Overhauling the old HVAC system at Central Elementary School, Dodge City, Kansas, ushered in a new era of energy savings, cost savings and comfort.

The district was so pleased with the project and its positive effects on student experience that they selected the same Mitsubishi Electric equipment for another school in the district – Wilroads Elementary School. Wilroads also earned ENERGY STAR certification and saw lowered utility bills and improved student experience.
