Using Data Analytics for Commercial HVAC Troubleshooting
Today’s commercial buildings account for more than 35 percent of the electricity consumed in the...
Today, there is a lot of talk in the commercial building industry about advanced analytics. As new analytics providers offer facilities managers solutions to maintain thermal comfort for all occupants while also keeping their energy consumption reasonable, the fact remains that not all solutions are created equal. If your tenants are complaining about the temperature or their high energy bills or both, consider upgrading to an advanced analytics system.
Achieving thermal comfort and energy consumption goals may seem like competing endeavors, however, they can actually be achieved simultaneously by leveraging advanced analytics. Intelligent analytics provide actionable recommendations for facilities managers concerning their operations and equipment—enabling them to make informed decisions and adjustments as necessary to manage costs and comfort concurrently.
Advanced analytics can help facilities managers with the following:
Intelligent analytics provides proactive, comprehensive system monitoring, enabling managers to view data at any time and optimize equipment operations to reduce energy consumption as well as monitor thermal comfort continuously.
The most cutting-edge software includes:
Advanced analytics offer significant opportunities to identify waste areas, gain deeper understanding of operational costs, and achieve actual cost savings. By leveraging expert analytics and machine learning algorithms to evaluate improvement areas, facilities managers can take the appropriate steps to ensure their building is more cost and energy-efficient.
Advanced analytics also helps facilities managers reach specific building performance and sustainability goals. An experienced partner offering a comprehensive solution will not only provide advanced analytics, but also provide the integration, monitoring, and controls to help facilities managers alleviate waste, reduce carbon footprints, and better manage equipment maintenance.
There are multiple advantages to leveraging advanced analytics for your building portfolio, including:
