How can you implement energy-efficient HVAC practices that reduce your energy usage and save money for your business? You can achieve all those goals by installing building automation systems (BAS) in your facility. Air Comfort has years of experience installing these systems, and we help our customers develop building automation system maintenance plans for their commercial buildings. Let’s explore how a BAS gives your building an energy-efficient HVAC system.
A building automated system improves your building’s HVAC efficiency by allowing you to control your system through a user-friendly interface. It also separates your building into zones, so you can control the heating and air conditioning for each zone without affecting the others. These features allow you to keep a close eye on your commercial HVAC system and adjust the air and the temperature to prevent excessive heat loss. It also helps you observe the air quality in your facility, so you can make sure your building’s or facility’s occupants are safe and healthy as they perform their jobs.
You may wonder: is a BAS the same as a control system? No, not quite. A control system controls an HVAC system’s input, output, and field controller layers, while a BAS automates those control system features. Additionally, you can install a control system that’s completely independent of your BAS, if that type of system design fits your building’s HVAC needs.
After you install a BAS, your HVAC provider should work with you to develop a building automated system maintenance plan to keep your BAS in excellent shape. This maintenance plan should include checking and maintaining all the heater and air conditioner’s components as well as the user interface’s performance. If you work with your HVAC provider to follow the maintenance plan, you can keep your utility bills manageable while maintaining good air quality throughout your facility.

How can your business and your facility benefit from a BAS? A BAS can benefit your building and your business by increasing energy efficiency through its zone-based design. You can make sure your heating and cooling system provides each zone with the right amount of air at the right temperature for its occupants and equipment. When you hit the right temperature and provide each zone with good air quality, it can improve your employees’ productivity as well as your equipment’s performance. It also maintains your employees’ health and increases your energy savings, since your HVAC system won’t have to overwork itself to distribute healthy air throughout your building.
Additionally, installing a BAS means you can preset temperatures for certain zones, so you don’t have to micromanage the user interface to improve conditions for your employees and your equipment. For example, you can set temperatures lower in the winter and higher in the summer when your building is unoccupied to reduce your utility bill costs and adjust the temperatures to more comfortable levels during business hours.
