Condominium – Mechanical Pump Room, CHICAGO, IL
The installation of a new domestic booster pump system in the condominium’s mechanical pump room provided exceptional value to the client:
- Energy rebate of $3,000
- Increased building efficiency and reliability
- Reduced energy consumption and costs
- Favorable payback period for the project
- Seamless operation to provide a quiet, comfortable environment for residents
The mechanical pump room located in the client’s downtown Chicago condominium needed a mechanical upgrade. The client sought a comprehensive solution that would achieve reduced operating costs and address the disruptive noise and vibration that residents frequently encounter.
ASHRAE’s guidelines specify that base-mounted pumps have an equipment life expectancy of 20 years. Based on Team Mechanical’s site review, the existing base- mounted pump system was original to the building, dating back to 1968, and had far exceeded its useful life. Team Mechanical recommended the client’s existing domestic booster pump be replaced.
The scope of work for this project included furnishing and installing one new variable speed duplex domestic booster pump system with new water piping and remote control panel. The newly installed pump will provide efficient water distribution to building occupants without any noise disruption. Significant operating cost savings were achieved combined with a one-time energy rebate, resulting in a favorable payback period for the project.
