Geothermal HVAC: An In-Depth & Behind-the-Scenes Tour

August 25, 2011 - 7:00 to 8:30 pm

$45 Per Person

Would you like to know more about tunnels beneath Unity Temple and learn how the latest "green" technology will be used to heat and cool this National Historic Landmark?

Join Mark Nussbaum, mechanical engineer and geothermal expert, on an extended tour of Unity Temple's forthcoming ground source heat pump system.

Guests will learn about the building's original 1908 heating system -- which never functioned properly -- and the current system, and will view drawings and plans for the new, cutting-edge heating and cooling system that will utilize parts of Wright's underground tunnel system. You will see spaces not available on regular tours, including the original boiler and fan rooms, access points of the tunnels that zig-zag through the building, and hidden mechanical chases. You will learn about the new geothermal system and see the areas where it will be installed, including the field for the 650-foot deep wells.

This tour is ideal for anyone interested in green building technology and retrofitting historic buildings. All proceeds benefit the restoration of Unity Temple. Space is limited. Please purchase tickets in advance here.
