Troubleshooting HVAC issues (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) is a common challenge across buildings new and old. Even where new buildings are designed with high-level performance credentials in mind, it does not mean they are free from issues. Highly accredited buildings often come with significant heating, cooling, and control issues that are only apparent after they have been handed over to the client and when they become fully operational. Older buildings can often face the same problems. Understanding why these problems arise and how best to approach them is essential to ensure that your building runs at an optimal level. In many cases, the best approach is to partner with an energy expert who can guide you in the right direction.

Businesses often mistakenly believe that because a building is claimed to be energy efficient that it will always be this way. Often the Building Management System has not been optimally commissioned, the heating and cooling systems aren’t working together effectively or there might be issues with air supplies.

“Modern smart buildings often have a lot of untapped potential for efficiency; but without the right commissioning and calibration, they’ll never be able to perform to the level to which they were designed.” say ETS Energy
