As summer approaches, building owners and property managers need to prepare for the seasonal changes that come with it. One of the best ways to do this is by ensuring your building automation system is up-to-date and prepared to handle the changing needs of the building.
HVAC Optimization is crucial when temperatures begin to rise. You should optimize your HVAC systems to keep the building comfortable while maintaining energy efficiency. A building automation system can ensure that the system is running correctly by adjusting temperature settings, fan speeds, and airflows based on outdoor air conditions, weather reports, and weather trends. These adjustments can result in significant energy savings and improve occupant comfort.
Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality can also suffer as the weather warms up. Outdoor air becomes warmer, humid, and sometimes filled with spring pollen. A building automation system can help monitor and maintain indoor air quality by adjusting ventilation rates, controlling humidity levels, and detecting and mitigating air contaminants, creating a healthier and more comfortable environment for building occupants.
Lighting and Shading
Lighting and shading systems become critical in maintaining occupant comfort and energy efficiency over longer seasonal days. A building automation system can automatically adjust lighting levels and shading based on the time of day, occupancy, and outdoor lighting conditions. This can result in energy savings and a more comfortable environment for building occupants.
