importance of a hospital hvac system

  1. 1. Importance Of A Hospital Hvac SystemHospital air conditioning and hospital ventilation systems are required to meet higher standardsof performance and serve a greater function than those in standard buildings. A hospital HVACsystem is probably the most vital application of HVAC technology in terms of human health,comfort and safety. Hospital HVAC system design presents unique challenges due to the level ofdemands placed on the it, the heating and cooling loads and the requirements for dependabilityand hygiene. A hospital air conditioning system also has the added challenge of integrating witha number of other complex systems not present in conventional buildings. In an emergencysituation having an HVAC team who understands the unique requirements of a hospital HVACsystem can literally be the difference between life and death for some patients.Hospital Air Conditioning and Hospital VentilationIn any building, part of the function of the HVAC system is to create a comfortable environmentfor occupants. Theres no place where occupants can benefit more from comfort than a hospital.Like in other buildings, hospital air conditioning and hospital ventilation systems are tasked withcontrolling air temperature, air flow, air quality and humidity. In the case of a hospital HVACsystem the importance of maintaining the environment goes beyond comfort. Its essential to thehealing and recovery process. Hospital HVAC systems also work with in close coordination withspecific medical practices. For example operating rooms have specific requirements that includepressurization and higher levels of air filtration in addition to temperature and humidity control.Other functions specific to hospital HVAC systems include:
  2. 2. * Emergencies Management—Hospital HVAC systems help to detect fires and eliminate smokefrom exits and enclosures. Complex engineered smoke control systems may be needed to aid inpressurization control.* Control of Infection—Hospital ventilations systems are one of many tools used to control thespread of disease within a hospital. Because hospitals and other medical facilities have elevatedlevels of pathogens, stringent controls are necessary for the safety of both patients and hospitalstaff.* Control of Hazards—Medical facilities routinely produce fumes and chemicals that presenthealth or safety hazards to patients and staff. Hospital ventilations systems are part of a filtrationsystem that helps to control the concentration of contaminants to keep them at safe levels.Hospital air conditioning and hospital ventilation requirements vary by facility. One thing thatdoesnt vary is the need for an expert HVAC team that understands the critical nature of hospitalHVAC systems.Hillyork provides Hygreen, environment friendly solutions to reduce the energy cost of HVACoperations by 10-25%.
