Iles Des Chenes Arena
Mechanical Engineer – Laufer Enterprises
The Rural Municipality of Ritchot approached Southern Comfort Mechanical to be part of a team focused on installing a district geothermal system in the town of Ile Des Chenes. The proposal was to tie the Arena, Fire Hall and Community Centre into a common ground loop. The benefit of this system is that it provides the ability to transfer heat from one building to another via the common ground loop, thereby significantly increasing the system coefficient of performance.
The system needed to be designed to cool the ice, heat the bleachers, heat sections of floor and provide heating and air conditioning for the common areas in the building. In order to accomplish this, the system was designed both withWaterFurnace water-to-water geothermal units, and WaterFurnace water-to-air units. This unit is tied into a common vertical ground loop, shared with the Community Fire Hall and Community Centre.← Back to Commercial Projects
