As a commercial, industrial or institutional building owner, you may already be thinking about establishing a building automation system (BAS). Installing a BAS may also have you wondering about the possible benefits and whether the value you’ll gain justifies the initial investment.
A building’s heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC), electrical, and security systems can all be better controlled with the help of building automation systems. The level of complexity of these control systems varies according to the type of building and the goal it is trying to achieve, and each one is unique.
A building automation system has a number of benefits, including the following.
1. Lower utility expenses
Increasing the efficiency of HVAC and electrical systems is made possible through the use of building automation system (BAS). Building automation systems do more than automate a building’s operations; they also collect data on the building’s energy use, which can be used to identify areas for future improvement.
This decrease in energy use not only saves money, but it also lessens the impact the building has on the environment, which benefits us all.
2. Comfort has been improved
The temperature and lighting in a building are automatically adjusted by a BAS to ensure a comfortable environment. The next point we’ll discuss is how a building automation system might improve productivity by decreasing occupant complaints.
3. Enhance output
As a business owner, one of the most likely benefits of installing a building automation system is an improvement in productivity. Not only does a BAS allow your systems to work more efficiently so that they are less likely to break down and necessitate costly repairs, but it also makes your personnel more productive since they are more comfortable.
4. Reduce the cost of maintaining your property
When a building’s systems are controlled by a building automation system, they run more efficiently, preventing failures and other problems, particularly in HVAC systems.
A building’s systems are more likely to last longer and require fewer repairs when they are monitored by a BAS. Maintaining regular system maintenance is critical regardless of whether you employ a BAS.
5. Increased safety and protection
As a result of the integration of building automation systems with security systems, safety and peace of mind are enhanced.
For example, these systems may enable real-time surveillance, notifications of suspicious activity, or the ability to have the doors lock and unlock at predetermined periods.
6. Assembling information
Using a building automation system, you can monitor and operate your building’s operations from anywhere in the world.
We also keep a close eye on the data from your building’s systems so that we can act swiftly if there are any problems. We can respond to problems instantly rather than allowing them to fester and become more serious over time with building automation systems, which include computer controls or summoning a technician.
