Pressed against the Canadian border, Drummond Island, Michigan, has a population of slightly more than 1,000 people, which means their demands on space and infrastructure are equally small. With such irregular use, a few multi-use buildings make more sense than many sprawling, single-use buildings. Such was the Drummond Island Medical Center, which houses x-ray and therapy rooms, as well as clinical offices and a dental office, where our M-Series systems were installed to provide targeted comfort when needed.

Because the medical center served so many functions, some facilities were often used far more than others. Chairman of the Medical Center Board, Anne Stadler, said of the 60-year-old facility, “It was important for us to be able to turn the temperature down or up in individual rooms. The dentist is here just two times a month, so there’s no need to heat her office if she’s not there.” Selecting our zoned solutions offered patients and staff personalized comfort while using energy only as necessary.

Stadler’s other focus was to select a system that would save on cost and have a small footprint. Our system did this as well, saving the medical center as much as $6,000 in rebates, and the units are so small and quiet that the patients can hardly recognize from where the comfortable air is coming.
