Building automation systems

  1. Building Automation Systems

    Installing or upgrading a building automation system (also known as an energy management system) can save between 5 and 15 percent of overall building energy consumption. Learn how to reduce overall building operating costs by controlling building equipment so that it operates more efficiently.

  2. Monitoring-Based Commissioning

    Monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx) is a process applied to buildings to keep them performing at optimal levels. MBCx uses sensors and software in addition to standard retrocommissioning practices to provide a real-time account of systems within the building, often offering greater energy savings.

  3. Thermostats

    Programmable thermostats offer an automated way to reduce energy costs by turning down heating or cooling systems when a space is unoccupied. This article discusses how to use programmable thermostats effectively for maximum savings.
