Energy-efficiency, sustainability, and other environmental issues have become major concerns for Boca Raton’s commercial building owners in recent years, as mounting evidence of the damaging effects of man-made industry on the environment has been uncovered. No longer content to deplete natural resources with the profligate waste of energy, these environmentally aware building owners are seeking ways to reduce their energy usage and minimize their carbon footprint. If you are looking for ways to improve your building’s energy efficiency, Advanced Control Corporation offers green building solutions Boca Raton building owners can utilize to achieve their sustainability goals, reducing the amount of energy used in their facilities while creating more comfortable and responsive work environments.
In the average commercial building, 30% to 40% of the building is unoccupied at any given time. Standard building operating systems allow the lighting, cooling, and heating systems to remain on in all areas of a building whether the area is being used or not, causing as much as 30% of the energy consumed by commercial buildings to be wasted providing environmental controls in these empty areas. Since commercial buildings account for 20% of the total energy used in the United States, you can see how these inefficient buildings waste a staggeringly large amount of energy, consuming natural resources and exacting a ruinous toll on our environment to no purpose. Advanced Control provides green building solutions that eliminate this unnecessary energy waste.
Ideally, green building solutions begin at the inception of a building. Green building practices should be employed throughout the entire life cycle of the building, from the initial planning stage and siting, through design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation, continuing green construction principles all the way through the destruction of the building in a sustainable manner at the end of its usefulness. For owners with existing structures, Advanced Control has Boca Raton green construction solutions that will help you retrofit your building to operate more efficiently, allowing you to lower your energy costs and reduce your building’s environmental impact.
At the heart of Advanced Control’s innovative green building solutions are building automation systems that integrate all the control systems in a building into a single cohesive unit. Once the electrical, mechanical, and security systems and all their peripheral sensors are integrated, they can share information and act as powerful energy management systems. Motion sensors, access card readers, or passive RFID scanners can register when a building area becomes unoccupied; the building automation system then applies lighting control to turn the lights on and off according to occupancy status. Advanced Control’s energy management systems also adjust the HVAC system, turning off the system automatically. Owners can use scheduling features to ensure all building areas are at the desired temperature point by the time occupants arrive in the morning.
