Largest water-source heat pump system for a school in Berks County and possibly the state.
The Fleetwood Area High School is a new facility housing students from grades 9 to 12. The building contains a 400 seat auditorium, a gymnasium and auxiliary gymnasium, a library, cafeteria and classrooms to accommodate 700 students.
Consolidated Engineers designed the HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems for the facility. The HVAC system is a water-source heat pump system with heat recovery. This energy efficient system pretreats outside air, controls humidity and allows the school the flexibility of heating and cooling different areas of the building simultaneously. The system installed at Fleetwood is the largest school-installed water-source heat pump system in Berks County and possibly the state.
