Mandi, April 6

Wall heaters have been installed at the District Hospital, Keylong, to facilitate the patients during winters, when temperature falls below zero degree.

Patients admitted to the hospital suffered because of bone-chilling cold due to lack of heating facility in the hospital during winter seasons.

Technical Education Minister Ram Lal Markanda said Wally Heating Solution LLP had installed the heating system free of cost in the hospital to ensure comfort of ailing people.

Mandi Deputy Commissioner Pankaj Rai said it was the first project in the state. The heating system would be set up in all government offices, said the DC.

He said hoteliers and homestay owners would be encouraged to take advantage of it.

It maintained 22 degree C inside a room when outside temperature was -15 degree C.

The Deputy Commissioner stated that according to experts, the heating system was cost-effective and safe. “There is no risk of oxygen depletion like gas or kerosene heaters,” he said.
