The Advanced Energy Design Guide for Small Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities can help in the design of new healthcare facilities that are 30% more energy efficient than current industry standards using ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999 as a benchmark. This saves energy but also supports the other design goals important to healthcare facilities: to improve the patient experience, enhance the healing environment, increase staff retention, lower construction and operating costs, contribute to an environmentally conscious building design, and improve the bottom-line performance of the healthcare facility.

This Advanced Energy Design Guide is for typical hotels found along highways having up to 80 rooms, generally four stories or less, that use unitary heating and air-conditioning equipment, which represent a significant amount of commercial hotel space in the U.S. Application of the recommendations in the Guide should result in hotels with 30% energy savings when compared to those same hotels designed to the minimum requirements of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings.
