Cromwell Energy Services provided extensive Retro-Commissioning services for the Main Hospital building as well as the . Energy Services utilized the ASHE guidelines and the NEBB procedural standard to conduct a thorough survey of the facilities, including data logging of critical areas, extensive interviews with operation staff, and a detailed analysis of existing facility use versus original design intent.
The study resulted in a systematic approach to improve facility operation through advanced training for the entire maintenance staff. Training included fundamentals, typical applications through very specific system operations, the basis of energy conservation and how to identify and quantify opportunities.
Subsequent measures included implementing new controls programming to reduce system operational periods, overall reduce airflow, increase temperature deadbands and reschedule maximum and minimum airflows.
