Smart HVAC Equipment Donation is a Gift that Keeps on Giving.
HVAC Donation from HTS Texas Will Help New QuestCare Clinic Save up to 70% on Energy Costs.



HTS Texas, the Texas partner of one of the largest independent commercial HVAC manufacturers' representatives in North America, recently donated $34,000 in high-performance Daikin Rebel HVAC equipment to QuestCare Clinic: a Watermark Community Church Partnership in Dallas. The clinic opened Sept. 9, 2013 and will serve underinsured and uninsured patients.

HTS Texas teamed with Bury Partners and United Mechanical to deliver the top-of-the line equipment, as well as mechanical engineering services and installation to allow the clinic to allocate more funds to client care and spend less on air conditioning costs.

“QuestCare Clinic offers acute medical care, health care education and other resources to the underinsured and uninsured people in Dallas and we expect about 10,000 patient visits per year,” said Jeff Ward, director of external focus at Watermark Community Church and vice president of the board of directors for QuestCare Clinic. “The generous contributions from church members and the local business community have made the Clinic a reality.”

HTS Texas provided equipment valued at $34,000, including a 10-ton Daikin Rebel rooftop VAV unit, three Twin City exhaust fans, five Krueger fan powered VAV terminal units, 70 Krueger Air Distribution units and an HTS Building Automation System.

“Dallas has one of the highest percentages of uninsured and underinsured residents, and we jumped at the opportunity to team up with Bury Partners and United Mechanical to contribute to this great cause,” said Victor McBride, senior account manager at HTS Texas. “To maximize our gift, we provided the award-winning Daikin Rebel unit instead of donating standard low-cost equipment. It will provide continuous, unparalleled savings of 60-70% on HVAC energy costs over traditional rooftop units and will allow the clinic to use the money to help many more patients every year.”

Daikin’s Rebel units are the first and only solution to date to meet the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) High Performance Rooftop Unit Challenge. According to the DOE, participating HVAC manufacturers need to satisfy integrated energy efficiency rating (IEER) of 18 or higher with a 50 to 60 percent reduction in energy use over current standards. As a result, the Rebel system offers the lowest total cost of ownership with complete system payback in as little as two years.

United Mechanical served as the HVAC contractor installing the Daikin Rebel system provided by HTS Texas.

“The energy saving Daikin Rebel system will be hugely beneficial to the viability of the clinic,” said Brian Chester, executive vice president of United Mechanical. “We were honored to have the opportunity to contribute alongside HTS, The Beck Group, Bury Partners, Watermark Community Church and all the other donors and contractors to provide such a valuable community medical resource for those in need.”
