Natural Gas Cooling. Doctors Like It. Accountants Love It.
As a rule, hospitals have to maintain ideal temperatures and humidity levels in the operating rooms for the safety of thei I' patients, as well as the comfort of the doctors and staff.
At Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, engineers have tailored a system for a suite of operating rooms that keeps the temperature and humidity under control, and reduces overall cooling costs. After evaluating many options, engineers turned to a natural gasfired desiccant system to supplement the existing central chiller. The desiccant system takes the load off
the central chiller; allowing it to run more efficient ly.
Natural gas cooling. It's the cost effective way to cool and dehumidify commercial
and residential space. For more information on gas-fired desiccant, engine driven, or absorption units call
our local gas company.
