Reduce Energy and Equipment Maintenance Costs with Smart Data

The problem of rising energy costs isn’t new.  Businesses, particularly multi-facility operators, have long been challenged with that line on their overhead budget. But we’ve been in that business for years, and can say with certainty that there has never been more opportunity to successfully mee...  continue

How Energy Management Systems Work – Part 3

HVAC equipment health is an often-overlooked factor that has a major impact on costs, especially within multiple location operations. Performance of an HVAC unit at a building degrades, for example, when a system refrigerant leak causes a compressor to overheat forcing other HVAC units to work h...  continue

The Advent of a Smart HVAC Network

In previous posts, we’ve discussed how today’s energy management systems convert “dumb” HVAC systems into a well-managed, smart HVAC network. Without this “smart” capacity, multi-facility operators have hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of assets (the cost of all the HVAC units at all their ...  continue

How Energy Management Systems Work – Part 2

Highly accurate, remotely-controlled, and secure networked thermostats installed in each location continuously gather temperature and weather data for transmission back to the energy management system, and are connected to each building’s HVAC system. At every building, these remotely-controlled ...  continue

The Most Important Benefit of Intelligent Energy Management

The savings and greater efficiency of implementing an energy management system are significant benefits, but the most important benefit is insight: Once implemented, the benefit gained from using smart data generated from the energy management system gives management a total view of their entire ...  continue

How Energy Management Systems Work – Part 1

In our experience, many legacy thermostats at individual buildings are inaccurate or defective in operation.  Even when programmable thermostats are used, they may not be set correctly to account for changing needs throughout the day or external weather conditions, or they may not be programmed a...  continue

How Smart Data Can Now Be Used to Reduce Energy and Equipment Maintenance Costs

The problem of rising energy costs isn’t new.  Businesses, particularly multi-facility operators, have long been challenged with that line on their overhead budget. But we’ve been in that business for years, and can say with certainty that there has never been more opportunity to successfully mee...  continue

Current Piecemeal Energy Management Approaches are Helpful, but Don’t Address the Challenges Experienced

Currently-available solutions for controlling energy costs, such as programmable thermostats, or Internet-linked thermostats, can help operators partially control their energy costs, by helping facility managers control temperature settings in each location. And on the HVAC equipment side, preven...  continue

The Benefits of Implementing a Cloud-based Energy Management System

Efficient energy management is essential for large multi-unit operators to cut costs and manage HVAC assets nationwide. Thankfully, technology has advanced, opening the door for cloud-based energy management solutions to enter the field.   Recently, a large multi-location retailer partnered w...  continue

5 Useful Insights Gained from an Effective Energy Savings Cost Reduction Program

After the successful rollout of the BAYweb Cloud EMS intelligent energy management system to its entire network of stores, one national retailer gained valuable insights that serve as useful guidance to other companies operating multiple locations who are seeking to reduce their energy and mainte...  continue
