By leveraging IoT to buildings, facility managers and tenants can gain actionable insights that enable them to save on operational expenses, increase tenant comfort, and save energy.
One particular area that has the largest scope in reducing operational expenditure in a building is the HVAC system. HVACs are among the most energy-intensive mechanism of any business. In fact, space cooling accounts for 15% of the electricity used in commercial buildings on average. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), much of the energy and cost that goes into powering HVAC is lost to waste – upwards of 30% in the average commercial building.
Having the ability to monitor, control, optimize and analyze this system can limit energy consumption in unoccupied building zones, detect and diagnose faults, and reduce HVAC usage, particularly during times of peak energy demand. Our TwinWorX software analyzes data from a variety of sensors across multiple subsystems and maintains that information in real-time, which is remotely accessible. Additionally, facility managers can review historical data and use it on a granular level that allows them to adjust HVAC controls accordingly, thereby avoiding wasted HVAC usage.
