Last week, my team and I were called to a hospital to check on the system as the temperatures in the emergency department ED were soaring up to almost match the temperature outside in the summer heat.
This was not only uncomfortable, but it would also have been unsafe for the patients and employees.
The heat pump was 20 years old and quite aged. As an experienced air conditioning expert, my team and I determined that the hospital needed a replacement. The components of the unit had wear and were also aged and thus could no longer function optimally. We visited the HVAC supplier where there were numerous HVAC brands, with the help of the a/c representative, we were able to select a ductless HVAC for the hospital. We also got an air quality system to improve whole home air purification for the patients and staff. It took my very capable team of cooling workmen a period of a day, but we had to work well through the night since the ED ran round the clock. Since the hospital now had a vent-free system, they did not need to be contracting an a/c worker to perform the air duct cleaning. The indoor quality of the emergency department was now top quality thanks to the fast work of the technicians. In addition, we recommended to the maintenance department to ensure they schedule air conditioning maintenance on the system every year. We also provided the hospital with the local contractor’s contacts in case they needed any assistance with the system or any information on the various heat and AC products in the market. The hospital experience was amazing for me because we did work under immense pressure but the job was extremely fulfilling. We were glad to serve our first responders.
