Building automation systems market will grow continue to grow globally and is expected to reach a total market value of more than $36 billion by 2015 according to a new market analysis by ABI Research. Recessions always bring a re-evaluation of energy management and calls for new ways to ensure organizations and nations use energy more efficiently. The same is true in the latest downturn and it is driving significant interest and activity in the market for building automation systems.
Energy use within commercial buildings has been growing year-on-year for decades and now accounts for up to 20% of national energy consumption in many developed countries. Worldwide, buildings consume approximately 42% of all electricity, surpassing any other asset. This makes it a prime target for energy efficiency and environmental measures. To achieve sustainable energy consumption levels, it is essential that appropriate and effective building management systems be employed. These building automation systems must include applications such as HVAC and lighting controls.
Building automation technology by Advanced Control Corporation provides industry-leading HVAC technology. Temperature control through the proper building automation system is an ideal way to lower energy consumption by insuring that each area is accurately monitored and maintaining the specified set points. The smart building automation software that is used by Advanced Control Corporation analyzes energy use to provide energy savings and still maintain the comfort of the inhabitants. In addition, it has the capacity to receive, store and analyze metering and sensor data provided to optimize and track energy use.
Advanced Control also has the technology to help you increase your building’s electricity efficiency and lower your costs with lighting control. The range of control can be from a basic control system for lighting and equipment switching applications which are ideal for use in facilities where time-of-day control is being managed from a time clock or centralized building management system to a fully automatic lighting control for all of your facilities lighting circuits. These lighting control systems can be incorporated as part of a new construction project or retrofitted to your facilities existing lighting circuits to allow all types of buildings to have the efficient control of the lighting circuits.

Advanced Control Corporation in Florida can help you reduce your energy bill with lighting control. It’s simple, straightforward, and most importantly – it pays for itself. Since lighting represents over 40% of average electrical energy cost, it’s easy to see that leaving lights on when a room is unoccupied wastes electricity and is environmentally irresponsible. It leads to higher energy cost, a burden on your HVAC system, as well as wasted lamp life and higher maintenance costs.

This Thursday, April 22, 2010 is the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day – reminding individuals to be conscious of their impact on the planet. The issue of preserving our environment will be top of mind for many in the building industry. Most of the electricity in the U.S. is generated by burning fossil or nuclear fuel, so one of the easiest ways to be green in the building industry is to automate systems for energy efficiency. By reducing the use of energy and resources, companies will lessen their carbon footprint on the planet – and save money while doing so.
Advanced Control Corporation has been a green company for over twenty years, and is the industry leader for developing environmentally sound methods of building energy management and systems maintenance. Advanced Control can help your company save money by reducing energy costs in a variety of ways.
Advanced Control Corporation designs, installs and services building automation and energy management systems that monitor air handling units, variable air volume boxes, indoor air quality (CO2), indoor relative humidity, exhaust air systems, chilled water systems, lighting controls and more. Advanced Control will coordinate a control system that is nearly effortless to update and maintain, while reducing energy use, saving money and decreasing carbon footprint.
Earth Day serves as a reminder for all businesses to be environmentally-aware. However, sustainability and preserving the environment are issues that should be high priority year-round.
