Saving Energy With A BAS
how to properly use them and get the most for your money


Building automation systems, which are present in more than half of all buildings in the U.S. larger than 100,000 square feet, save between 5 and 15 percent of overall building energy consumption. Generally, BASs are most cost-effective in buildings that consume lots of energy, such as data centers and hospitals. Older or poorly maintained buildings can also benefit greatly from a BAS retrofit, sometimes yielding savings of over 30 percent.
 
Hotel Room Automation
what are the options?


Hotel room automation uses a variety of techniques to turn off lights and reduce HVAC operation when a room is unoccupied-the two biggest users of energy in limited-service motels. Because hotel and motel guests typically do not practice good energy conservation behavior when checked into a room, there is significant opportunity for the lodging industry to capture energy and other savings through automation. Based on available studies, automation products can produce a 25 to 44 percent energy savings per room and can be used in virtually any hotel or motel to varying degrees.
