Healthcare uses a variety of equipment from standard building infrastructure [HVAC, Refrigeration, UPS, Generators and Air Quality Sensors] to sophisticated medical equipment [X-Ray machines, Lab test equipment, CT-SCAN and so on]. They cost millions of dollars in investment, and and even more to run and maintain.The biggest challenge is to monitor and keep these equipments in the best working condition to keep them available at all times for crucial life saving procedures.
What should we do?
There is a need to minimize their energy consumption, reduce wasteful usage and maximize their life with preventive care. When not in use every bit of energy used, including the surrounding air-conditioning & lighting systems, should be optimized for maximum cost efficiency, comfort and health. Using air-quality monitors to help keep the space healthier and safer has never been more important.
