Medical center receives Trane energy efficiency award for green HVAC construction
Reducing annual energy and operational costs at Hardin Medical Center in Savannah, Tenn., by 25 percent is something to cheer, according to Trane.
In recognition of the facility’s energy efficiency and sustainability, Trane was to present the hospital with an Energy Efficiency Leader Award Aug. 20. The upgraded health care facility also received an $11,500 rebate from the Tennessee Valley Authority for reducing its load on the electrical grid.
Improvements included better cooling and humidity control, new pneumatic building controls for the HVAC system used in the baby delivery area, and new boilers throughout the facility.
“We’re pleased that we can provide a more comfortable environment for patients and a more satisfying workplace for physician and staff,” said Nick Lewis, chief executive officer at the hospital.
