What Is A Building System?
Building systems are essential systems for your plant, such as Electrical, HVAC, Protection, Life Safety, Lighting, Utilities, Telecom and Energy Management. These structures are rarely, if ever, autonomous entities; rather, they depend on one another to function. For example, most building systems rely on the electrical power base of the building; and computer systems also require additional cooling to function properly. Define equipment systems that demonstrate the relationship between systems, assemblies and components. You may then connect the equipment systems with the construction system that is part of it.
All building systems are usually built, developed, managed, maintained and assisted by their own expert domain team. They are also assessed and regulated both as an individual system and as part of a larger system and as part of the entire building.
Here are some of the reasons why you should consider using a building automation system.
Lower energy costs
With the help of the building automation system, HVAC and electrical systems operate more efficiently and reduce energy consumption and utility bills. A BAS not only helps to automate the building’s systems with sensors and timers, but also gathers data on the energy use of the building, which can be studied for potential improvements. This reduction in energy use not only reduces costs, but also reduces the environmental footprint of the building, which is of benefit to all.
The BAS automatically adjusts the temperature and lighting of the building, maintaining an ideal level of comfort within the facility. By increasing the level of comfort, the building automation system also reduces occupant complaints and can even help with productivity-which brings us to our next point.
If you’re considering a building automation system for your business, one of the benefits you’re likely to reap is increased productivity. Not only are employees more productive when they are comfortable, but because BAS allows your systems to run more efficiently, they are less likely to break down and require repairs that could disrupt day-to-day business operations.
Reduce maintenance costs
As mentioned above the systems of the facility run more efficiently when they are controlled by a building automation system that prevents breakdowns and other problems, particularly within HVAC systems. When controlled by the BAS, the building systems tend to experience less wear and tear and therefore last longer and require less repair. However it is important that your systems are still serviced on a regular basis, regardless of whether or not you are using a BAS.
Building automation allows you to monitor and control your building systems from anywhere at any time.
Building automation systems can be connected to security systems in order to increase security and peace of mind. These systems can be used to monitor what is happening within the facility, to provide alerts of suspicious activity, or to lock and unlock doors at specified times.
