Project Summary

James Farquharson, Buyer/Inventory Manager, Residential & Auxiliary Services ($10,280.00 )

Georgia Southern’s Housing department converted four of the housing complexes’ clubhouses from standard A/C units to occupancy sensor-operated A/C units. We had 24 units installed in a building at Freedom’s Landing for testing. These sensor-activated air conditioning units lower or raise the temperature based on whether the room is occupied or not. With the installation of these units, we were able to reduce energy consumption as well as unit turnover and maintenance as they will be used less frequently and harshly.

Amount Granted
