Building Management Systems Are Shaping the Future of HVAC. See How Brownson is Teaching Cutting Edge Curriculum with Our Emphasis on DDC Training in Anaheim, CA
Let’s Get One Thing Straight, What Does a Building Management System Do Exactly?
To paraphrase Honeywell Business Solutions, a building management system provides an enterprise-level, open protocol solution that provides convenient, single-point monitoring and control of a building’s HVAC lighting, energy management, and environment controls.
This may include:
- Air conditioning
- Burner/boiler and combustion controls
Why Employers Are Turning to Building Management Systems
The aim of integrating a building management system is to increase occupant safety and comfort, while also increasing operation and energy efficiency. This is done through a whole range of HVAC energy, lighting, air quality, gas detection, and smoke management solutions.
Coordinating these systems “under one roof” (pardon the pun), and synchronizing their responses creates a safer and more energy efficient building. It also produces better overall response in the case of an emergency.
Installing a building management system allows for:
- Enterprise-wide view and automated building control process
- Information sharing between departments
- Increased productivity and operational efficiency
- Improved response time to events
- Reduce installation and life cycle costs
Ultimately, the benefits of streamlining operations and energy efficiency saves the enterprise money. And with all things business, it’s all about the bottom line.
