Taking Control of Energy Costs through Comprehensive BAS Retrocommissioning
With rapidly rising utility rates and an increased focus on energy efficiency and carbon reduction, replacing aging, inefficient equipment is a natural path to efficiency gains. But costly capital improvements aren’t the only option. This case study of a capital improvement and control system upgrade at a 40-year-old Boston office tower shows the value of revisiting your control systems and the associated sequence of operations. Improved control system use led to a 17% reduction in electricity consumption and a 21% reduction in steam consumption. There may be much more potential in your existing equipment than you think!
1. Highlight the importance of clear documentation of sequences of operations
2. Understand the importance of elimination of temporary or isolated programming changes
3. Learn how to conduct regular review of systems, with particular consideration for changing occupancy or use requirements.
4. Participants will consider specific challenges posed by the subject building’s single-glass-panel façade
