RECOVERED HEAT ENERGY

The Maintenance Facility garage is heated through a radiant floor system in which tubing is looped throughout the concrete floor. The thermal image above shows the actual tubing which exists beneath the floor. The hot water comes from a hot water loop running throughout the District campus which is warmed from waste heat, a byproduct of our biodigester. The biodigester generates electricity and heat from solid waste. Some of this waste heat makes its way to the maintenance facility via a campus hot water loop. 

The hot water loop is also used to produce hot water for all of the sinks in the building.
