How do you cool a ballpark and 46,000 red-hot fans? Houston does it by putting a clear-span dome on their new Harris County Stadium and applying the efficient energies of modern cooling systems. Friday, April 9, the Houston Astros inaugurate the new indoor field with an historic exhibition game against the New York Yankees.
Gas Energy supplies 4,200 tons of the total 6,600 ton cooling system.
Outside, temperature and humidity can race each other for the 100 mark. Inside, when the stadium is packed, Gas cooling will help provide a crisp, 72 atmosphere. Why was Gas Energy chosen for a large share of this important job? For the same reasons Gas provides 80% of the cooling at the New York World’s Fair: flexibility, economy, reliability.
Whenever you have a big cooling (or heating) job, think of Gas first. Call your local Gas Company Sales Engineer.
