With tighter operating budgets, stricter government guidelines and increasing public awareness, energy savings and resource conservation have become top priorities in the public and private sectors. And with those priorities, sustainable building operations must adhere to both energy use concerns and occupant comfort.
Facility managers know that saving on energy costs cannot come at the expense of comfort. Studies have linked comfort levels to error rates and productivity, absenteeism and even successful classroom learning. The key is to strike a predictable and measurable balance – and to maintain that balance consistently.
That’s where the WebCTRL system comes in, with features like setpoint optimization, trending information, thermographic color floor plans and demand reduction, it not only saves you energy, it lowers costs — all while maintaining the optimal level of occupant comfort.
Managing the energy and other needs in buildings efficiently and intelligently can have considerable benefits. A building energy management system (BEMS) is a sophisticated method to monitor and control the building's energy needs. Next to energy management, the system can control and monitor a large variety of other aspects of the building regardless of whether it is residential or commercial. Examples of these functions are heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting or security measures. BEMS technology can be applied in both residential and commercial buildings.
