BAS technology, shorthand for building automation systems, is immensely beneficial. Your commercial enterprise will reap the benefits once you’ve gone ahead and implemented such an upgrade. Why is that? You’ll suddenly find yourself coming into a windfall of money due to operational cost savings and decreased energy bills. While it’s easy to hesitate about making the switch, we’ll outline some great reasons why you should take the plunge!
The BAS System Itself
For many commercial facilities, cutting operating costs is a harrowing ordeal. This prospect can seem like you’re trying to cross a tightrope stretched between two skyscrapers. Where’s the zipline? By managing your pre-existing heating and cooling systems more effectively, you can draw down costs that would otherwise drain your budget; moreover, reasonable temperatures, decent airflow, and good IAQ matter. Cold and flu season is upon us, so the real question is, are you ready?
Automation systems can do more than just interface with your HVAC systems, though; they can also link up with heavy machinery, lights, access control systems, and fire safety mechanisms. This means you can control humidity levels more efficiently and adjust lighting levels depending on room occupancy.
Why Are They So Great?
Building managers need to have full situational awareness of what’s going on inside their facility. The BAS, ahem, facilitates this process. In other words, it becomes much easier to manage the hardware and its associated mechanical components. If you don’t have one up and running, you could be leaving money on the table. Why’s that, you ask? Because the system might not be operating at peak performance throughout the year, which is bad news no matter how frightful the weather outside is.
Immediate Reduction of Energy Waste
Building automation systems cut rising costs by indicating where the most energy waste comes from. The loss of such a resource will hamper your efforts to swap over to “greener” pastures because you’re largely unable to curb carbon emissions. The FM receives streamlined information where the data analysis has been completed, simplified, and rendered ready to use.
Detection of Equipment Malfunctions
BAS can head off any potential equipment failures at the pass before they lead to crippling downtime. This scenario can ruin your reputation and dampen customer and client confidence in your ability to continue serving them. In this way, the HVAC system can enjoy a prolonged service lifespan. What this means is that the costs for repairs, retrofits, and replacements go way down. To sum it all up, automation makes everything simpler!
