HVAC Capital Campaign

The Center for the Arts of Homer, built in 1894, is an historic facility on the State Historic Register, which served for over 100 years as the First Baptist Church of Homer.

Last winter it was discovered by our HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) service providers that the existing boiler system has entered its “terminal stages.” Because of the building’s age, and despite extensive and ongoing renovations over the years, this grave news has served as an inspiration to install a new and improved HVAC system.

The new HVAC system will provide for ventilated and sanitized airflow, more efficient heating in the winter, and air conditioning in the warmer months.

Our goal is to update our facility’s HVAC system with a modern and efficient system to serve the Center in every season and for many decades to come.

The new HVAC system will provide for ventilated and sanitized airflow, more efficient heating in the winter, and air conditioning in the warmer months.

Will you help us meet our goal?

Phase One
Phase One is nearly complete with the addition of a new boiler system in the theater side of the facility. K&B Plumbing & Heating completed the work just as the snow and cold began to fly, with preparation support from Complete Construction Concepts. The project is designed by Tim Weise, who brought years of design experience in concert with the contractors to make this possible.

Thank you to all of our donors who have made this possible!

Phase Two
Phase two will bring us to the Karen Sager Community Room to install a new HVAC system that will provide heating, ventilation, air conditioning to this part of the facility. Preparation work is currently underway from Complete Construction Concepts.

Phase Three
Phase three brings us back to the theater side of the building to install Air Conditioning, Ventilation, Air Purification and Dehumidification.
