Trane, a brand of Ingersoll Rand, showcased some of its latest HVAC offerings and educated attendees on how to more effectively communicate with hospital leadership at the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association, July 12-15 in Boston.
Trane highlighted its lineup of Performance Climate Changer™ outdoor air handlers, which are designed to deliver increased energy efficiency, reduced operating costs, and improved IAQ and occupant comfort to serve the wide variety of customer applications. To optimize the environment of care in a hospital, Performance Climate Changer air handlers use the Trane Catalytic Air Cleaning System to combine high-efficiency MERV-13 filtration with UV-C lights and photocatalytic oxidation.
Trane also recently introduced the Trane® Sintesis™ family of air-cooled chillers, which is now available for order in Europe, the Middle East, North America, and Latin America. Sintesis chillers are part of the Ingersoll Rand® EcoWise™ portfolio of products designed to lower their environmental impact with next-generation, low-GWP (global warming potential) refrigerants and high-efficiency operation. Sintesis chillers offer customers a choice to use either R-134a or DuPont Opteon® XP10 (R-513A) — a next-generation, low-GWP refrigerant — to address sustainability objectives.
Laura Rygielski Preston, vice president of strategy and offering development for Trane, and Iona Canada, director of strategic relations for Trane, discussed how to effectively present business cases to hospital leadership, a skill that is becoming increasingly important for facilities teams. The session provided best practices and tools to help bridge the communication gap between facility team members and executives. Attendees learned to communicate more effectively with executive leadership, gained tools and best practices to help increase approval of proposed projects, learned how to effectively communicate with multiple generations in the workplace, and were taught how to integrate ongoing metrics in a timely manner within their organizations.
