We and our consultants have completed
formal comparative studies of utility costs, lighting power
budgets, and Energy Conservation Reports. These reports have
been used to select fuel and energy types, equipment for space
and domestic water heating, cooking and lighting, and location
and thickness of thermal insulation.
Recently on the Wintonia Hotel, an unbudgeted
$20,000 heat exchanger was added to the ventilation system.
Despite the tight budget, it was included because of a short
2-3 year payback; the annual savings could support the non-profit
owners' meal program.
