How to Reduce Costs and Improve Quality of Life in Senior Living Facilities

Facility Managers for senior living facilities need to stay focused on the quality of care and living for their residents. Unexpected appliance repairs are expensive disruptions to maintenance routines, residents’ comfort, and even air quality. Wouldn’t it be better if appliance diagnostics, maintenance, and control functions could be automated and remotely controlled?

Senior Care Facility managers ideally want to run facilities efficiently to be on budget at maximum profit, in addition to maintaining the highest level of comfort and reliability for residents. However, when appliances fail unexpectedly, it reduces the quality of life and comfort of their residents.

There shouldn’t be a trade-off. But, most property management systems don’t include appliance-management functions that know when maintenance is needed for each unit, proactively scheduling maintenance to avoid malfunctions, and even enabling remote control for each independent appliance.

The Most Advanced Appliance-Management Capabilities Are Now Available as a Stand-Alone Solution or Integrated Into Any Existing Property Management System

GE SmartHQ Management is the answer to the cost-vs.-comfort problem for Senior Living facility managers. Whether in common areas or in each room, appliances that are connected and monitored can deliver better air-quality standards while improving operating costs." or something to that effect. The only thing we need to be mindful of is that the PTAC units don't need to be connected to cycle air, but if you are using the system you could proactively run the unit.
