Most colleges and universities run HVAC on a daily building schedule, returning equipment to unoccupied settings only at night. These situations are ripe for savings with Events2HVAC.
Two new features of Events2HVAC (v.1.5 and higher) permit users to automate switching between Events2HVAC schedules and backup building schedules in case of lost communication from the server.
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 the bottom line.
Events2HVAC is spreading beyond the education and church markets. We now have our first installation at a major convention center, the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, MO. Joel Llorente, the on-site Johnson Controls facility manager, went from spending 20 hours per week scheduling HVAC and lighting systems to two hours per week. He said in a recent phone conversation, “Like Phil Robertson, I’m happy, happy, happy!”
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.
Beta site testing of the Events2HVAC product has begun at MSUM!
We are looking for 2 beta test sites to be deployed in the next month.
Please contact Streamside Solutions if you have the following site characteristics:
1. You are using a Dean Evans EMS product and have it installed at your site (not hosted).
2. If you have one or more of the following building automation system networks:
b. Johnson Controls MSEA
c. Proliphix Networked Thermostats
3. You have a dedicated PC or server that can access the EMS database and the HVAC network.
Beta testers will get the use the software free during the test period and will have the opportunity to purchase licenses at a significantly reduced price.
