Turn Cycle Solutions conducted an energy assessment walk-through of the Church of the Good Shepherd with Rise Enginering and Lightec Inc. The team produced a comprehensive modeling and audit report outlining various energy inefficiencies findings, which accounted for approximately 31 hours of modeling.
Once the church was made aware of the different inefficiencies, it elected to move forward with some of the measures that Turn Cycle Solutions suggested to increase the building’s energy efficiency. TCS assisted the general contractor, Schroeder Construction, by conducting all the insulation requirements for the property. Air sealing and blown-in cellulose insulation were executed in the attic of the parish, day care, and function room. These measure brought the attics up to the current energy efficient building code of R49.
Over 65% of the Church of the Good Shepherd project was paid for through rebates from both the Liberty Utilities’ Weatherization Program and the Department of Energy’s BetterBuildings energy efficiency program.
