Retrofit Case Study: Cambridge HTHV Heaters vs Direct Fired Recirculation


In Fairmont, WV, a manufacturer with a 160,000 ft2 building faced a challenge. They were using direct-fired-recirculation units to heat their facility, but this resulted in uneven temperatures, high operating costs, cold dock areas, and maintenance headaches. They knew they needed a solution that would not only reduce their energy consumption and carbon emissions but also save on annual operational costs. That's when they decided to turn to the Cambridge S-Series.

Choosing the Cambridge S-Series proved to be a game-changer for the manufacturer. The Cambridge system provided more even temperatures, warmer dock areas, lower operating costs, and lowers maintenance costs. Their total operating cost with the Cambridge system was only $0.65/ft2, which is significantly lower than the previous operating cost of $1.12/ft2. What's more, the Cambridge system used less total energy, resulting in a remarkable 42% reduction in carbon emissions, or 410 fewer metric tons of CO2 per year.

Thanks to their choice of going with the Cambridge S-Series, the manufacturer can now enjoy annual savings of up to $1.54 million over 20 years. Cambridge units are built to last, with low maintenance needs, making them a reliable choice for building owners. By switching to Cambridge S-Series, this manufacturer in Fairmont, WV has been able to , reduce their carbon footprint and save a significant amount of money on their annual operational costs
