Phap Quang Temple

  • Project Location: Grand Prairie, TX
  • Owner/Client: Phap Quang Temple
  • Project Description:

This building was being renovated due to lack of structural support for the existing air handling units serving it.  The owners were looking for new energy efficient equipment that would not require any further structural bracing or require cutting into existing trusses. As basis of design, DXS needed to provide a budget friendly HVAC system that would fit the existing structural limitations of the building. Since church services are held in this environment, unit noise was also a very important driver.

32 Tons of Daikin Heat Pump Systems serving 10 Daikin Ductless Air Handlers, including wall mounted and ceiling cassette units, were installed on a very short timeline. The contractor had many people who had never worked with this equipment, and we were able to accommodate those needs with a private training class for the full workforce.

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
