After a building has been optimized, proper operations and maintenance (O&M) becomes the tool that will enable it to sustain its best performance. As might be expected, as building systems become more efficient and more tightly controlled, they also become more complex. In turn, so does O&M. Therefore, this column assumes that everyone understands the importance of general maintenance of equipment to maximize its lifespan, optimize efficiency, and minimize operating costs. In green buildings, however, it often is necessary to go beyond the proverbial "boxes."
Facility managers and owners must run their facilities’ operations as cost-effectively as possible. Today’s advanced controls systems make that effort more successful than ever by bolstering energy efficiency, lowering costs and offering intuitive operation....More
This webinar will walk you through a systematic approach to maintaining building controls systems and the benefits that are gained through this approach, both during building startup and throughout the lifecycle....More
