  • Efficiency Measure Analysis

The North Country SPCA is a high performance animal shelter for homeless animals in Essex County, New York.  High ventilation rates are critical to the health and happiness of building occupants, human and animal alike, but present a unique challenge in the extreme New York climate.  High efficiency heat recovery ventilators, radiant floor heating, efficient lighting and solar hot water heating all contribute to this highly efficient animal shelter.
