Reduce Your Building Operating Costs in 4 Ways

Temperature: Are you heating and cooling your facility to optimal levels at the correct times of the day? Are you conserving energy by reducing heating and cooling during non-business hours? Each 1-degree Celsius increase within your facility during the winter and decrease during the summer has a 5%-10% impact on your total energy bill.

Equipment: Are you turning off equipment such as compressors, and all the electronic devices within your facility during downtimes rather than leaving them in idle mode? Always on, but inactive equipment and devices can add 10% -15% to your annual utility bill.

Lighting: Do all the lights need to be on in your facility during the day or non-business hours? Are you accounting for seasonality in your schedule for lighting your parking lot and outdoor signage? Lighting is often the largest single use of electricity in commercial buildings, so optimizing this critical element can create significant cost reductions.

CO2 Level: If you aren’t monitoring CO2 levels 24/7, you may be ventilating your facility more or less often than what’s required to maintain optimal levels for a healthy environment. Ventilation is the second largest use of electricity in commercial buildings, so it pays you to optimize this process.

Custom Built For You on the Industry-Standard Niagara Framework

We can custom develop your energy management solution using either the Niagara Ax or Niagara 4 platform to monitor, measure, schedule and control your electrical building loads, and centrally control devices like HVAC units, and lighting systems.

Both Niagara AX (Java-based) and Niagara 4 (HTML5-based) are truly open frameworks that can connect almost any embedded device or system—regardless of manufacturer or communication protocol, so they allow the use of non-propriety sensors and ancillary components.

To integrate diverse devices and systems, a physical connection is required. We use a JACE (Java Application Control Engine) controller, like the one pictured here, to provide this connectivity. The unique distributed architecture that a network of JACE controllers creates, maintains scalability and reliability of our energy management solution for you.

JACE controllers combine integrated control, supervision, data logging, alarming, scheduling and network management functions, integrated IO with internet connectivity and web-serving capabilities. A JACE controller also makes it possible to control and manage external devices over the internet and present real-time information to users in web-based graphical views.
