Why Monitoring-Based Commissioning is a Necessary Tool for Facilities

The complexity of an HVAC system and how it behaves is not limited anymore to that last compliant or just the set point to maintain pressure in a zone. It has become more complex in this new world of energy and carbon footprint reduction, well-being and outside air scenarios, and the number of fault conditions

Decarbonizing Healthcare Facilities in a Post-Pandemic World

While commercial and educational facilities went quiet during the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals and healthcare facilities worked overtime, adjusting their critical operations to ensure the safety of the public. These facilities, which already consume more than twice as much energy per square foot as hotels, schools and office buildings, now have to evaluate the impact of

Carbon Emission Compliance – Creating an Individualized Roadmap With MBCx

Multiple states across the U.S. are making a concerted effort to address climate change by minimizing carbon emissions through strict, fine-enforced limits. Buildings, specifically those in the commercial and residential sectors, have come under intense scrutiny for their high emission rates which account for approximately 39% of all carbon emissions in the U.S. Read more…

The Contractor’s System Optimization Opportunity

Mark Pipher is general manager and vice president at FacilityConnex, which sums up its fault detection, monitoring, and diagnostics product as “the voice of your equipment.” Pipher said that this sort of monitoring-based continuous commissioning drives new opportunities for HVAC contractors, especially in controls optimization and preventive maintenance. Part of the opportunity is due to

Hospital Makes Low Cost Energy Changes

As Prisma progresses in energy efficiency, Jacob Warner, CEM, energy manger, suspects the recognition will continue thanks to a simple, low-cost solution. “[Our engineering director] introduced me to a group called FacilityConneX, which is a fault detection diagnostic and continuous commissioning firm,” Warner says. “We began this with a pilot program at Patewood Memorial Hospital

Finding a Balance: Establishing Cost-Effective Air Optimization & Enhanced Patient Safety

The push for increased outside air, pressure deviations, and higher level of concern on infectious disease spreading have increased the facility team with the bigger job of balancing energy costs, environmental safety, and patient comfort. Monitoring-based commissioning offers to increase the facility teams visibility and balancing of these priorities by using advanced analytics to bring

The Challenges of Turning HVAC and Other Building Systems Back On as Campuses Reopen

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States, many campuses across the nation were forced to quickly shut down and become what is known as a “quiet campus.” Managing these unpopulated buildings while bracing for the reopening into a new normal is forcing building managers to reevaluate the approaches and technologies used to manage the complex mechanical
