Operational Efficiency


An Optimized System Delivers Bigger Savings

Energy use accounts for one of the biggest portions of a healthcare facility’s operating costs. Our dedicated team of engineers have designed state of the art, cost-effective, high efficiency systems for hundreds of facilities across the nation reducing energy bills by 30% on average. We’ll also reduce installation costs by creating a tailored, appropriately sized system for your facility featuring equipment that’s easy to install and service without interruption to your patients.

Reduced Operating Costs
The best way to reduce operating costs is to ensure your system is optimized to operate at peak performance. Our durable, high efficiency, high performing products give you the reliability you need to ensure your patients are comfortable and have hot water on demand while maximizing savings. Operating efficiency also means you’ll have less unscheduled (and costly) maintenance.

High Efficiency Water Heaters and Boilers
Converting to high efficiency water heaters and boilers provides an average of 30% in energy savings which can translate into thousands of dollars annually.

onAER® Predictive Maintenance*
onAER continuously monitors the overall health of your system providing details on overall performance and efficiency levels so you can prevent issues from developing and ensure units are operating at peak performance. onAER also offers trending capabilities, access to maintenance schedules, and sends alerts on faults with suggested causes and actions.

Digital Mixing Systems
Digital mixing systems increase efficiency and reduce broad temperature swings by precisely controlling water temperature ±2°F (vs. ±7°F of traditional thermostatic mixing valves).

Anti-Scale Systems
Extend the life of your system and prevent scale buildup without the added cost of electricity. Anti-scale systems will improve operational efficiency and help prevent premature failure of your water system without the use of toxic chemicals.

Lower Installation Costs with a Right-sized System
Too often, systems are over-designed with excess venting, piping and capacity. Our engineers will evaluate your facility and create a tailored system that is appropriately sized for your specific requirements. Our right-sized systems will provide the correct sizing for your facility’s domestic hot water load so you won’t waste energy. It will also provide the least amount of venting and piping so your installation costs will be reduced and you’ll need less space for a mechanical room.

Case Study

A top healthcare facility needed to replace their centralized steam system that had been operating at 50-60% efficiency. Compact 96%-efficient AERCO Innovation® 600 and 800 water heaters were sent up the elevator and installed with zero-side clearance for the facility's stringent sterilization requirements. Additionally, a 94%-efficient AERCO Benchmark® 3000 was installed for space heating. All units were individually sidewall-vented. No cranes, disassembly or costly rigging were required due to the units' compact footprints. Return on Investment: 30-40% reduction in fuel operating costs.
