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.

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.
