Advanced Monitoring and HVAC Services for Florida Hospitals

  1. 1. Advanced Monitoring and HVAC Services for Florida HospitalsIndoor air quality (IAQ) in a hospital impacts almost everything from the health ofpatients, to performance of sophisticated medical equipment, overall operationalefficiency of the facility and cost of operation. In a cancer care hospital or medicalcenter, where staff is dealing with compromised patient immune systems, regularHVAC services are particularly essential for maintaining good IAQ. High qualityventilation and filtration is required to ensure optimal performance of your Floridahospital’s HVAC system. In addition, a Measurement and Verification (M&V)program using sub-metering will provide accurate data to determine HVAC usageby medical department across various buildings within hospital premises.Florida’s unique weather conditions are very conducive to mold growth, spread ofallergens and unhealthy humidity levels. Add to that the typical environment in ahospital and you have a whole spectrum of bacteria, toxins, air-borne pathogens,hazardous−additional concerns waste, and so on. Implementing an advancedmonitoring system along with regular HVAC services is a wise choice for Orlandoand Melbourne hospitals.If left unattended your hospital HVAC system could develop several issues suchas:• Circulation of biological and volatile organic compound containments throughoutthe hospital• Further risk to patient immune systems, especially in cancer hospitals• Reduced efficiency and durability of diagnostic equipment, advanced treatmentdevices and other medical aid tools• Increasing energy costs due to dirty filters and overrun compressors• Immense repair costs to fix entire HVAC systems or vital pieces that could havebeen saved with proper servicing• Risk or irreparable damage to in-house data center due to overheated computersystemsIn order to ensure patient safety and reduce operating expenses, Melbournehospitals can implement advanced IAQ and energy assessment technology to

These wireless applications can diagnoseand benchmark the comfort, energy and IAQ performance levels throughout thehospital; ultimately saving up to 20% in energy costs.Florida Indoor Air Quality Issues in HospitalsMelbourne, Florida hospitals have several indoor air quality areas that must beaddressed on a daily basis:• Preventing toxins, bacteria and containments from breeding and circulatingthroughout the facility• Integrating HVAC elements into the hospital design to enhance the indoor airquality• Identifying and removing containments from inside the hospital environment,thereby improving indoor environmental quality (IEQ)In addition, Florida hospitals must also keep a close eye on energy expenses,creating a balancing act for many hospital managers.Here’s an example of how this balance was achieved at a New York cancerhospital. The hospital manager knew that the facility could save significant moneyby installing the chiller plant cooling method, but had no way to track itsperformance or determine its effectiveness.The hospital manager noted several issues such as:• Free cooling not being used to maximum capacity• Plant performance was not being tracked in real time• Chillers were surging due to the lack of proper loadingBy installing a real-time web based observation resource, UtiliVisor, the hospitalwas able to monitor utility use, HVAC control systems, alarms, equipment and alsocalculate total resource operating costs. The hospital was thus, able to accomplishseveral critical goals:

For the initial cost outlay of $217,000 thesystem paid for itself in less than 4 months, proving to be the most effective way tomaintain and monitor HVAC operations of this magnitude.Choosing a Melbourne Air Conditioning Service ContractorYour Melbourne air conditioning service contractor should be more than anancillary service company, particularly if you are a hospital. A partnership with anexperienced air conditioning services company will help maintain IAQ andmonitor energy expenses.Before partnering with a Melbourne air conditioning service company, look for afew vital differentiators:• Has a trusted reputation for Melbourne, Florida hospital air conditioner design,installation and maintenance• Provides IAQ validation and reporting• Is trained in HVAC measurement verification and sub-metering• Presents a detailed energy saving strategy and ongoing scheduled hospitalmaintenance plan• Employs licensed and trained professionals who can offer dynamic solutions toimproved air quality and contamination control• Guarantees 24/7 service repair response• Offers prompt disaster recovery response before and after events
