Pines Presbyterian Church

  • Project Location: Houston, TX
  • Owner/Client: Pines Presbyterian Church
  • Project Description:

Pines Presbyterian Church in Houston needed an HVAC upgrade. The 32,471 square-foot church required a quiet space where their over 600 regular members could gather. After DXS worked with design and construction teams to provide Pines with the best possible solution, a new 60-ton Daikin VRV/VRF system was installed. The Daikin VRV/VRF system provided the church with the low sound levels it required, along with significant energy savings due to its highly efficient design. Comfort was not sacrificed for quietness and energy efficiency. The Daikin VRV/VRF system creates an optimal indoor environment for occupants by providing the church with precise temperature control.

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
