Intermountain Healthcare Saves 82% On Energy Costs With Coolerado

Denver, October 15, 2013Coolerado today announces that Intermountain Healthcare has selected the Coolerado M50 line of air conditioners to save on energy costs and increase environmental health for its clinics, home health and operating room settings. Intermountain predicts a full return on investment in under five years and the fact that Coolerado uses 100% fresh outside air that’s filtered before it’s cooled means fewer germs, less dust, pollen, and allergens. By utilizing Coolerado’s M50s, Intermountain will be exceeding ASHRAE’s guidance for operating rooms which prescribes changing the air out 4 times per hour.

“Coolerado has no competitors in the AC space, they are a great single source direct environmental impact solution,” states Troy Jensen, corporate energy manager for Intermountain Healthcare. “With an 88% decrease in environmental impact, everyone should be re-thinking their AC solution and considering Coolerado whose Energy Efficiency Rating (EER) is around 42 versus 13 to 18 for a typical cooling solution. We take saving energy very serious here at Intermountain and we couldn’t be more pleased to partner with Coolerado to make such impacting changes.”

Intermountain is the largest private employer in the state of Utah with over 34,000 employees, 22 hospitals and 185 clinics taking up over 16 million square feet of building space. To-date, Intermountain has spent approximately 3.5 million dollars on their Energy Management Program and has already recouped 2 million dollars in energy cost savings. “It’s expensive to operate a leading healthcare facility 24 by 7 and as a non-profit every one dollar of energy savings equates to saving 20 dollars overall for Intermountain Healthcare; that’s a huge impact.” said Jensen.

Jensen and his team put Coolerado through its paces before making their selection. Jensen first noticed Coolerado’s unique patented technology based on Doctor Valeriy Maisotsenko’s M-Cycle Indirect Evaporative Cooling, a revolutionary breakthrough in thermodynamics. It was not until after taking the Coolerado demo trailer to their hospitals around the state, however, that he realized that the small packaged Coolerado array generates the performance of an IDEC system without the need of a cooling tower or fluid cooler. “It’s like having multiple mini cooling towers within close proximity to each application, rather than having one large centrally located cooling tower; this went from voo-doo magic to the coolest thing on the planet.”
