Three of the eight heating

It could be a long, cold winter, but the public can rest assured the heating system at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre is being well maintained.

Recently, three of the eight heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre were replaced by Rimbey Heating Ltd.

Company owner Rod Challand said two engineered air units and a Lennox air unit have now been installed in the facility.

The air unit which was put over the auditorium weighed 6,000 pounds and a 90-ton crane was needed to lift it into place, said Challand.

The unit in the lobby was slightly smaller, but required more work to install as some roofing also needed to be replaced to put it into place.

This spring Rimbey town council unanimously voted in favor of awarding the tender for the HVAC replacement and coil cleaning of the community centre to Rimbey Heating Ltd. for $139,715.

They also voted unanimously to award the tender for the building controls upgrade to Direct Digital Controls Ltd. at the tendered price of $28,865.

Council has budgeted $180,000 for the replacement of the first three of the eight HVAC systems requiring replacement.
