A TRAK District GeoExchange-based HVAC System provides heating and cooling for various building clusters, pools, hot tubs, and multiple buildings.
Networked central plants as part of an efficient distributed district energy system with custom-built TRAK water-to-water heat pumps provide 750-ton HVAC capacity to the property. The plants are integrated through TRAK DDC Energy Management Controls that have complete remote access and monitoring capability. The geoexchange system features horizontal and vertical boreholes in rock, heat exchange with the lake, and various snow pool deck and snowmelt features.
The energy-efficient systems allow the resort to operate at low operating costs. Pools are generally heated as a free by-product of space cooling.
