The amount of energy used up in healthcare buildings by traditional types of Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning systems is about 40% of the total building energy consumption. It also accounts for a large number of harmful emissions released into the environment. Therefore, we need to implement the use of green systems that will help in not only improving indoor comfort and quality but also in reducing energy consumptions and harmful CO2 emissions. HVAC is defined as a system that is responsible for controlling and maintaining the thermal comfort of indoor rooms. The purpose of this research paper is to identify sustainable Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning systems that can be used in healthcare facilities. The research also focuses on identifying different methods and technologies to help understand how they can be used with maximum efficiency. First we discuss types of heating ventilation and air conditioning systems and their manufacturing process. Then we analyze the different criteria and technologies for systems specific to healthcare facilities and green technologies. The final process of this research paper involves the study of different case studies where we use several assessments to confirm the most appropriate type of green systems to be used for healthcare buildings. In conclusion, every healthcare building has a different set of requirements but new and green technologies are the most environmentally and economically beneficial. This paper is divided into six main parts: (i) Introduction (ii) Literature Review (iii) Manufacturing Process (iv) New Systems and Technology (v) Green HVAC Systems and (vi) Conclusion. Hence, by identifying the several types of green HVAC systems in this paper, we will now be able to understand the most appropriate and efficient type that we can use in health care facilities. This will allow for a great reduction in energy consumption, harmful emissions and provide a more thermally comfortable environment for patients.
