Occupant Experience: Optimize Air Quality, Comfort & Zone Control

By Ben Wallace on Jul 30, 2018 11:00:27 PM

Your building could be working harder for your occupants. The Occupant Experience (OE) is a key measure of building performance, creating multiple benefits for building tenants and owners alike, especially when combined with Operational Efficiencies (OE) to yield what we call OE2 . Your commercial building can improve productivity, health & comfort with smart zone control of temperature, air quality and lighting to suit occupant preferences and workflows.


Is your building working for your occupants?

At 75F, we're on a mission to make buildings work for the people, especially the people buildings are designed to accommodate - their tenants. And, all building stakeholders, from building owners to facility managers to architects, can agree on the importance of creating the optimal occupant experience. However, comfort is recurring top issue and tenant complaint for commercial real estate properties. And, with 85% of commercial buildings lacking intelligent building systems, yet commercial real estate (CRE) properties are projected to have the highest growth in IoT connected devices deployments, the time is right to get smart with your building. It's more affordable and easier than ever to install a sophisticated IoT-based building automation systems to reduce energy and other operational expenses, while proactively optimizing workplace environments for employees and other occupants.

VIDEO: VAV Box Controllers Deserve a Smarter Approach

By Ben Wallace on Jun 28, 2018 9:16:24 AM

The Variable Air Volume (VAV) with reheat HVAC systems and box controllers commonly found in commercial office buildings present a great opportunity for building owners and managers to save energy, improve operational efficiencies and better manage occupant comfort, with more sophisticated sensing and controls orchestration. These VAV with reheat systems tend to use the rooftop unit (RTU) to first cool supply air to a standard 55 degrees, then typically use the electric heat at the individual VAV box reheat elements throughout the building for heating supply air to desired temperatures for the zones. Though, the traditional VAV system has several issues with inefficiency and lack of sensing and controls management.

Check out this video to learn how you can improve building performance with operational efficiencies and a better occupant experience with the 75F Smart VAV with Reheat solution.
