Software is often used to track energy use and perform energy analysis. But the Carolina Union uses it to eliminate heating and cooling empty rooms between events – with a direct impact on energy efficiency.

Average occupancy rates for conference rooms in the U.S. range from 30-60%. In most cases, that means heating or cooling systems are running in empty conference rooms 40-70% of each day. How can you stop this energy waste in your building?

When Jim Urbanski, Energy Manager at Wicomico County Public Schools in Maryland, participated in an online demonstration of Events2HVAC, he knew implementation would be easy. After studying the setup manual for just one hour, he began working and in just two days he had 160 rooms setup for automatic scheduling.

Last year, Jim Urbanski, Energy Manager at Wicomico County Public Schools in Maryland, spent 20 hours each week scheduling heating and air conditioning for after-school events. This year he spends just 20 minutes to schedule two weeks of events. That is a 99% reduction in labor hours, and he isn’t done yet.

Jamie Schools, Executive Director of Administration at Legacy Christian Church in Overland Park, Kansas, uses Events2HVAC to save time and energy by automating HVAC based on individual room schedules. Schools oversees facilities, finance, safety and security, and human resources for all of three of Legacy’s campuses – and they are soon adding a fourth campus.

At Savannah Christian Church in Savannah, GA, employees and church members are scheduling their own space using Dean Evans EMS® Professional, and Events2HVAC is automatically controlling their HVAC systems so that air is conditioned appropriately only when rooms are in use. They are saving energy and labor, and the automation has freed the facility manager to focus on other responsibilities.

Jeff Goebel, Physical Plant Manager at Minnesota State University at Moorhead (MSUM), knew there had to be a better way. He wanted an easier way for his employees to control HVAC equipment across campus. He heard about a software solution called Events2HVAC at a conference and looked it up online. In May 2010, MSUM became a beta test site for the software which works as a bridge between room scheduling software and building control systems to automatically control equipment based on scheduled events. The results have been impressive.

They plan to expand their use of the software to additional buildings in the near future.
