The benefits of Building Automation Systems (BAS), sometimes referred to as Building Control Systems (Controls), vary, but the reasons usually fall into three main categories:
- They save building owners money
- They allow building occupants to feel more comfortable and be more productive
- They reduce a building’s environmental impact
A Building Automation System can reduce the utility bills for building owners. A more energy efficient building simply costs less to run.
Estimated energy savings from simply monitoring occupancy range from 10-30%, which, based on the size of your building, can create significant savings on utilities each month.
Typically, building owners or facility managers find that the money a BAS saves them can over time offset the installation and implementation of the system itself.
Also, optimizing the operation of the equipment for your facility can extend the life of the equipment, meaning reduced replacement and maintenance costs.
COMFORT AND PRODUCTIVITY
Efficient control over the building’s internal environment can create a healthier and more pleasant work environment. Furthermore, studies have shown that improved ventilation and air quality can have a direct impact on productivity and a business’s bottom line.
By reducing energy consumption, a BAS can reduce the output of greenhouse gases and improve the building’s indoor air quality, the latter of which ties back into bottom line concerns about occupant productivity.
