HVAC Control Systems Explained
HVAC Control Systems – What They Are and Why They Matter
Large buildings like office buildings, schools, apartment buildings, government buildings and factory buildings have some of the highest energy costs in the country. And if you’re in the northern area’s of the country, make no mistake: its the ‘H’ in HVAC that is costing you most of that money. It’s essential that building operations managers implement technology and systems that reduce these costs without compromising on comfort or safety – this is where HVAC control systems like the Heat-Timer Platinum Series come in.
HVAC Control Systems are an Essential Step toward Building Automation
Building automation is about creating fully integrated systems to effectively manage environmental conditions and other elements within a building at maximum efficiency through an automated system. While full scale building management systems integrate things like lighting controls, sprinkler systems, fire control and security monitoring, by far the biggest cost benefit is their control of energy usage during heating and cooling. By integrating multiple systems for ease of use and control, the building benefits from having a single, central point for enhanced monitoring and analysis of energy usage, notifications of boiler inefficiencies, exact monitoring of the temperature and flow of domestic hot water, and fully customizable control for HVAC throughout each zone of the building.
While this has been all about maximizing energy savings, there’s a lot more to implementing a state-of-the-art HVAC control system. Firstly, the environmental benefits are significant, and there are often state and federal rebates to support these types of eco-friendly investments that take pressure off the grid. Building automation systems pay for themselves over time, primarily through the money they save on energy costs every month.
But perhaps one of the best things about HVAC control systems is how much they can improve the quality of life of building managers and HVAC repairmen across the county. Controls like the Heat-Timer® Platinum series are completely mobile friendly. Reporting faults no longer requires a boiler room visit as the system will send alerts to building operations teams right to their cell phones, noting where the fault occurred and what happened, so that repairs are faster and easier or even correctable by pushing a few buttons on your cell phone. Modern control systems like the Platinum series actually use some A.I. to learn the characteristics of your building which can reduce capacity during off-peak hours and ramp it up in anticipation of peak times.

Overall, the expert consensus is that 2019 is going to be a good year for the HVAC industry.
Particular growth in area’s like data centers and the educational market will lead overall growth in the sector which is expected to climb across the board as the reigns on capital investment continue to loosen around the USA.
Leading the technology trends in HVAC are the area’s of connectivity and smart design, as more and more commercial building owners embrace the power of building automation and within that, investments in greener and cheaper, heating and domestic hot water delivery and control systems.
HVAC Automation and Controls in Commercial Buildings
Heating and cooling is a big expense for commercial buildings, accounting for 40 percent of the electricity consumed by a typical building.
With utility companies offering better incentives to reduce electricity usage during peak times and the vast capabilities presented by the “Internet of Things (IoT) “, more and more businesses are jumping on the automation bandwagon.
‘Sensing and monitoring abilities and smart controls will continue to play a major role, and this year we expect to see even greater involvement in the complex task of building management,” explained Clay Steven, the manager of AHR Expo 2019, an HVAC industry conference held by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers and the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute.
In commercial HVAC automation, sensors, connected controls and equipment regulate a building’s HVAC and domestic hot water system based on monitored data on everything from water temperature, to occupancy, temperature, pressure, carbon monoxide levels and time of day. The level of connectivity of sensors and systems will continue to increase, with more and more building managers and HVAC professionals implementing advanced energy management systems to create greener, and less costly energy usage, while still providing tenant comfort.
So called smart controls (see Heat-Timer® Platinum Series Wireless Controls) and smart design will continue to expand and deliver even more value to clients with the implementation of AI in controls that can actually learn the heating characteristics of your building through a variety of sensors. Then these systems deliver alarms, and monitoring points right to the cell phones or iPad of interested building managers. Systems like our Heat-Timer Platinum Controls save operators money by both running your heating and domestic hot water at maximum efficiency but also by cutting wear and tear on your boilers and saving on expensive repair and replacement bills.
