Read how BuildingLogiX’s Connected Building Services (CBS) improve chiller plant performance through performance-based commissioning.
Managers can minimize operating costs by prioritizing the health and performance of a building. Enhancing the performance of your facility often starts with your chiller plant, which is the centralized system that provides the air conditioning for your HVAC system. Chiller plants are the largest consumers of electricity in a typical building or campus. Their complexity, along with the lack of technical training needed to interpret chiller performance data, often cause building managers to miss minor problems, leading to significant issues later.
So, how can you reduce energy consumption when you don’t know how much energy your system uses? BuildingLogiX’s innovative chiller energy management system provides precise data on your chiller plant’s performance. Our strategic energy management solutions allow chiller predictive maintenance, which improves energy performance and reduces costs.
The challenge for all chiller plant operators is to achieve maximum reliability at optimized operating costs. By utilizing our BuildingLogiX Data eXchange, you receive real-time chiller performance data that helps you make continuous improvements. Our BDX chiller plant portal provides fully visualized data, so your facility team members can pinpoint underperforming sections of your system. Some of the benefits of our strategic energy management solutions include:
By learning where your systems are inefficient, you can make cost-effective improvements that improve energy efficiency and maximize the health of your building. We’ve applied our connected building solutions to over 500 million square feet, leading to energy reductions as high as 30%!
BuildingLogiX’s CBS solutions and chiller plant portal enable you to make continuous improvements to your building. This commissioning helps your building achieve peak levels of ventilation and health.
The data provided by CBS allows you to deliver the right information to the right person at the right time, so the technician arrives at the site with knowledge about:
- What’s wrong
- Where the problem is located
- What tools are required to fix the problem
This information extends the capabilities of your maintenance team, which reduces repair time and saves money.
Our data visualization tools include custom dashboards that offer the depth of information you need to better understand your building’s health. With our visualization services, you can customize what each employee has access to, ensuring they always have the right data on the job.
Healthcare facilities are often 24-hour operations, meaning their chiller plants operate all day throughout the year to maintain patient comfort. Healthcare facility managers use chiller performance data to monitor the efficiency of their systems and make improvements continuously. With 24-7 operation, small improvements in chiller plant efficiency translate to large operational savings.
Local municipalities use our strategic energy management solutions for preventive maintenance that saves taxpayer money. This performance-based commissioning helps understaffed maintenance teams reduce energy costs by detecting and fixing minor problems before they become large and expensive.
The chiller plants of a college or university represent a mission-critical system of daily operations. The maintenance team for a major university is responsible for the daily operations of dozens of buildings on a large campus. Our chiller plant monitoring system provides key operational data in easy to interpret visual graphics. These enable improved plant oversight by more people on the maintenance team. In fact, the origins of the chiller plant monitoring system were to help large universities cut through the complex system operations and efficiently distill key operating metrics. This tool improved operational reliability and decreased utility costs.
An efficient chiller plant leads to healthy indoor air quality (IAQ) for schools, at the lowest possible operating expense. Local school districts use chiller performance data supplied by BDX to improve to optimize operating costs. The savings provided by our solutions can be invested back into the school district, enhancing the learning experience for students.
