HVAC costs represent a large percentage of most campuses’ energy use and presents an opportunity for reducing their carbon footprint. SRT Labs will temporarily install occupancy sensors and review data from existing systems to provide recommendations on optimizing expenditures on heating and cooling in the form of micro-adjustments to HVAC settings. These changes on smaller time or space scales than are currently implemented by the facility BAS in order to control climate only in the HVAC zones where occupants are located.
SRT’s work in integrated software systems is making the automation of micro-level climate control attainable. Logic-based automation tied to class schedules or occupancy sensors can reduce staff time required to make these adjustments by hand and minimizes complaints from users.
Bridging the Digital-Physical Divide
Once the M1 Platform is deployed for HVAC optimization, you can layer in more hardware and software, allowing you to centralize, monitor, and analyze data from systems across your campus.
