How To Improve Energy Efficiency In Buildings (Save 25% Of Energy Costs)

The need to reduce energy consumption has never been more pressing.

On top of the long-term push towards sustainability, we've seen a huge rise in energy costs due to the war in Ukraine.

So, we thought it was a timely opportunity to look at how best to improve commercial building energy efficiency.

How To Improve Energy Efficiency In Buildings

Surprisingly, although some energy-saving advice is available for homes, more needs to be said about commercial premises. Yet, there is an opportunity for many buildings to easily save 25% on fuel bills with minimum cost and disruption simply by following a simple 3-step formula:

  1. Maintenance
  2. Optimisation
  3. BeepBox

Let’s explore each step in more detail.

Step 1 – Maintenance

Gas boiler systems need regular maintenance to work at their optimum efficiency, and most sites have programs in place to ensure this happens.

However, only a few sites also regularly maintain their heating control system. The control system controls the boilers and directs the heating around the building. Without regular maintenance, sensors can become faulty, fail intermittently or fall out of spec, which causes the heating system to generate heat when not required, wasting energy.

Regular maintenance will pick up these issues (including any boiler cycling problems) and rectify them for minimal cost and with minimal disruption.

Step 2 – Optimisation

Optimisation means optimising the system to the needs of the building's users.

This is rarely done, usually because it's difficult and because of a lack of awareness of what systems can do.

Many control systems reside within the plant room of the building.

They were probably programmed when the system was installed and then never revisited. In the meantime, the needs of the building could have changed many times, and that original programming is no longer appropriate.

Part of the problem is that these systems were never designed to be easy to use. However, it is easy to upgrade a control system.

The overall heating system and boilers remain unchanged, and the system's efficiency improves.

Costs and downtime are minimised, but the return on investment can be significant.

Step 3 – BeepBox

The final step is to install an additional control system whose job is to optimise the running of the boiler.

The remarkable BeepBox system from Javelin can reduce gas consumption by up to 18%

What Is A BeepBox?

BeepBox is a unique product designed and built by our expert engineers to enable users to make significant savings on their energy consumption.

The system is designed to target inefficiencies inherent in the design of most heating control systems.

How Much Energy Can BeepBox Save?

BeepBox has been shown to reduce energy consumption by 17.6% in laboratory tests, a figure supported by real-world data from actual installations.

In addition, only a few buildings have their basic heating system correctly configured and optimised.

As part of the BeepBox installation and commissioning process, we will survey the whole system and make recommendations for further enhancements.

In practice, we’ve seen overall improvements of 25% or more. We’re confident BeepBox will save users money and have created a unique guarantee to make BeepBox a no-risk proposition.

How Does BeepBox Work?

The unique system is designed to target inefficiencies inherent in the design of most heating control systems.

Our BeepBox is a specialised control system that is installed alongside your existing system. It is non-invasive from a mechanical perspective and requires minimal downtime of the current system.

No additional plumbing or pipework is required. The installation comprises our BeepBox control system and some additional sensors to accurately measure the status and temperatures in your boiler system.

Using proprietary algorithms, we reduce boiler output at specific periods in the heating cycle to maintain heating output whilst reducing wasted energy.

In addition, during the commissioning process, we tailor BeepBox to your system's specific needs and characteristics to ensure optimum performance.

Because BeepBox work by targeting inefficiencies found in heating control systems, wasted energy can be reduced without having any impact on the heat output to the building.

Guaranteed Savings

We guarantee that you’ll save money with a BeepBox.

And we don't say that lightly.

If the system isn't saving you money during the first three months after installation, we will remove it - at no cost - and give you a full refund of all charges you've incurred.

How Much Does The BeepBox Cost?

We aim to keep costs down as much as possible for our clients.

That’s why we do not charge any installation, up-front or capital costs.

Instead, you rent the system from us by paying a monthly subscription.

These subscription charges will depend on the size of your building and the current boiler system.

There’s a calculator on our website where you can see how much you could save with BeepBox.
