Energy considerations within commercial buildings are always a top priority when looking to cut costs. By tracking the weather, monitoring room temperatures, and seasonal changes, energy auditors can easily predict whether energy saving measures such as window replacements, paint, VFDs, or new equipment are working. MachineSense™ products can automate the data collection to validate results.
Furthermore, power quality issues such as a low power factor or harmonic distortion may be difficult to diagnose. By tracking these measurements, pinpointing problem areas to optimize will be easier and more importantly, the effectiveness of those optimizations can be tracked.
Additional complimentary data on weather can be collected via open weather APIs or MachineSense™ can install a sensor with ambient temperature and humidity to directly monitor room temperature and related conditions.
