Tour - Mechanical Equipment

Animal Topics  Virtual Tour: Mechanical Equipment
(Animals, Animal Control, Animal Shelters, Animals in Disaster, Animals in Public Places,   
 Animal Friendly Program,  Animal Ownership, Animal Bites) 

AC

Those shelters that don't use natural ventilation need
heating and air conditioning. In order to minimize odors,
all the air in the shelter should be completely replaced
with fresh air every six minutes.

Water Heater

Shelters use a lot of hot water for
cleaning and sanitizing, thereby
requiring one or more large water heaters.
