Modern, Energy Efficient Marley Heaters Earn High Marks at Massachusetts Elementary School
Modern, Energy Efficient Marley Heaters Earn High Marks at Massachusetts Elementary School

The Edmund Hatch Bennett Elementary School, a K-4 public school in Taunton, Mass., was constructed in the 1960's with various upgrades and renovations performed over the past 40 years. However, an aging heating system, including wall unit heaters and cabinet heaters that were original to the building, required updating. The installation of modern, energy efficient heating systems from Marley Engineered Products helped the school make the grade. "Staff at Edmund Hatch sought assistance in optimizing their supplemental heating system," said Matt Goodrich, Sales Representative with Goodyear Electric Sales. "Understanding that clean air quality and filtration is crucial during these times, a building's HVAC system must be examined and updated periodically for the safety and comfort of students, teachers and employees." "We knew the upgraded heating equipment was essential not only to improve air quality but also to provide more efficient heating for the school," said Brenda Moynihan, MCPPO, Assistant Superintendent for Finance & Operations of Taunton Public Schools. "We were very excited to move forward with this project along with the support of the City of Taunton." CU900 Series Custom Cabinet Unit Heater Upon review of the current equipment, Goodrich recommended two of the latest energy efficient technology from Marley Engineered Products: the CU900 Series Custom Cabinet Unit Heater (CUH), which delivers supplemental comfort heat and is easy to install and maintain, and the Architectural Heavy-Duty Wall Heater (AWH) Series that features a contemporary design and powerful output to heat any room or open area. The installing team who oversaw the project, Equipment Direct Sales, Inc. (EDSI), of Randolph, Mass., faced challenges along the way. The size of the wall openings for the wall heaters was one concern as there wasn't an available budget to demo the concrete openings to fit in a similar size unit with the original output. By utilizing the latest AHW Series, the contractors could drop a unit size and still maintain the original heating performance However, by utilizing the latest AHW Series, the contractors could drop a unit size and still maintain the original heating performance, making the installation much easier. modern energy efficient heaters For the CUH replacement, the installation team matched the dimensions of the original units almost exactly, which resulted in a reduced installation cost. "By incorporating the latest technology from Marley Engineered Products, we were able to replace the existing wall and cabinet heaters with modern energy efficient products that are sure to benefit the school," said Steve Clark, project manager with EDSI.   By replacing the original wall and cabinet heaters with modern energy efficient heaters, the school is running less units while still maintaining a comfortable environment, and as a result is realizing utility savings. They are also experiencing the air effects of new units and filters, which aid in filtering and eliminating bacteria and other airborne contaminants.
