Unlocking New Energy Savings in 2016 

With energy costs increasing, building owners are looking new ways to reduce energy consumption and maximise their equipment performance in 2016.


Today, 15 Billion devices are connected to the internet, now referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT).  
It’s estimated that by 2020, 50 billion devices will be connected to the Internet, most of which will be essential to business operations.


Introducing a New Way to Manage Your Building 

BC Comfort is pleased to introduce an innovative new way to effectively monitor your building's performance using a cloud-based data logging system. 

BC Comfort Group has partnered with 38 Zeros, makers of a new cloud-connected data logging service that utilises cellular technology to lower remote monitoring costs by up to 90% while delivering complete “air-gapped” network security that eliminates any possibility of online threats.  
 


The 38 Zeros CloudLogger is secure, and remotely monitors your equipment through a cellular connection without requiring any connectivity to your network.  Data is delivered to 38 Zeros’ cloud service where the data can either be downloaded in .csv spreadsheet format, or pushed to any cloud dashboard.  

 


 

The 38 Zeros CloudLogger™ is able to connect to virtually any meter or building equipment including utility meters, temperature sensors, gas meters, water meters, boilers, chillers, HVAC systems, compressed air systems, rooftop units and more.  

Unlock Greater Energy Savings

BC Comfort sees this as a great opportunity to better serve our customers with by having real-time remote visibility into your equipment systems.

Because all data configuration is all handled in the cloud, CloudLogger hardware can be installed in a fraction of the time required for traditional data logging installations.

If you are interested in learning more, BC Comfort offers a no-strings attached web demo to demonstrate how the system works and how it could benefit your business.   

To learn more about how you can save more energy and money with a shorter ROI timeline, contact our Service team today.

How Good HVAC Design Can Improve Your Bottom Line
 

The indoor built environment plays a crucial role in our well-being, both due to the amount of time we spend indoors and the ability of buildings to positively or negatively influence our health.

Ventilation has proven to be a key factor in optimal indoor air quality. Recently, demand controlled ventilation has been required for large densely operated spaces. Demand controlled ventilation controls the amount of outside air based on the CO2 level in the space.
 

Studies have shown that conventional building design has often led to compromised indoor environmental quality (IEQ), including decreased ventilation which can lead to increased concentration of indoor pollutants.

Building-related illnesses and sick building syndrome (SBS) were first reported in the 1980s as ventilation rates decreased with significant annual costs and productivity losses due to health symptoms attributable to the indoor environment.

A recent U.S. study of 24 participants spent 6 full work days (9 a.m. – 5 p.m.) in an environmentally controlled office space, where they were exposed to IEQ conditions representative of both Conventional (high volatile organic compound (VOC) concentration) and Green (low VOC concentration) office buildings.

Additional conditions simulated a Green building with a high outdoor air ventilation rate (labeled Green+) and artificially elevated carbon dioxide (CO2) levels independent of ventilation.

The study found that, on average, cognitive scores were 61% higher on the Green building day and 101% higher on the two Green+ building days than on the Conventional building day (p<0.0001). VOCs and CO2 were independently associated with cognitive scores.*
 


This study shows cognitive function scores were significantly better in Green+ building conditions compared to the Conventional building conditions for nine functional domains.

These findings have wide ranging implications because this study was designed to reflect conditions that are commonly encountered every day in many indoor environments.

In essence, we can see there is a link between indoor air quality (IAQ) and cognitive ability, affecting decision making performance, which is ultimately linked to a company’s bottom line.
 
By ensuring that your building has a properly designed and installed HVAC system, you can mitigate the risk of poor indoor air quality, and create optimal conditions for health and productivity.

Outside air rates should be designed as per ASHRAE 62, the code for ventilation for acceptable indoor air quality.
 

BC Comfort can design and install the best IAQ  solution to your workplace to ensure that your staff decision making is not poor. For more information, contact our Design team today.
