Energy efficiency in buildings and facilities is an engineering initiative for effective energy use. Energy efficiency engineering results in building comfort and cost-effectiveness. Other benefits of designing energy-efficient buildings include better environmental control, health and safety, an increase in air quality, and materials and equipment that last longer due to the efficiency of…
On June 30, 2021, the Niagara AX platform reached its “end of life.” It’s being replaced by the more efficient and highly secure Niagara N4 platform. If you’re still running Niagara AX, there are a few notable changes that you should be aware of:
Facility managers today have access to a wide variety of ways to improve overall energy efficiency within their buildings.
The goal of any maintenance program is to extend your equipment’s life and avoid costly breakdowns. When it comes to building management, an automation system that monitors and controls systems (such as temperature, lighting, and security) can support facility maintenance and help keep tenants comfortable and safe.
Building systems, such as HVAC, consist of thousands of components that work together to keep occupants comfortable and safe. Preventative maintenance helps ensure all these pieces stay in good condition, through inspecting and checking for worn parts.
There’s always the potential for control system issues to arise, in older facilities and even in new construction. From faulty sensors to loose plugs, addressing the small issues within a building automation system (BAS) could stop big problems from developing later on.
Facility managers across all industries face challenges in reducing energy costs while maintaining their buildings. This is largely due to the fact that facility managers are also responsible for the health and safety of the building's occupants.
