450 Lexington Avenue
Project location: New York City, NY
Property size: 30,000 sqft
Situation: Constructed in 1992, 450 Lexington Ave. is a premier Class A office building, exemplifying an understated elegance while maintaining a commanding presence in Midtown Manhattan. The HVAC system at this commercial building began to show its age-- an inevitable situation. After 15 years of serving the Class A office building, the fan's VFD neared the end of its lifecycle. Quotes for repairs to the 40 HP inline axial fan ranged from $7,000 - $10,000. Any like-for-like replacement would require significant effort by the facilities team. The circumstances forced the facilities team to decide between re-investing in repairing the current system or upgrading to something engineered for the future.
Q-PAC's FS1 Fan System combines performance and energy savings in a reliable, polished product.
Q-PAC's Customer Support won the day. As the pilot project for potentially replacing all 30 units over the next three years, the installer commented on the reliability of Customer Support throughout the process-- confirming the team's confidence in the system and application. The modular FS1 streamlined the installation process. Supplier rebates totaled $10,000, generating immediate savings. Once operational, the FS1 decreased total energy consumption costs, year-over-year, by $7,000 - $9,000. With the installation of a Q-PAC system, the commercial building optimized its overall functionality for the future.
