Implementing individual heating zones can help hospitals achieve significant energy savings

Creating individual heating zones for hospitals and care facilities can help them achieve significant energy savings, especially considering the fact that energy bills are among the most significant overheads for organizations in this category.

Hospitals, which are open and operate 24/7, consume considerable amounts of energy. According to the 2007 Commercial Building Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS), major fuels (electricity, natural gas, fuel oil, and district heat) consumed by large hospitals totalled 458 trillion Btu, which is 5.5 percent of the total delivered energy used by the commercial sector in 2007.

In order to reduce energy consumption and save money on operating costs, many hospitals have been looking to replace existing HVAC systems with more energy-efficient equipment.

When undergoing both new construction or renovating existing buildings, total life-cycle cost of the products, application, and ongoing operating expenses are always a very important part of the decision-making process. In fact, controlling operational costs and ensuring a good return on investment are crucial factors for most hospitals.

HeatSave programmable wireless thermostatic valves – the fast and easy way to create individual heating zones

The HeatSave wireless thermostatic valves (TRVs) can help customers slash their energy bills by up to an impressive 30 percent by allowing them to thoroughly control the heating patterns for every single one of their radiators.

Since radiators are individually controlled, the HeatSave valves enable users to maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in those areas that are not used for longer periods of time.

Additionally, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves also provide an automatic exercising feature when unused for 7 days, whose purpose is to minimise seizing of radiator valves in warmer months.
