HEJ webinar this month will tackle undertaking hospital HVAC upgrades

Registration is now open for the first in a new series of webinars – which takes place on 20 July – to be presented by leading product and technology suppliers to the sector in association with Health Estate Journal over coming months.

Presented by Jason Cox, Energy Upgrades leader for the UK at Armstrong Fluid Technology, the inaugural HEJ webinar will take place at 11.00 am (BST) on Monday 20 July, and will be titled ‘Balancing energy savings and HVAC system performance with patient comfort in hospital and care home facilities’. In it, the speaker will explain how, with the right specialist expertise and help, hospitals and other healthcare facilities can upgrade and improve their existing HVAC systems’ performance – simultaneously cutting their carbon footprint and lowering their energy bills – without significant disruption to clinical activities. 

Armstrong Fluid Technology says: “Since the introduction of Streamline Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) in 2019, saving money and reducing carbon emissions is now an essential element for large organisations to report on. With the largest volume of energy in buildings consumed by heating, ventilation, and cooling systems, this seems the obvious place to start with a view to upgrading technology, both to improve performance and achieve cost-efficiencies. However, the prospect of a replacing large items of mechanical equipment except when absolutely necessary can be daunting for many organisations, but especially for a mission-critical facility like a hospital. How, for example, does an Estates & Facilities team balance the need to upgrade HVAC systems with the requirement to minimise disruption to clinical services and continuity of care on a busy acute hospital site while any improvements are carried out?

“As a leading global player, with a long heritage in HVAC equipment and systems, Armstrong Fluid Technology has specialist knowledge and core competences in heat transfer, fluid flow, demand-based control, and digitilisation. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how, using these capabilities, we can offer a unique approach to energy saving, helping hospitals and care homes with strategies that enable them to intelligently upgrade HVAC equipment to deliver optimised system performance, resulting in significant carbon / cost savings from day one, without impacting services or patient comfort.”

At the presentation’s end, attendees will have the chance to ask questions during a live ‘Q&A’ session.
