Many property and building owners are revamping various aspects of their property in order to make it more efficient, have less of a negative effect on the environment and save them money. One way they are doing this is through the installation of green building systems or Building Automation Systems, also known as a BAS. These green building systems produce safer, more comfortable and productive environments for occupants while reducing overall costs. You may be curious how these systems work. A BAS is a centralized network that manages and monitors all of your property’s systems, structures and components. By controlling HVAC, lighting, temperature, air quality, access control and security systems at optimal levels, your building becomes as efficient as possible.
Now that you know how a BAS works, you may be wondering if you will receive a return on investment with a green building system. According to a recent report from McGraw Hill Construction SmartMarket, the average ROI of an intelligent or green building is:
- 20-40 percent energy usage reduction
- 8-9 percent operating cost reduction
- 5 percent building value increase
If this information has increased your interest in implementing a Building Automation System into your property, then it may be time to partner with the leaders in BAS in South Florida, Advanced Control Corporation.
