75F is excited to announce an investment from Siemens Ag. Next47, the global venture capital firm backed by Siemens, led the investment on behalf of Siemens Smart Infrastructure. The latest investment brings our total Series A funding round to $28 million. Next47 joins previous investors who have supported 75F including Bill Gates' Breakthrough Energy, OGCI Climate Investments, and WIND Ventures, among others.
On September 23rd, the local chapters of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE) hosted the 2019 Minnesota Energy Expo at the Radisson Blu - Mall of America in Bloomington. 13 session speakers took the stage, including a few from 75F, to speak about energy best practices in commercial buildings and the future of building automation.
So grab a bag of popcorn, a notebook, and a pen, and enjoy a couple shortened versions of our sessions!
Do people in your building complain about temperatures at their desk? Are you constantly trying to figure out where, why and how your HVAC system is making them uncomfortable? We have designed the 75F® DUMstat™ to put those questions to rest – permanently. Don't be fooled by the name: the DUMstat is at the top of its class.
The system is simple to install and data starts streaming in immediately. Just plug it in and walk away.
Re-lamping and LED retrofit projects are popular methods for reducing energy costs. Re-lamping can be an effective source of energy savings – but there are even larger opportunities you may not have considered. Recent advances in cloud computing technology means that an automated lighting system offers larger savings opportunities and an even shorter ROI than re-lamping or LED retrofits. Plus, smart lighting systems offer benefits like meeting WELL building standards for a greener, healthier building.
Our Advanced Lighting system considers local weather, building orientation and geography, and occupancy status to adjust the lights, ensuring that no energy is wasted. Our interconnected system also ensures you're never left in the dark – and we offer remote scheduling and control, too.
Restaurants are the most energy intensive commercial buildings in the United States, according to the Energy Information Administration, and they consume nearly three times the energy of the average commercial building per square foot. Special equipment, lengthy hours, and sheer demand create much of this consumption.
In addition to their costly energy consumption, restaurants are particularly prone to building pressure imbalances. A building pressure imbalance – either negative or positive – often manifests itself as difficult-to-open doors. If building pressure stays out of balance, restaurant buildings can suffer from a number of other symptoms, including trouble maintaining room temperatures, underperforming kitchen hoods, odors due to infiltration, back drafting water heaters (look for moisture, corrosion or melted plastic on top of the top of the heater), and condensation dripping from ceiling diffusers.
Here are some ways a smart building automation system can diagnose, solve, and prevent issues like pressure and temperature imbalances in restaurant buildings – while reducing energy bills by up to 50% in the process.
Nobody can juggle like a building owner. You likely have a mix of building profiles in your portfolio – and within any one location, you may have a combination of HVAC systems installed, including different topologies, brands, and models. Until now, you were forced to work within silos of these systems, or you faced an expensive and resource intensive investment to try to piece together these systems with custom programming and specialist involvement.
Today, you can retrofit sensors and controllers within that mix of systems. 75F is a flexible, affordable, easy to manage building automation system (BAS) that enables you to control your buildings’ HVAC, lighting, and indoor air quality, right out of the box. Whether you oversee one building or hundreds, you can manage your occupant experience from a single pane of glass, monitor equipment health, and save up to 50% on your facility’s HVAC and lighting costs. We handle your building's wellness so that you can spend less time dealing with HVAC problems, and more time focusing on what matters.
