The golden age of software, creating analytical intelligence for HVAC systems

Mobile data processing and automation technology is changing the way companies control their HVAC systems, but also allowing field engineers to accumulate volumes of data to integrate into their maintenance work processes.

HVAC service software now provides the kind of analytical intelligence that can aid engineers to diagnose any issues or inefficiencies within the system, allowing the engineer to establish an operational landscape of the most complex of systems.

The huge benefit now to businesses that rely so much on their HVAC efficiency is the ability to diagnose quickly any issues within complex HVAC installations, and in some cases fix the issue without going onto site. Speedy diagnosis and fixing of any issues can have a dramatic impact on the bottom line for a business, and many businesses are now requiring this level of HVAC technology as part of their business continuity planning.

Superior intelligence saves energy

Energy Management is now a huge part of industry, so efficiencies and energy saving opportunities are calculated on a daily basis, which is purely down to the intelligence provided via sophisticated applications.

HVAC is a big part of most industrial installations overall energy usage, so the ability to integrate the data drawn via sophisticated monitoring software as part of a greater understanding of the energy used can help businesses establish sometimes significant efficiencies to made within their facility. It can outline where there is energy being wasted, that ordinarily wouldn’t have been detected in the past with aging HVAC systems. Financial payback can be quite substantial in the short and long-term with the right technology, data analysis and those who are able to interpret that data into cost savings.

Energy and Facilities Managers now look at cloud based technology as a must have within any large industry facility. They continually seek greater understanding and knowledge to saving energy, but also by working with onsite engineers they can have greater control over business continuity.

Software Companies working with contractors!

Software certainly isn’t new to the HVAC industry, but today more than ever, the input from contractors’ is crucial in deciding what features should be developed in the future. Seeking the ultimate solution in automation also means greater integration of the diverse range of technology within a factory or industrial environment. A one cloud based application central control system has been on the agenda for homes in the future, so where intelligence can substantially monitor and save energy, this will inevitably creep into our working environment. Energy managers can now detect and isolate energy usage right across the full spectrum of equipment and departments within a facility, so they will want to have the power to establish efficiencies collecting data via smart meters and further integration with systems software for HVAC and indeed other industrial machinery, i.e., wherever energy is being used.

Preventative maintenance knowledge

Cloud based technology has created a new dimension to monitoring all forms of technology and provides an extremely efficient resource for HVAC engineers, with service engineers able to carry out real time monitoring which could lead to a stronger program of preventative maintenance, reducing down time of HVAC systems and saving potential costly loss in production.

Bespoke tailoring of systems

One of the big advantages which is gained from data analysis provided by intelligent software, is the ability to design systems specifically for the space a great deal more accurately.  The analysis of engineering data to determine the energy requirements of the building can be quickly established, with an output of a perfect schematic diagram of the desired HVAC System.

The ‘in the cloud’ technological world is now opening up huge possibilities in all corners of industry. The benefits to businesses that utilise the most advanced HVAC systems with 24-hour monitoring, along with the data that is collected by Energy Managers, and the methods of how intelligent data from a vast array machinery and equipment can be accumulated, analysed and with processes to improve the incumbent infrastructure is the future for managing energy, and large HVAC installations. HVAC is a big contributor to the wider need to save on energy costs, so integration that is already possible, is also inevitable.
