6 Keys to an Effective Restaurant Building Management Solution

By Sarah Baker on Aug 20, 2019 6:18:00 AM

 

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.

An Easy BAS for Building Owners to Manage

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.
