    "Being Green"

    HVAC has incorporated work practices that will conserve resources and help to sustain our environment:

    • Re-cycle old HVAC equipment for different kinds of scrap metals.
    • Replace older split A/C systems with better rated units (that were rated at 9SEER with new 13 SEER rated units)
    • Replace old high energy use hot water heaters with the new low energy “instant-on” hot water heaters
    • Replace large HVAC systems with new low energy use units
    • Installing new geo-thermal heating and cooling system at Wicomico Hall. 
    • Participated in extensive campus energy management that has resulted in a 3 million dollars saving in a little over three years
