Greenwood Memorial Bath House is one of the state's leading training facilities for swimmers, but a lack of funding and a deterioration of the building have caused the bathhouse to become highly energy inefficient. This project used data logging thermometers and infrared temperature readers as well as fluid modeling software to suggest energy saving methods that could be implemented in order to save money heating the bathhouse and pool. A multiphase project is proposed using solar energy, insulating measures, and energy recovery devices to save money on heating fuel and to decrease the use of fossil fuels and electricity.
