A modern building automation system (BAS) is a substantial investment. Upgrading an older BAS grants you the benefits of today’s technology, in addition to extending the life of your existing equipment.
There comes a time when it’s beneficial to update, upgrade, or replace older BAS equipment. All too often, building owners decide to entirely replace their BAS System without even considering the possibility of a legacy upgrade.
Legacy upgrades help building owners reap the benefits of newer technology without the high cost of replacing an entire BAS System. They can also help combat increasing…
Having regular maintenance performed on your Building Automation System (BAS) equipment is important and necessary.
A regular maintenance schedule will keep your equipment up to date and allow you to better monitor and control your energy usage.
You’ll find that your BAS equipment will have fewer unexpected issues—thereby saving your organization time and money while avoiding costly BAS problems
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.
