Lahey Hospital & Medical Center

41 Burlington Mall Road, Burlington, MA 01805

The project

Medical centers and hospitals are a great opportunity for energy savings in their commercial kitchens due to the long run time hours and quantity of cooking activity taking place. Lahey Hospital was no exception with 4 large kitchen hoods and 4 exhaust fans to move a large quantity of air all day long.

Solution

The ECOAZUR standard system utilizing temperature and optic sensors was a perfect retrofit solution for this facility to ensure the exhaust fans and associated makeup air units would be able to modulate based on the varying cooking activity and operate on an as needed basis. With BACnet communication to the building automation system, bypass variable frequency drives, and a full turnkey installation, ECOAZUR will be continuously saving energy.
