As a property management professional, you are constantly looking to justify any and all investments you make for your facility. In many cases, this calculation is very simple.
Take for instance a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD). When you hook up a VFD to your facility’s HVAC equipment, you can put a meter on that piece of equipment to see how much energy it is consuming compared to how much it was consuming before.
Don’t miss your final chance to get training on Computrols Building Automation System in 2019. We’ll be hosting our CBAS Level I Training Course from December 11th to the 13th at our state-of-the-art training facility just outside of New Orleans, LA.
On Monday, October 14th, Computrols will be exhibiting at the MSCA19 Conference put on by the Mechanical Service Contractors of America. The conference will be held at The Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, Colorado and feature three full days of educational sessions, an exhibitor trade show, and a number of optional activities for attendees.
Adding HVAC controls to the repertoire seems like a natural evolution for many mechanical contractors but in reality, most are not well-prepared for the additional challenges that come along with supporting this new line of business. To successfully add controls to your offering, you have to be willing to push your service team beyond what they are currently doing, add at least one employee that is solely dedicated to controls, and push your salespeople to sell a new product that they are unfamiliar with. Join us on Thursday, November 7 at 12pm CT as we share a blueprint on how mechanical contractors can address these challenges and more to successfully start a controls division.
As property management professionals start looking at not only the first cost but also the total cost of owning and operating their assets, the question lies, “how does one assess the total cost of selecting a particular product or service partner?” Depending on the piece of equipment or particular service, calculating the total cost of ownership (TCO) may be simple, but with technology as complex as building automation systems (BAS), there is an abundance of factors to consider. Below, we have put together a comprehensive checklist of potential expenses associated with the operation of a BAS over 5 to 10 years. For more information on this topic, you can also download our Ebook or view our webinar on Understanding the Life Cycle Cost of a Building Automation System.
