Commercial Hospital HVAC for Medical and Life Sciences

Commercial HVAC Design for Hospitals in NY and NJ

Every hospital should maintain healthy indoor air quality. When patients seek assistance for emergencies, go in for surgery, or give birth, they expect the facility to be clean and safe. AirLogix works tirelessly to keep hospitals, medical facilities, and life sciences buildings in the best shape with high-powered HVAC systems.

A hospital HVAC system is critically important, even if it’s not something most people would consider. It keeps the facility running to its fullest capacity. Because hospitals must have as much of a controlled environment as possible, their heating, cooling, and ventilation systems must be on point.

To help alleviate the stress of doctors, nurses, and other vital workers cluttering up their day worrying about heating and cooling, we offer expert HVAC design for hospitals that consider the facility’s unique needs.

System Design

We understand no two hospitals are the same. We carefully look at the factors that are most important to your facility and identify the right type of system for you, like:

  • The size of your facility
  • Its location
  • The type of patients you care for (senior citizens, people needing therapy, or patients with chronic illnesses like cancer, etc.)
  • Your facility’s priorities
  • How your current HVAC system operates

Considering these factors, similar hospitals can have very different HVAC systems. Once you’ve recognized your desires for your facility, you’re on the right path to improving your hospital HVAC.

Control Your Risk With Hospital HVAC

At AirLogix, we want your patients to remain as safe as possible. Your hospital’s HVAC system plays an important role in keeping a clean environment where your patients can be comfortable. Investing in a sound HVAC system is worth it when you reduce the risk of infection and spread. So even if it doesn’t seem like it, temperature, humidity, pressure control, airflow, and air quality all play a part in a hospital’s safety, especially in areas like isolation rooms where sterilization is essential.

Places like operating rooms and equipment sterilization areas require the HVAC system to be somewhat complex, so a unique design is needed. In addition, exceptional standards and application codes are applied to the design as well as the construction and maintenance of the hospital HVAC system.


Heating, air conditioning, and ventilation are only a small part of our services. We also partner with medical facilities that need refrigeration for vaccines and evidence.

Hospital HVAC Maintenance

A sturdy HVAC design for your hospital is a must, but if you’re not getting regular maintenance and inspections, you’re setting your health care facility up for failure.

Hospitals run 24/7, and that means they need extensive HVAC systems that are constantly running. Because the costs of running such a tank of a system with industry-leading technology are so great, facility owners should prioritize reaching out to an HVAC servicer like AirLogix for their maintenance needs.

We can clean and catch the dirt and grime early, so you don’t ever have to shut down your operations or relocate patients. Our trusted technicians take the proactive solution, so your patients and staff can rest easy as the medical personnel focus on what they do best: saving lives.

Our services come with transparent and dependable emergency assistance, as well as:

  • Priority Service Calls
  • White Glove Service
  • Reduced Labor Rates
  • A General Service Contract
  • Energy Cost Savings


While it’s crucial to maintain your hospital HVAC system, eventually, it will have to be replaced even with perfect maintenance. Therefore, knowing your options and being able to plan accordingly can be beneficial in many ways.

Replacing an entire HVAC system for a large hospital can be extremely costly and disrupt the facility. This can cost a hospital thousands of dollars in lost revenue due to the loss of active procedures and testing, even for just one day.

Because of this, retrofit systems have been designed to minimize costs and interruptions in your hospital’s daily function by replacing parts of your HVAC system, a little at a time. When parts can’t be fixed, they get replaced. Eventually, your entire system gets replaced.

Consider Your Current System

If your hospital is experiencing any of the following problems, a retrofit upgrade may be the solution.

  • It’s over ten years old
  • You have high energy bills without explanation
  • You’re getting complaints from staff, patients, and visitors about it always being too hot or too cold
  • Continual repair costs are getting more and more expensive
  • You’re noticing an indoor air quality issue

The benefits of a well-planned HVAC retrofit can include:

  • Updated system for the most up-to-date health, safety, and comfort available
  • Energy savings
  • Longer HVAC lifespan
  • Fewer repair costs
  • More comfortable environment
  • A return on investment that you can see and feel quickly


Air conditioning systems in hospitals have air handling units that require more options and even higher quality than usual. These units must meet many requirements and standards to be useful in a healthcare facility.

The “UTA” series of air handler units are designed to meet these requirements, including heating, cooling, humidifying, filtering, and ventilating. They also have to meet thermal and hydrometric standards. These HVAC systems are more than just air conditioners and heaters—they bring energy efficiency, high quality, and more comfort.

Understanding your hospital’s HVAC needs is what AirLogix specializes in. With this advanced technology, we recognize the importance of safety in patient care.


Filtration is the way that air quality is continually controlled. Proper filtration in a hospital is vital to infection control throughout the facility. Typically, two filtration levels are required in most areas of the hospital, while other areas of the hospital can require three levels of filtration.

Our experts map out each space and what it will be used for during the design and installation of a hospital HVAC system. Because in a hospital, many different kinds of patients are treated. Some patients may have infectious and contagious diseases or illnesses requiring a certain amount of isolation. There will also be patients with compromised immune systems (in the ICU, newborn nurseries, neonatal ICUs, and operating rooms). These areas need to be especially protected from those that are infectious through HVAC filtration.

Because many pathogens can be transported through the air vents and airflow systems, the filtration designs give added protection from spreading pathogens. These high-level filtration systems make it hard for even the tiniest particles, bacteria, and viruses to settle, which can potentially cause disease. HEPA filtration traps infectious particles, stops bacteria from increasing, and prevents the spread of viruses and other airborne diseases to your most vulnerable patients.


Ventilation plays an essential part in providing clean air to the hospital. Its primary function is to move as much outside air into a room as necessary. Air quality control is one of an HVAC system’s most considerable energy costs, so keeping the temperature comfortable is critical. But in a hospital environment, keeping certain areas like an operating room at a lower temperature is required.

Temperature control is not the only part of ventilation. Many areas need the air to be circulated at a specific rate, even during special procedures. The flow of air is regulated, and so is the humidity and air pressure required in some regions.
