The Goal: To Realize Substantial Healthcare Energy Savings and Regulatory Compliance
Leaking air ducts can more than double fan energy use, and increase heating and cooling costs significantly. According to ASHRAE, a 20% leakage in an exhaust system can increase fan energy use by 95%. Duct leakage problems are particularly acute in hospitals. The health care setting is one of the most challenging and high stakes environments for heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The benefits of duct sealing in healthcare facilities is the topic of an upcoming free webinar.
Resuscitate Leaky Ductwork for Big Healthcare Energy Savings & Regulatory Compliance
Sponsors: EMA, Aeroseal
When: Dec. 6, 1:30 Eastern Standard Time
Registration Link: aeroseal.com/com/duct-sealing-ecm/ema2018/
Presenters: Rob Hallewick, Business Development, Nerva Energy; Amit Gupta, CEO Aeroseal; Rick Papetti, Product and Application Manager, Aeroseal
- Understand both the clear and the not-so-obvious ways in which duct leakage impacts overall energy usage.
- Learn about current available duct sealing methods, including the pros and cons of each.
- Discover how engineers at a Canada Health hospital facility implemented a new approach to duct sealing and solved a previously “unsolvable” HVAC issue, while realizing nearly $60,000 in annual energy savings.
- Learn about other medical facilities that have realized big energy savings and regulatory compliance through effective duct sealing.
Continuing Education Credits: Course is approved for 1 AIA LU/HSW (Certificates will be provided to attendees).
Aeroseal® is a provider of duct sealing technology that seals leaks from inside the duct system using a patented non-toxic aerosol mist developed at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory with partial funding from the U.S. Department of Energy. The process has proven to be the most effective, affordable and viable method for sealing leaky ductwork systems in commercial buildings. Once leaks are sealed, fan speed can be reduced dramatically – thereby reducing payback time and increasing energy savings and regulatory compliance for a wide variety of commercial institutions.
The Energy Management Association is dedicated to providing education, training and certification to energy management professionals on behalf of building owners. Its Energy Management Professional Certification (EMP) features a unique commissioning-based curriculum that maximizes energy efficiency and optimization of building systems.
