CPS Energy

  • Project Location: San Antonio, TX
  • Owner/Client: CPS Energy
  • Project Description:

CPS Energy in San Antonio wanted to set an example for their customers by installing an energy efficient VRV system in their new facility. DXS was chosen as basis of design based on their reputation for VRV knowledge, and equipped the new 25,000 square-foot building with 64 tons of Daikin VRV IV Heat Recovery. The system also included an Addison split Outside Air Unit, a mixture of ducted and cassette indoor units, and an iTouch Manager for centralized control.

As a utilities company, CPS energy aimed to incentivize technology that sheds peak load demand and performs efficiently. DXS helped CPS achieve their efficiency goals with a LEED certified building while maintaining occupant comfort at a reasonable cost.

Retail & Office Key Considerations

Architects and engineers working in the retail and professional office building markets consistently face the same scenario:  the ever-changing need to reconfigure tenant space.  As businesses change, their space requirements can fluctuate wildly.  They move, they expand, they downsize.  And because they do, DXS works alongside architects, engineers and owners to design VRF systems that can be configured – and reconfigured – to meet on-going and changing tenant HVAC requirements.

Key Considerations

  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Designed as a modular system to any specifications required by the project
  • System is easily reconfigured after installation
  • Tight temperature controls of multiple zones for multiple tenants
  • Experienced staff and products that have the ability to interface with a wide variety of control systems
  • DXS onsite at five key junctures:  onsite training prior to installation, quality control checks during installation, during start-up, 30 days after commissioning for building owner verification, and ongoing training for staff
  • Fast, dependable service and maintenance support after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment locally stocked
