A 238-bed nursing home completed a variety of energy efficiency upgrades as part of a full facility renovation. Insulation was added in the food service area and all kitchen appliances and walk-in coolers were replaced with energy-efficient models. Bi-level motion sensor controls were installed on stairway lighting and vending machine energy management systems were added. Additional efficiency upgrades included window replacements, LED lighting and new roofing.
The project reduced overall energy consumption by 34 percent and saved more than $71,000 a year in electricity costs. The energy efficiency measures also helped reduce maintenance costs while improving patient and staff comfort and overall indoor air quality. All remodeling was completed without interrupting the business of providing patient care.
