With every passing day, technology progresses by leaps and bounds. Everything from our cars to our mobile phones are becoming more advanced, offering features we never thought possible. So how can we overlook the buildings we live and work in? It only makes sense for our homes and offices to become as smart as the devices we use. The world we live in is dynamic and therefore, spaces we live and work in have to reflect this by being dynamic as well.
Legacy Companies, Inc. is the Twin Cities' leader in commercial mechanical contracting, and has been the service contractor for HOM Furniture for the last few decades. When HOM Furniture was interested in boosting their energy efficiency and came across the 75F product line, Legacy was the go-to to install the system.
75F’s building automation solution is a green, easily-installed, low cost system that provides an exceptional occupant experience and makes it easy to balance temperatures across hundreds of zones. By studying and analyzing usage patterns and heat loads in your building, the 75F system can proactively manage the building’s temperature, lighting, and indoor air quality to keep the indoor environment comfortable and consistent.

As a developer, you have a lot on your plate. If you're looking to install a Building Automation System (BAS), that solution is supposed to make life easier – not more complicated. That's why we created the 75F smart BAS with developers and engineers in mind. It's fast and easy to install, saves 30-50% in energy costs, and can automate everything from HVAC and lighting systems to hydronic controls.
Here are a few of the advantages 75F provides to make our system the perfect fit for developers.
Huge Energy Reductions at a Low Cost
What defines the load for chiller and boiler plants? It’s how the water is used throughout the building and it makes sense that the most effective way to improve plant performance is to reduce the load in terminal units, such as air handling units (AHUs), coils, and radiators. That’s where 75F excels. IoT sensors and machine learning predict and optimize terminal units to dramatically lower water consumption to save as much as 46% of the utility cost.
As people become more aware of environmental issues like climate change, energy crises and depletion of non-renewable resources, more people are opting for options that would be beneficial for the environment. According to the UNEP, globally, 40% of annual energy consumption and up to 30% of all energy-related greenhouse gas emissions are caused by commercial buildings.
Smart Buildings are the best solution for this problem and investing in a smart building also adds to the brand’s image. The largest companies and corporations in the world are starting to pay more attention to their environmental protection policies and have begun to invest in energy efficient alternatives.
But a smart building offers more than just energy efficiency. Here are three more reasons why smart buildings are the future of commercial buildings in the world.
