By using CoolAutomation’s remote management solutions, Balaruc les Bains Municipality was able to centralize control of multiple HVAC systems, optimize energy usage in line with building occupancy, conduct remote diagnostics, and comply with energy regulations.
Traditional Course of Action
Reliance on Local Control Systems
Traditionally, the municipality's facility management utilized local control systems to manage the HVAC systems across various buildings and sites. This requires on site attendance and system access to address issues on the site.
Integrating Various Systems
The local control systems operated separately, preventing a centralized view of all information required to view complete site status
Optimizing operational processes
As a result of this separation, the equipment was not operating efficiently, resulting in unnecessary energy consumption.
High energy consumption in unoccupied periods
As the system was not integrated, the equipment also operated during unoccupied hours, resulting in high energy consumption even when the facilities were unoccupied.
CoolAutomation’s Remote Management Solutions in Action
Comprehensive and Remote Control
By providing a centralized, cloud-based platform for remote HVAC management, CoolAutomation allowed the municipality to manage and monitor multiple HVAC brands across various sites. This eliminated the difficulty of dealing with disparate systems and provided a unified view of all operations.
Alignment with Building Occupancy Hours
The solution’s ability to synchronize HVAC operations with occupancy hours helped in significantly optimizing energy usage. By adjusting heating and cooling according to when buildings were occupied, unnecessary energy consumption was reduced.
Remote Diagnostics and Audits
CoolAutomation’s remote diagnostic features enabled detailed audits of remote sites. This assisted in identifying and rectifying inefficiencies, enhancing overall energy efficiency, and system performance.
Compliance with Energy Regulations
The remote management cloud-based solutions ensured compliance with specific energy regulations like the Tertiary Decree and BACS Decree.
Cross-brand, cross-site, multiple data points management system
24/7 remote access for Control and monitoring
Save on system energy consumption
Ensures regulatory compliance and requirements
CoolAutomation swiftly addressed our needs, preventing equipment damage and empowering us with comprehensive control.
