Environmental Benefits of Building Automation

Construction Tech Review | Thursday, August 05, 2021

Building Automation is a revolution that facilitates management expenditures and is energy and environment efficient.

Fremont, CA: All automated components of a building's operation are managed by building automation systems. This can include security, plumbing, and mechanical systems, as well as HVAC and electrical systems. Individually responsible control of these systems by humans is challenging and expensive. Building automation, thankfully, eliminates the guesswork and optimizes efficiency.

Facilities management expenditures are reduced with automated building operations because systems control the operation of building components such as HVAC and lighting. Automation also reduces total energy use, resulting in a victory for the environment to help a building achieve green certification. By incorporating automation, certain buildings can save up to 30 percent on energy expenses.

Building automation has various positive outcomes:

Reduced consumption

Despite the fact that a building automation system (BAS) does not measure energy consumption, it can be programmed to operate within a set of usage thresholds. When the building receives a lot of heat from direct sunlight, for example, BAS with machine learning adapts to schedule HVAC systems to operate at low levels.

Reduction of unintentionally generated waste

Lighting and HVAC systems are controlled by standard building automation. When a building or wing is unoccupied for a long time, the BAS sends out a signal to turn off any systems that aren't needed during off-hours. A BAS can forecast when a building will be empty using artificial intelligence and organize system activities appropriately.

Lower utility cost

The cost of running a building can be enormous, accounting for three-quarters of total spending during the structure's life. Systems shut down to retain efficiency when operations are done through a BAS, lowering total runtime and boosting long-term useable life.

Reduced strain on the electrical grid

Large buildings that consume a lot of energy must also create a lot of energy in order to be deemed sustainable. Building automation systems can schedule tasks to reduce peak load, which is the building's highest daily energy use. This relieves strain on the electrical system and provides additional energy to the remainder of the grid.
