Green Project Creates Cost Savings for Armory Building

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

IntelliChoice Energy leverages joint solar project to reduce electrical costs for senior citizens
Tucson, Arizona – Tucson income-restricted senior citizens will now realize significant cost savings on their monthly utility bills thanks to an innovative project by IntelliChoice Energy (ICE), a leader in green solutions for heating and cooling. The joint solar project at the Armory building in Tucson features both solar panels and the NextAire™ 8 and 15-ton Gas-Fired Heat Pump (GHP) units. The combination of solar electricity production and the NextAire™ Multi-Zone GHPs will help capture a 70 percent reduction in the building’s electrical load.

“Our work with IntelliChoice Energy brought an innovative solution to a problem caused by a lack of space needed to support the number of solar-voltaic panels necessary to achieve a 70 percent reduction in electrical load. Now, with our partner, IntelliChoice Energy, this project will benefit from solar rebates,” said Marshall Dennington, President and Owner of Temco, a Tucson-based company.

According to project managers, by installing 70 tons of heating and cooling provided by the NextAire™ GHPs, the Armory building will benefit from a 90 percent Peak Power demand reduction and an estimated savings of nearly a half million gallons of water, which will result in a smaller carbon footprint.Additionally, the NextAire™ 8 and 15-ton Multi-Zone GHPs use natural gas—a domestic resource. The units are successfully operating across the Southern United States in schools, government buildings and commercial buildings of all sizes.

“This exciting venture, a combination of solar and our NextAire™ product line, is exactly the kind of project that will support any commercial construction effort to achieve a high LEED Rating,” said Tom Young, Chief Technology Officer and Company Founder.

Armory Building Facts:

The ICE NextAire. Product line will help the Armory building to achieve:

80 percent less electricity usageo

Average of 90 percent

Peak Power Demand reduction

Estimated 80 percent amperage reduction

Reduction in noise pollution

Improvement of indoor environmental quality

Efficiency in water usageo

Estimated 476,000 gallons of water saved per year

Optimization of energy performance

NextAire General Facts:

The NextAire. Gas-Fired Heat Pump product line was specially engineered to be environmentally friendly while providing a new benchmark of efficiency excellence in heating and cooling. Its primary fuel source is clean, plentiful, natural gas and uses only a minimal amount of electricity. Through the use of NextAire. products, energy efficiency is boosted in the following ways:

When it's time for cooling, the intelligent system varies engine speed to provide exactly the right amount of refrigerant to perfectly condition the space, reducing energy consumption.

Multi-zone units circulate and condition air allowing for varying temperatures in different rooms, which conserves additional energy.

70% of the original source energy is lost when an electric HVAC system delivers air to buildings. Since the NextAire. Multi-zone GHP uses 80% less electricity than traditional electric HVAC systems; they greatly reduce a building's demand for electricity and reduces its carbon foot print.

Generating electricity at the power plant consumes large amounts of water. On average, 2 gallons of water is used for every kWh (kilowatt hour) produced at a power plant. Since NextAire. uses limited electricity; on average, it can save 68,000 gallons of water every year compared to a similar sized Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning unit.

When compared to standard electric units, noise pollution is reduced when using a NextAire. GHP. Raindrops are measured at 40 decibels and normal conversation at 60. Typical electrical HVAC condensers measure over 75 decibels. NextAire. GHPs register at less than 57 decibels, which is the same in decibels as a normal conversation.

The NextAire. PGHP is environmentally friendly as well. It saves energy, water and leaves a small carbon footprint like the NextAire Multi-zone GHPs do. Natural gas burns cleaner and is better than coal or oil, which is used often to generate electricity. Natural gas, a resource with plentiful supply in the U.S. also limits our reliance on foreign oil products.


Junk Mail…. getting pecked to death by a duck!

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Cathy Rankin here, owner of Temco Air. Just returned from my mailbox with yet another huge pile of JUNK MAIL. Are you as irritated by JUNK MAIL as I am? Honestly, 85% of my mail goes into the recycle bin! It's like getting pecked to death by a duck!  I have utilized every “do not mail” program to stop the catelogs, special just-for-me offers, etc and the JUNK MAIL continues. I may not be able to control the amount of JUNK MAIL I receive but there is one thing I can do…. and here it is

I can ensure TEMCO AIR adheres to the Golden Rule when it comes to JUNK MAIL. We don’t like receiving it, so we don’t send it. Simple as that. For over 10 years Temco has upheld our NO JUNK MAIL philosophy. JUNK MAIL (direct mail, bulk mail…. whatever you call those pesky ads that are mailed to hundreds of thousands of households with hopes that 1% of the recipients will respond to the offer…) wastes paper, postage, and other resources. Temco prefers to spend our resources on providing superior customer service, which results in happy customers who cannot resist telling others about us. That’s marketing the old fashioned way. That’s the Golden Rule. Don’t need postage for THAT, eh?
