The Benefits Of Energy Management Systems For Commercial Buildings

Businesses of all sizes are optimising workplace heating or looking at ways to incorporate more energy-efficient and low-cost strategies. With rising energy tariffs and increased awareness of our environmental impact, it's time to look at all the possibilities.

There are several options available to businesses, many of which are championed by the Government. They include solar panels , heat pumps and other products that boost efficiency & directly impact your carbon footprint.

While these are desirable options with their own advantages, investing in a Building Energy Management System might be your best bet.

BeMS are becoming increasingly intelligent and can impact your finances and CO2 savings. They are also cheaper to install, less disruptive and will provide users with immediate benefits.

We've previously looked at the benefits of BeMS over traditional heating methods, but let’s take a look at the reason for these systems being the ideal starting point when it comes to optimising workplace heating.

Financial Benefits Of Energy Management Systems For Commercial Buildings

Lower Initial Costs

The initial purchase of a heat pump or the cost of buying and installing solar panels is often enough to make people think twice.

The promise of a long-term return on investment can be the selling point, and while this may be the case in the future, optimising workplace heating should ideally offer you an immediate benefit.

A quality Building Energy Management System will boost efficiency and reduce the need for manual intervention right away.

This means that not only could you be saving on the system's initial price by choosing a BeMS, but you are more likely to notice quick results and lower bills.

Maximise Return On Your Existing Systems

As well as cutting installation costs, many businesses are looking for quick-fix solutions without understanding which areas of their systems need repairing. This can result in companies replacing systems that are still in working order.

Those who don’t understand the possibility of a quick repair or perhaps don’t have time to research professionals like Javelin Controls may assume replacements are the only option. Less qualified companies may also push them to replace entire systems if they think there is money to be made.

That's why a thorough understanding and information from resources such as our blogs can be invaluable.

Instead of switching to solar panels or heat pumps while your current equipment is still in good condition, utilise the function of a BeMS to maximise your return.

Linking your systems to a control panel will ensure they are being optimised and utilised to their full potential. Energy costs can be reduced because a BeMS can more precisely match heating output to the exact needs of the building vs. just turning the heating on using a program timer that was probably programmed years ago and forgotten about.

Maximising The Efficiency Of Energy Management Systems For Commercial Buildings

So, a BeMS could save you money both in the short and long term.

But as well as financial incentives, reducing overall energy consumption can also positively impact the environment.

Whether you’re looking to invest in a BeMS from Javelin Controls - or already have one installed - every step must be taken to achieve full optimisation and utilise all of its capabilities.

Correct Programming

Once installed, Building Energy Management Systems must be programmed correctly for your premises.

For example, managing each area and component can be a struggle if you have a large site.

But programming a heating system via a nice UI is far easier than trying to use a program timer or the front panel of an older control system in the plant room.

Each room in your property will need heating at different times and in different amounts. This will depend on a few factors:

  • Size of the room
  • Quality of insulation
  • Number of occupants
  • Length of time it’s being used
  • The contents of the room
  • Time of day
  • External temperature
  • Personal preference of occupants

Ensuring every precaution and every factor is considered whilst programming your system will optimise its performance.

That’s why we always recommend communicating your priorities in terms of efficiency and function during the initial consultation.

Specialising in BeMS controls, our team is well equipped to optimise workplace heating and cooling and can link every aspect of your building together in one holistic group.

Complement Your BeMS With Intelligent Sensors

Sensors are a great way to get the most out of your systems.

They can carry a vast array of highly targeted and accurate data.

Sensors can help increase the capacity of your BeMS and its capabilities to match the needs of your business more closely.

The sensors may be linked to:

  • Internal and external temperature
  • Occupancy
  • Access systems
  • Humidity
  • CO2

These sensors can be tailored for your building’s particular configuration and will minimise the risk of incorrect adjustments.

However, it is vital to check that they are operating correctly and measuring the correct levels accurately. Service engineers will be able to run checks as they monitor your BeMS, and you can add sensors when you feel it is needed.

This allows you to keep up with any growth and expansion that may happen over the years. Your BeMS will be able to keep up with demand and prolong the life of your current systems without reinvesting in simple, single-function products like solar panels.
