Kwawkiutl Wagalus School, Port Hardy
This installation was completed in the Winter of 2015/ 2016.
Two rooftop HEAT PUMP units were installed for the Gymnasium and for the Classroom side.
Back up electric heaters are also installed in the packaged units.
Units are complete with Outdoor air economizers.
Units are logic controlled and monitored by a DDC controls company in Nanaimo.
One Venmar HRV unit was installed on the rooftop for air exchange.
The weather on Northern Vancouver Island, BC, accommodates the operations of an Air to Air heat pump very well. As Port Hardy is on the water it has milder temperatures than inland, the moist marine air allows for sensible and latent heat extraction.
This new school boasts an excellent use of local wood to fit in with the natural surroundings. White tail deer run freely through the yard along with the occasional bear and cougar.
