Smart heating controls can improve a building’s overall sustainability
Implementing smart heating controls within buildings can actually bolster their overall sustainability, energy efficiency experts have argued.
Furthermore, such measures would contribute to a rise in the buildings’ overall value and marketability. In fact, research done by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) on the value of BREEAM certified buildings have shown they can command a rental premium of up to 19.7 per cent, and an increased sale value of up to 14.7 per cent relative to non-certified buildings in the same location.
These figures closely match work done by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) in California which calculated a net additional value of an office warehouse following a substantial ‘green’ makeover to be 20.7 per cent, with a 16-month return on the investment made.
One of the biggest hurdles in the development of smart, sustainable buildings is the fact that, in most case, heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting, security, fire systems, elevators, room booking systems, access control systems are in most cases separate systems, that don’t interact well with each other. And this is exactly where HeatingSave can excel.
HeatingSave – energy management integrated with access control systems
The best solution for reducing and thoroughly managing energy bills is the implementation of a solid and reliable Building Energy Management system.
Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.
