Energy Saving Management Units
Available from Energex Inc.
As I’m sure you know Heating and Cooling consumes the largest percentage of total energy within most buildings. Unfortunately approximately 30-40% of this is wasted within student residences, hotels, and motels due to unnecessary HVAC run time when these units are empty. Although a programmable thermostat is a potential option, it is often the case that people fail to utilize them and their rigidity in programming creates frustration and dissatisfaction.
For over 10 years our company has been pioneering occupancy controls to help create more intelligent and energy efficient buildings. Our systems can be integrated with any type of HVAC system, and work autonomously to help the in-unit HVAC system adjust demand based on occupancy.
Simply put, we gradually begin to turn down the thermostat by 5-6 degrees if a space is left unoccupied for longer than 30 minutes. There are numerous considerations that incorporated during the development of our systems (but essentially we created it to:
·Be Cost effective – (In component costs, deployment, maintenance)
·Have the capability to control any type of system (Radiant, Steam, PTAC, Fan Coil, VAV, Heat Pump, Electric, Etc…)
·Optimize energy efficiency without sacrificing inhabitant comfort
·Come prepared with expansion capability to control lighting, remote access, and demand response.
