If you have a commercial, industrial or institutional building, you may have already considered installing a building automation system (BAS). You may also be asking yourself what the potential benefits of installing a BAS are, and if the value you’ll receive is worth the upfront cost.
Building automation systems offer enhanced control of a building’s various systems, including heating and cooling (HVAC), electrical, security and so on. These control systems vary in complexity depending on the nature of the building and the objective, and are customized for each situation.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider using a building automation system.
Benefits of a Well Designed, Implemented and Managed Building Automation Systems
Lower Energy Cost
With the help of a building automation system, HVAC and electrical systems are run more efficiently, reducing energy consumption and utility bills.
A BAS designed, implemented and managed by FourNetworks not only helps to automate a building’s systems with sensors and timers, but many collect data regarding the building’s energy usage, which can be studied for opportunities for potential improvements.
This reduction in energy usage not only reduces costs, but also reduces the building’s environmental footprint, which is a benefit for everyone.
A BAS designed, implemented and managed by FourNetworks automatically adjusts a building’s temperature and lighting, maintaining an ideal level of comfort within the facility.
By increasing comfort levels, a building automation system also reduces complaints from occupants and can even help with productivity - which brings us to our next point.
If you’re considering a building automation system for your business, one of the benefits you’ll likely reap is increased productivity.
Not only are employees more productive when they’re comfortable, but because a BAS allows your systems to run more efficiently, they are less likely to break down and require repairs which can be disruptive to a business’s day-to-day operations.
Reduce Maintenance Costs
As mentioned above, a facility’s systems run more efficiently when controlled by a building automation system which prevents breakdowns and other issues, especially within HVAC systems.
When controlled by a BAS designed, implemented and managed by FourNetworks, a building’s systems tend to experience less wear and tear, and therefore last longer and require less repairs. However, it’s important to still have your systems serviced regularly, regardless of whether or not you use a BAS. FourNetworks can assist in the maintenance process by scheduling all required maintenance and with it's continuous monitoring. it will see issues before they become problems.
Building automation systems designed, implemented and managed by FourNetworks can be connected to security systems in order to increase safety and peace of mind.
These systems can be used to live monitor what is happening within a facility, provide alerts of suspicious activity, or have the doors lock and unlock at specified times.
Secured Data Collection
A building automation system designed, implemented and managed by FourNetworks allows you and your organization to monitor and control your building’s systems from anywhere, anytime.
At FourNetworks, as mentioned above, we also monitor your building’s system data in our state of the art NOC (Network Operations Center) so that we can quickly respond to any concerns before they become more serious. Rather than allowing small issues to go unnoticed and worsen over time, building automation systems allow us to react to problems immediately, either via computer controls or by dispatching the appropriate technician.
