Trane controls and equipment were chosen by the Christina School District when they built a new Delaware School for the Deaf to replace the existing Sterck School. The project was designed to utilize a hybrid central geothermal system; the first in the country. The system utilized geothermal wells that served the (2) Trane RTWD “heat pump” chillers. These chillers, through their specialized condenser water control, also provided the system with hot water for heating in the winter.
The new school provided students with a 21st century learning environment that addressed their specific learning needs such as sound attenuation. The installed systems also provided efficiencies through the latest design technology, and were environmentally responsible.
