The museum was in need for renovation and improvements and in 2015, the decision was made to replace to the 60 year-old boiler, radiant heating system with an upgrade to a system that was more energy efficient and with a sophisticated energy management system.
This museum has a unique and special history and to do any renovations in this exceptional landmark it would require highly experienced professionals. There were several desired traits of the new system. It must be quiet. It must have zoning, it must provide simultaneous heating AND cooling, providing for comfort in all areas of the building. It also must allow for growth as there are several additions planned for expansion of the museum.
This would seem to be a tall order. . . . .
