Building a 2-story HVAC system

Building a 2-story HVAC system for a church in the sky…awesome!

Modernizing any large church’s HVAC system may cause some to sweat. Especially a church as unique as the Chicago Temple – a towering, 90-year-old architectural masterpiece. But we jumped at the opportunity.

And we created the largest air handlers…ever.

Working closely with a team of designers, architects and engineers, TEC and Racan-Carrier designed, built and placed the 20-foot-high system precisely 23 stories up.

But enough small talk. The numbers speak volumes.

  • 20 weeks to manufacture 30 air handling modules
  • 16 tractor-trailers to transport the 30 modules
  • 13 tractor-trailers of parts = 1 massive crane
  • 2-story custom air handling unit assembled 23 stories up
  • 48 hrs to assemble the entire unit
  • 16ft2 air duct
  • 235,000 CFM - capacity of 200 large homes
  • 4,743,000 lb reduction in carbon emission/year (footprint of 118 Americans)
  • $185,000 approximate annual energy savings
  • 50% reduction in total energy usage
