How Are HVAC Systems And Smart Building Related?

By Michael Rosario, Construction Tech Review | Tuesday, February 23, 2021

The use of smart building technology to HVAC systems has vast potential in construction companies. IoT and other technologies can help in achieving the present and future energy goals by providing the required tools to perform the tasks. 

FREMONT, CA: The much-talked-about smart buildings are assumed to be improved intelligent systems that leverage green building ideas. Unlike the assumptions, it is an entirely different concept that is combined with multiple technologies, automated controls, and decision-supporting software to bring a rapid and responsive setting.

Smart buildings are designed with sensors that merge with robust cloud software platforms to help in communicating, managing, automating, and controlling the systems from a distant place. IoT assembles advanced technologies to track several environmental measures, such as humidity, temperature, and light. It also evaluates the functionality of building systems and triggers facility operations using real-time data.

There are several ways in which smart building technology can provide a vital edge in consuming maximum outcome from the HVAC systems.

Energy Effectiveness:

Smart buildings can include different communication technologies that allow the blending of diverse HVAC systems in a structure. The current energy efficiency opportunities can rely on the contemporary HVAC infrastructure that is installed within the building. On the other hand, IoT technology can interface with individual thermostats and facilitate cloud-interface for controlling and managing thermostat. The advanced Building Automation System (BAS) can access only restricted sensor data. But smart HVAC systems can increasingly integrate additional sensor data and deliver the highest comfort to the occupants.

Analytical Preservation:

The HVAC systems need to have regular maintenance schedules as it is the center of any constructed building. It comprises wide-ranging checkups, services, and maintenance at specific periods and occurrence. Smart building technology provides transparency in real-time, along with the operational condition of critical HVAC resources to find the appropriate solutions for the flaws. The chances of a machinery failure can lead to expensive repairs with harsh concessions of tenant operations. The accumulated IoT, real-time data from critical HVAC assets can enable AI, which can be used for advanced analytics to spot potential defects before they act.

Real-Time Cloud Displays:

With the help of IoT, companies can have live dashboards via a cloud platform. They can access real-time HVAC data from anywhere at any time. Constant monitoring of HVAC systems saves a lot of time for the building engineers as it allows them to remotely track the equipment operations via mobile devices, while not on site.
