Building Automation Technology: Save Energy and Money

There’s no doubt about it, operating systems in schools and municipal buildings are complex, and use a large amount of energy and money each month. While it’s important to ensure your building is at a comfortable temperature and has proper ventilation for the people inside, it’s also important to only use the energy needed to keep your operating system functioning properly. If you don’t, you could be wasting a lot of money, which can affect your bottom line.

Our expert team at Colorado Controls provides energy savings solutions to schools and municipal buildings to not only ensure you’re operating as efficiently as possible, but to also help put money back into your establishment instead of wasting it on your utility bill. From energy audits to installing building automation technology, we do it all. The best part? You could be eligible for grants, tax rebates, and other incentives where you could only have to pay for a fraction of your project, and perhaps not have to pay anything at all!

Energy Audits For Your School Or Municipal Building

When you are overseeing a building as large and complex as a school or municipal building, certain elements that keep the building running can easily be put on the backburner, one of those being your operating system. Sure, when the air conditioning stops working in the middle of the summer, it’s top of mind, but other than that, building managers don’t typically pay much attention to their operating systems unless there’s an issue. Well, by not paying attention to your operating system, you could be paying way more on your energy bill than you need to, which means you’re wasting money and energy without realizing it.

That’s where Colorado Controls comes in. Building standards have changed. Buildings, including school and municipalities, are being urged to have more energy-efficient operating systems to be more environmentally friendly. While it may seem like a daunting task to analyze your operating system to determine how efficient or inefficient it is, it’s actually very simple when you call us at Colorado Controls to help. We have the experience and knowledge to run an energy audit on your operating system to find inefficiencies and recommend tangible solutions. Here’s an overview of our energy audit process:

Our team will conduct an onsite energy audit to assess your current energy consumption.

From there, we will identify energy efficiency measures and automation solutions you can implement in your school or municipal building.

Depending on the solutions you decide on, our team can install building automation technology in your current operating system to make your establishment more efficient.

The longer you wait for an energy audit, the more money and energy will be wasted. Once you call our team at Colorado Controls, you will see how stress-free and easy our process is, and you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner. Call us today to get started!
