The Viking Multiplex & Curling Club underwent an energy efficiency retrofit in 2013, including mechanical and electrical upgrades.
The existing atmospheric combustion furnaces were upgraded to 94% efficiency condensing models, resulting in natural gas savings of 100 GJ/year. Three programmable thermostats were also installed throughout the facility, allowing energy consumption to match occupant usage patterns. Electrical upgrades included the conversion of all T12 fluorescent tube lighting to T8 fixtures. As a result of these upgrades, the project is yielding savings of $1,690, 164 GJ, and 10 tonnes of CO2 annually.
