Carrier Increases Energy Efficiency at Hartford Hospital
Date:6/11/2009

HARTFORD, Conn., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Carrier Corp., a world leader of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions, and a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), recently completed the third phase of energy projects for Hartford Hospital. With the goal of increasing patient comfort and increasing energy efficiency, the current $5 million project upgraded an aging and inefficient cooling system in the hospital's 867 bed facility.

Carrier has been working with Hartford Hospital for over 30 years, but the most recent series of energy efficiency upgrade projects began just over 10 years ago. In 1998, Carrier began phase one by making system-wide improvements on the hospital's north campus, installing a Carrier Comfort Network(R) (CCN) controls system which allowed for automatic adjustments, precisely matching conditioned air delivery to actual building conditions. The controls technology upgrade along with a new variable flow pumping system resulted in saving the hospital $1.2 million in annual operating costs. In 2005, Carrier expanded the chiller plant free cooling system, improved the cooling tower air recirculation, and provided advanced lighting upgrades, all of which resulted in annual savings of more than a quarter of a million dollars.

In the third and final phase, Carrier was awarded $5 million to install three Evergreen(R) 19XRV water-cooled centrifugal chillers using non-ozone depleting HFC-134a. Variable frequency drives (VFDs) were used to increase efficiency and lower energy consumption by precisely matching motor speed with building demand. In addition, the VFDs reduce mechanical stress and motor wear, requiring less maintenance and prolonging system life.

"The Carrier team worked closely with us to complete the most recent upgrade with minimal disruption to the hospital's nor
