Water-to-Water Heat Pump Yields Significant Savings for Hospital

November 2006
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Nov2006, Vol. 78 Issue 11, p58
The article highlights the $1.4 million savings of Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto, Ontario from the replacement of two aging centrifugal chillers with a new York MaxE water-to-water heat pump manufactured by Johnson Controls. It says that a 36-percent reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions is made from using the heat pump.
