The article discusses the need for condensing boilers to lessen carbon dioxide emissions in U.S. hospitals which spend an average of 1.67 dollars per square foot for electricity and another 48 cents per square foot for natural gas. It notes that energy consumption in hospitals are accounted for 45 percent by heating and ventilation (HVAC) and 25 percent by lighting. It presents charts related to carbon dioxide emissions from natural gas.
