Most occupants and visitors of a building spend little time thinking about all of the systems and inner workings that create a safe and comfortable building environment. For building owners and managers however, building systems, their efficiency and saving energy and money are aspects always being considered. Over the years, many building owners throughout Florida have contemplated upgrading their property in order to make it more energy efficient and in some cases, certifying it as a “green” structure. With energy management solutions from Advanced, many of these property owners have successfully implemented our building automation systems, transforming their property into an intelligent structure.
From hospitals and high-rise condominiums to schools, industrial properties and commercial businesses, the need for a cohesive and efficient management system is critical in order to operate smoothly and at low cost. Energy management solutions help property owners and personnel teams monitor and control all mechanical and electrical systems, air quality control levels, temperatures, lighting, security, access and more. These systems consist of centralized, interlinked networks containing software and hardware that manage and schedule each system from one centralized onsite location. When systems need to be monitored or reset when not onsite, those with access can log into the system remotely with an Internet connection and their mobile or laptop.
Now that you are up to speed on how an energy management solution works, you may want to know more about its benefits. Here is a quick overview of just a fraction of benefits available:
- Increased monetary savings – Because energy management solutions give you greater control over your building’s systems and help the structure run more efficiently overall, monetary savings begin to take place. For instance, a typical commercial structure that installs an energy management system saves up to 15% of its annual operating costs. Depending on square footage, this can break down to anywhere from $.25 to $.40 per square foot.
- Simplify operations – Your energy management solution will control all of your systems in one location, offering you and your team real-time displays and simplification of equipment and system management. The network will also alert your team when an area or piece of equipment is experiencing an issue. This can help you save money in the long run by having the opportunity to deal with a breakdown sooner rather than later.
- Happier occupants – In many studies, increased comfort is linked to increase in production. With an energy management system, you can increase occupants or employee comfort through better-controlled air quality, temperature, lighting and security. In addition, your system can shut off certain controls and systems when the area is not occupied, saving you money.
