College Auto Sash Retrofit is Still a Big Success Five Years Later

The Science Building classroom laboratory project retrofitted 12 chemical fume hoods with TEL VAV and TEL Auto Sash controllers. The local make-up air units (4 total) were volumetrically controlled. TEL VAV controllers were also installed in 3 single kitchen hoods.

The upgraded VAV systems remain very safe, utility costs are reduced, and the infrastructure is more manageable.

“All the systems are working great and saving us money. Also all the flow alarms work properly and are active and in use vs being turned off.”
