One of the largest energy users in a building is the Heating/Ventilation/Air Conditioning unit or HVAC. It is the device responsible for keeping a building at the correct temperature and maintaining air flow. Every building has it. But not all HVAC units are energy efficient. Those that are not are costing its users money and wasting energy.
The City of Lynwood recently announced it will upgrade HVAC units in city-owned facilities with high efficiency units. The upgrades will be provided to the City at no cost. The new energy efficient units will not only leave a smaller carbon footprint, it will save the City taxpayer dollars.
A total of 16 HVAC units will be replaced in the following locations:
The HVAC upgrades are in addition to the lighting upgrades to city-owned facilities and streetlights. This is just one part of an effort to make and keep Lynwood a green city. Lynwood recently earned a Beacon Silver Spotlight Award from the Institute for Local Government for toward addressing climate change, promoting energy efficiency and creating more sustainable communities.
As stewards of the taxpayers’ money, the City of Lynwood is doing all it can to make sure tax dollars are spent wisely. The HVAC units did not cost the City, but the labor to install and maintain the units do and that is made possible by Measure PS funds.
