Although the author learned health-care HVAC the way many designers do, today he thinks a lot differently, and he believes it is time for the health-care HVAC industry to do the same. This article summarizes some of what led to the change in his views....More
The operating room (OR) typically is among the greatest sources of revenue for a hospital and, thus, kept as busy as reasonably possible. It should come as no surprise, then, that ORs account for a significant portion of a hospital’s overall energy use....More
With so many air-filter technologies and performance-rating methods, it is essential design engineers and operating personnel understand the differences between them to make fully informed decisions regarding air-filtration strategy. This article discusses recent research into filter performance and shares insights that can be gleaned from that research....More
As part of a multiyear renovation, Grant Towers at Northern Illinois University received upgrades of its mechanical systems. The triangular shape of the 50-plus-year-old buildings presented a significant challenge....More

An engineering study was completed to compare a water-cooled centrifugal chiller with a waterside economizer, to a single water-cooled magnetic bearing centrifugal chiller operating in inverted duty - the YORK YMC2 chiller. In this webinar the results of the study will be presented, summarizing the differences between the two options in terms of chiller plant design, first costs, operating costs, and ownership (maintenance, footprint, and controls).
Attendees of this webinar will learn:...More
Optimizing thermal efficiency across the enterprise data center using automated control routines and new ways to monitor and manage remote IT spaces as the demand for edge computing cooling capacity increases....More
Insulation can make or break the performance and longevity of a chilled water or variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system. This webinar covers everything an engineer needs to know before committing a client to a specific insulation strategy, including the stresses imposed on these piping systems and how various insulation options differ in terms of ease of installation, vulnerability to moisture, and more....More
