Greater Mount Zion Baptist Church

  • Project Location: Austin
  • Owner/Client: Greater Mount Zion Baptist Chruch
  • Project Description:

Greater Mount Zion Baptist Church opened a new facility in Austin that required highly efficient equipment to result in low energy bills for the congregation. In addition, due to the wide range of events and schedules at the church, a control system was needed that would allow for independent temperature control for all areas to maintain comfort at various times of the day.

DXS worked with M Tech, Chasco and Jose Guerra to equip the facility with a Daikin VRV IV system with 64 tons of heat recovery and 16 tons of heat pump utilizing ducted units, as well as a 20-ton Maverick II 100 percent outdoor air unit. An iTouch Manager was also used for both the VRV and outdoor air units. The facility was able to qualify for rebates from Austin Energy and receive the functionality of a building management system at a reasonable price.

Non-Profit Key Considerations

Unlike other markets, buildings in the non-profit sector don’t fit into a tidy framework. They might be professional office buildings, multi-family structures, former city or county offices or even an old school. Rather than a structural or user challenge , the need to reduce operating costs and renovate existing buildings remains consistent with our non-profit clients.  We appreciate their budget constraints and work with them to install and maintain VRF air conditioning systems that offer superior AC and heating while keeping their energy bills low.

Key Considerations

  • Energy efficient system lowers on-going energy costs
  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Energy and cost models that can help secure grants and government funding
  • 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 stocked locally
