EMS Offers a Treasure Trove of Actionable Data

Annual savings: $120,693

THAT’s the kind of data you want to see on your energy management system.

But your EMS likely contains a whole treasure trove of data, beyond your sometimes astounding) energy savings. Actionable data such as:

Real-time Occupancy: Perhaps your maintenance team needs to visit a room; they can do so without disturbing guests.

Thermostat Calibration: Calibrations higher than 4% should be investigated.

Temperature vs. Setpoint: If there’s a wide variation, something is amiss.

EMS Devices with Low Batteries: Don’t change all batteries based on a schedule; change only those that need to be changed.

EMS Devices Offline: Identify which devices are offline and troubleshoot without having to enter a guest room.

Devices with Active Alerts: Troubleshoot online without having to disturb your guests.

The Most and the Least Efficient HVAC Devices:  Perhaps it’s simply a matter of room location. Switch out the overworked devices in those sunny rooms with the ones in shady rooms.

HVAC Systems Forced Off: Devices which run non-stop are forced off at a certain point. There are a variety of reasons a device can be forced off. For example, it might be an indication of a device that is failing, or of a patio door that was left open.

Runtime Data-Devices with the Highest and Lowest Runtimes: Again, could be indicative of units requiring maintenance. Visit the rooms listed on the report, investigate the possible causes (for example, dirty filters).

Rooms by RH%: Which rooms have a humidity problem? High humidity is an insidious and potentially expensive problem. It’s important to stay on top of it before humidity causes irreversible damage.

A feature-rich energy management system offers hidden gems of information. A treasure trove of data you can use to prolong the life of your HVAC equipment, streamline tasks and delight your guests.
