According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a building is wasted. Contaminants in the air ducts can cause it to operate harder and shorten the life of the HVAC system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system can still be susceptible to contaminants through normal use.
Happy Healthcare Engineer’s Week to all healthcare professionals! In honor of this year’s Healthcare Engineer Week, we interviewed our Healthcare Department professional, Alan Inbody.
1. What is Healthcare Engineer’s Week?
National Healthcare Facilities and Engineering Week, is observed annually during the fourth week in October, and is sponsored by the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association. This is when we would like to recognize the Facilities and Engineering Department and staff for the important role they play in keeping the hospital safe and operational.

THE IMPORTANCE OF AIR BALANCING IN GROW HOUSES
Many residential and commercial forced air duct systems are typically not properly engineered or balanced to distribute air where it is needed; causing some rooms and/or spaces to become too hot or too cold. Airflow balancing systematically moves air around to increase comfort level for its occupants, plants, and to increase a HVAC (Heating-Ventilation-Air Conditioning) system’s efficiency.
