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.
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.
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.
