As previously reported, there has been an active group of parishioners who have endeavored to y document all of our lighting and determine how best to economize using updated lighting technology. They have finalized their work and with the help of a lighting consultant, have determine what lighting changes should be We are begun with the lighting in the sanctuary as that was one of the areas identified as having the greatest energy saving. Further lighting updates in the sanctuary, choir room and offices are in process and you should see the beginning of this work in late April and early May.
New windows were installed in the choir room in early April. New air conditioning for the choir room will be installed in late April. Lighting upgrades for the choir room are scheduled for May. Other window upgrades for the lounge and offices on the second floor of the Education Building are in process and will be installed in mid-May. As these windows are replaced, new window AC units will be installed where older ones were present.
A new insulated door for the Education Building boiler room has been ordered and will be installed in early May.
A replacement for the Chapel AC system (including exterior ductwork) has been ordered and will be installed in late April.
The fire suppression system for the kitchen hood was updated wired to the fire alarm system and now meets code.
As funds become available, we will continue with replacing windows on the third floor of the Education building, thus completing all windows in this building, hopefully by the end of 2107.
