Project Profile: Marymount Congregational Home


The Marymount Congregational Home (Marymount) in Garfield, Ohio, is a 78,000-square-foot building that houses the Sisters of St. Joseph (Sisters), Third Order of St. Francis, administrative offices and a child care center. Marymount spent over $9,000 a month in cooling and heating costs. When the building underwent a renovation to convert Marymount’s living quarters into 28 apartments, the Sisters made sure an upgraded HVAC system was included.

The Sisters wanted a system that would reduce energy consumption and utility costs and was “something earth-friendly,” said Sister Joyce, Hollkamp, Marymount’s business/facilities coordinator. They ultimately chose our Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning system.

The energy savings were immediately apparent. Marymount saved roughly $80,000 in cooling and heating costs over the course of the year.
