Riley Robb Heat Recovery Energy Conservation Project Saves $35,000 & 61 Tons CO2e Annually

New glycol loop and coils where installed to transfer heat between the exhaust air and outside air in a nominal 20,000 cfm 100% outside air laboratory ventilation system north wing...


The project is very exciting because it is the first heat recovery ever retrofit to a building at Cornell. Our ECI team did a great job, and we have great hopes to retrofit further lab buildings based on the success at Riley Robb.”

Approximately 40% of all heat previously lost will be recovered reducing both peak and annual heating needs. Peak cooling reduction will help slow the need for future cooling capacity.
