This project will consist of upgrading ninety two (92) single and multifamily housing units from existing heat recovery ventilators (HRV) to highly efficient HRVs, cleaning of the existing ducting with a HEPA rated professional air duct cleaning system, and balancing the air exchange. Included in the project is boiler tuning of existing operational systems with pre- and post- tuning combustion analysis of ninety-two (92) homes. The work performed will also include a before and after AKWarm analysis of each unit to show improvements gained in energy efficiency. The project Total Development Cost (TDC) is estimated at $1,858,768.
