User-Friendly Building Automation Controls for Facility Managers

By Sarah Baker on May 9, 2019 11:12:53 AM

As a facility manager, your job is to keep your buildings operating smoothly. In reality, that can feel like a game of whack-a-mole (while a fire alarm is going off, and the basement is flooding). There's only so much you can get done in a day – and when it comes to making upgrades, the last thing you want is another piece of equipment to keep an eye on.

That's why we designed the 75F system specifically with facility managers in mind. We wanted a system with a dashboard view of building performance that could change the way you interact with buildings and reduce the time you spend driving and checking facilities every week. Our reporting tools provide insight into energy anomalies that would previously go un-detected – putting out fires before they begin. Quarterly health check-ins make it easy to coordinate with mechanical contractors, as well.

Easy Building Automation for Multi-Family Housing

By Sarah Baker on May 7, 2019 1:53:17 PM

Multi-family housing can come with a whole host of challenges for building owners and facility managers – especially when it comes to balancing temperatures across hundreds of units. We know it's hard to please a crowd but, at 75F, we can make your life a little (or a lot) easier when it comes to zone control and the occupant experience, all while saving you energy!

More specifically, we can help you provide exceptional comfort for residents with effortless temperature balancing across your entire building and individual control for hundreds of zones (as well as multiple buildings) with 75F building automation. Reap the benefits of modern technology, such as cloud computing, machine learning, wireless networking and mobile apps, to get remote control and diagnostics for all areas at half the cost of a traditional Building Automation System (BAS) and save 30% - 50% of your utility costs. Our system can be spec'd into a new build or quickly and easily retrofitted into older buildings, as well!

How 75F Increases Energy Efficiency for Rooftop Units

By Sarah Baker on Apr 30, 2019 9:56:00 AM

Do you have several rooftop units (RTUs) with nothing more than a thermostat to control them? 75F provides a simple way to get remote control and group your RTUs at a lower cost. Imagine having the capabilities of a building automation system at the cost of a WiFi thermostat. 

Retrofit existing or spec new build rooftop units with 75F to increase energy efficiency and enjoy remote control and diagnostics at a fraction of the competition. Advanced economizer controls, including Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) and comparative enthalpy economy, from 75F improve efficiency by up to 30%, while improving occupant comfort and indoor air quality. An easy installation and a lower cost, as well as payback in as little as one year, makes this an easy decision.

How the 75F System Works with VAV Systems

By Sarah Baker on Apr 18, 2019 6:13:00 AM

There's a lot of waste involved with VAV systems commonly used in office and commercial buildings. Typically, VAV systems operate with roof-top units (RTUs) in cool-only mode. The supply air temperature is held constant at 55°F and, when a zone falls below its setpoint, the damper closes and reheat is enabled. When a zone is above its setpoint, the damper opens fully to allow as much 55°F air as possible into the zone to cool the space quickly. This cycle often involves first cooling and then heating the same air. Since the RTU operates in cool-only mode, the 55°F air must again be reheated before it is discharged back into the space to keep the zone's air temperature in balance.
