This Lutheran church, which is located in north St. Louis, houses a sanctuary, office space, classrooms, meeting rooms, kitchen, and gymnasium. This facility was found with older roof-mounted HVAC units, pneumatic controls, and limited scheduling and monitoring capabilities. The installation of new, high-efficiency, roof-mounted units and all-new controls for the VAV boxes and related equipment produced the savings.
