blanket‘s™ performance.
The impact on the facility’s HVAC energy consumption was immediate. Post installation analyses indicated a significant decrease in raw HVAC current consumption. After normalizing the post installation energy data to account for annual weather patterns, the project resulted in a 26% reducation in HCAV energy consumption (30,00 kWh/yr).
