For many years, plant managers & owners have struggled with this problem of how to adequately provide cooling with large conventional systems for their workers to insure peak production and a safe working environment.
Occupational (Industrial) hygienists recommend using the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGTs) & Threshold Limit Values (TLVs) which translated to Humidex level which tells us how hot we feel. Under certain workplace conditions, the humidex may serve as an indicator of discomfort resulting from occupational exposures to heat.
The Occupational Health Clinics for Ontario Workers Inc. (OHCOW), humidex above 38 leads to 15 minutes heat breaks. ABS ESCO Inc. offers Turnkey Solution which will provide cool, comfortable, treated air to employees without having to air-conditioning your entire facility. Our GEOSpot solution is best fit with geothermal technology. Our GEOSpot solution is innovative & is a novel combination of traditional HVAC & Renewable technology (Geothermal). The solution combine hydronic chilled water space air cooling & warm water space heating in one package.
How does Spot Solution Work?
Indoor Spot System - The indoor spot system is an innovative & unique system which operates differently from conventional HVAC system. This System uses an approach whereby the new breed of air handlers (Low Air Volume) connected to insulated piping system which can deliver maximum cooling and heating via insulated small high velocity duct system including 2" branch supply tubing that carries high velocity, reduce volumes of conditioned air to be delivered directly to the factory worker. The system as a whole is much quieter than a typical furnace or air handler and duct system that you find in a regular industrial space. Due to lower volume of air, our spot solution provides 30% more humidity removal with the superior & efficient design of the cooling coils, creating a comfortable environment, over traditional HVAC systems of same size.
How does Spot Solution Work?
The Central Plant –
– The central plant consist of energy efficient water to water heat pumps, thermal fluid, circulating pumps, piping, insulation, & controls located in a relatively smaller mechanical room. Depending on the seasons, the entire system either produces chilled or warm thermal fluid which will deliver to indoor spot units & new coils of existing fresh air units.

A geothermal system uses the energy of the sun, stored in the earth, ready to provide comfort all year round. Even in the winter, when a blanket of snow covers the ground, the earth's temperature remains approximately 10°C (50°F) at only six feet below the surface. This means that a steady supply of heat is available to provide comfort, even in the depths of the coldest winter. A series of pipes buried in the ground in a vertical fashion. A thermal fluid is circulated through the pipes to make them highly efficient conductors of heat. In the winter, the thermal fluid in the pipes absorbs the heat from the ground and, now warmed up, the fluid is pumped back through the geothermal unit in the mechanical room to deliver heat. In the summer, the heat transfer process takes place in reverse. The fluid in the pipes leaves the plant in a warm state, but after circulating underground, is cooled as the pipes exchange heat with the much cooler earth.
Spot solution eliminates the need to air condition an entire factory space. It also eliminates the need for costly and space-wasting cool rooms. And, although Spot Solutions offers a permanent solution, it's highly adaptable and flexible. It can easily be reconfigured as workers move within their stations or as the production line is modified.
GEOSpot - The Solution which can provide Cooling Energy Efficiency Ratio EER of 25 & Heating Coefficient of Performance COP of 4.5 of Central Water to Water Heat Pumps with variable speed pumps resulting in higher system efficiency and lower operating cost.
System Cost & Payback
We have experience and knowledge to design Geothermal field which is 65% smaller in size than than conventional geothermal field, huge savings resulting in Geothermal Investment that Pays 66% in Year 1 and 80% in Year 2. Overall system payback is 4.8 years.
