Located in a small community in north central Washington, Tonasket School District was challenged by an old, costly, and inefficient HVAC system.
Frequent repairs cost staff time and tens of thousands of dollars each year. Plus, parts for antiquated boiler and chiller systems were no longer available. With the help of its local utility, Okanogan County PUD, the school district modernized its boiler and chiller systems to improve efficiency, maintain comfortable temperatures, and reduce the burden on maintenance staff. With these energy-saving improvements, the district estimates it is saving more than 156,000 kilowatt hours of electricity annually.
