Capital Plaza Hotel: Saved $24,000 per year while eliminating cold spots and mold problems

To say that the owners of the Capital Plaza Hotel in Kentucky were energy conservation skeptics would be an understatement. “If it worked, everyone would be doing it” was a familiar sentiment. Today, however, they are true believers. With the help of Aeroseal, the 10 - story hotel and convention center, in the heart of the state’s capitol, has just been Energy Star certified. Owners estimate that duct sealing and other “low hanging” energy saving measures have reduced operating costs by $110,000 a year. Sealing leaks also fixed bathroom exhaust issues, eliminating chronic mold and mildew problems. Cold spots have been replaced with even temperatures throughout the facilities.
