II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: The HVAC system was installed in 1999 and should be scheduled for replacement. It consists of roof mounted packaged units and window mounted evaporative coolers. The system is not energy efficient and has reached the end of its expected and useful life. Also, the air conditioner compressor is not functioning. This project would provide for installation of a new HVAC system and cleaning of the existing duct work and grilles. The new system shall be designed to significantly reduce electrical and natural gas usage in order to comply with the 2009 IECC and ASHRAE 90.1 and to reduce utility costs. This project includes removal and disposal of the existing HVAC units and all required connections to utilities.
17. Project Justification: The system was purchased in the late 1990's and has reached its reasonable life span. The system continually fails and repairs become difficult as replacement parts are difficult to locate. When the system fails it usually does so when the strain is at it highest which is usually in the hottest and coldest times of the year. When it does fail, it places clients and staff in uncomfortable atmospheres and result in complaints from clients to the Agency.
18. Project Background Information: This project or a portion thereof was previously recommended in the FCA report dated 06/28/2006. It has been amended accordingly to reflect conditions observed during the most recent survey date of 12/15/2017.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: HVAC system
19b. Year existing equipment was installed: 1999
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: Unknown
19d. Model of existing equipment: Unknow
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? Unknown
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? Unknown
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): The HVAC system will continue to fail and will continue to be more difficult to repair due to lack of replacement parts available.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
22. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): In early 2019 when the weather was the coldest, the system failed and the temperature in the residential homes ranged between 55 and 58 degrees. The agency had to purchase additional space heaters and the clients had to sleep on mats in common areas due to client safety of issues of having space heaters in their bedrooms.
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
23a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? No
23b. Explain:
23c. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? Unknown
23d. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 07/01/2019
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? Weather seasons.
