The Westover Metropolitan Airport's 30,400 square-foot hangar needed a heating and ventilation system. The ventilation system was required to bring the hanger up to code. The system design had to not only meet the needs, but also had to provide energy efficiency.
An infrared system was selected to minimize the heating of the entire volume of air in the hangar. The heaters were positioned in strategic locations to maximize effectiveness. A carbon monoxide detection system was incorporated into the ventilation system in order to minimize the intake of outdoor air during the winter months. An automatic temperature control system was designed to co-ordinate and balance all components.
