Building Automation saves energy, so its good for the environment and it saves on energy costs.
An “all-off” switch near the building entrance can switch all lights off, all over the building, with just one touch. So no lights remain accidentally on.
Lights in any room can be switched off automatically when the room becomes vacated.
The precise amount of illumination can be provided for any situation, so energy wastage is reduced and comfort is increased.
Each room can have its own heating or cooling temperature and timer control. So unnecessary heating or cooling is reduced.
If energy saving is a major requirement of an installation, greater sophistication can be added to the design:
- Light sensors can detect daylight levels and automatically dim internal lights to reduce unnecessary artificial illumination.
- Windows or skylights can be automatically opened or closed depending on the internal and external temperatures, to reduce heating/cooling energy consumption.
- Blinds can be automatically lowered or raised according to sunlight strength, to reduce heating/cooling energy consumption.
Our Building Automation designs can incorporate many more, clever, energy-saving techniques.
With careful and experienced design, and combined with an effective insulation and ventilation strategy, an energy-efficient Building Automation system can substantially reduce energy consumption.
An energy-efficient building is an intelligent and sound economic investment. It adds lasting value to a building and saves on running costs.
