Your building’s environmental footprint and energy efficiency have some of the single greatest impacts on your bottom line. Thankfully, improving your business’s ecological footprint is an incredibly accessible investment. Through automating your HVAC and light systems, your company can save money on its electric bill and create an energy-efficient workplace.
Why Automate Your HVAC and Lighting Control?
Your HVAC and lighting systems are two of the most wasteful components of your organization’s infrastructure. When few people are in the building, these systems spend an excessive amount of energy for very little utility. With automation based on real-time occupancy data, these machines can better align their output with the surrounding patrons and current environmental demands. Automating your systems comes with the following benefits:
- Improve employee satisfaction: When your building is always appropriately warmed or cooled, your employees will be more comfortable, productive and satisfied with their working conditions. Decreasing your environmental impact is also essential for showing your current and prospective employees that you’re a forward-thinking company that keeps up with the times, which has become an important characteristic for employees and consumers alike.
- Reduce your building’s operational cost: Automating your lighting system using real-time building utilization data significantly reduces your total operational costs. You can achieve this by integrating your BACnet data with your existing HVAC and lighting systems to automate savings without ever thinking about it. This data will also give you insight into what parts of your buildings are most often frequented. Where there is little traffic, there is a lesser need for HVAC usage or constant lighting.
- Reduce your business’s environmental impact: By leveraging your utilization trend data, you can boost your workplace’s efficiency concerning real-estate usage to minimize your carbon footprint. For example, on days where your buildings are less populated, you can decrease your HVAC and lighting settings and let certain parts of your workplace go completely unconditioned when empty.
Optimize Your Energy and HVAC With People Counters
One of the most foolproof and cost-effective ways to automate your lighting and HVAC systems is using automatic people counting systems. People counting systems allow you to create custom occupancy levels and continuously monitor how many people have entered and exited certain regions of your building. With this technology and software, you’ll never have to guess how many individuals are in your building, which rooms are open or which rooms require more or less HVAC support.
