Magnolia Church in Riverside, CA, recently changed their church management software, and were faced with losing their HVAC integration as a result. But then they discovered Events2HVAC.
The return on investment (ROI) for most energy efficiency initiatives is measured in years, but this one is measured in months.
Software is often used to track energy use and perform energy analysis. But the Carolina Union uses it to eliminate heating and cooling empty rooms between events – with a direct impact on energy efficiency.
When Jim Urbanski, Energy Manager at Wicomico County Public Schools in Maryland, participated in an online demonstration of Events2HVAC, he knew implementation would be easy. After studying the setup manual for just one hour, he began working and in just two days he had 160 rooms setup for automatic scheduling.
Events2HVAC is spreading beyond the education and church markets. We now have our first installation at a major convention center, the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, MO. Joel Llorente, the on-site Johnson Controls facility manager, went from spending 20 hours per week scheduling HVAC and lighting systems to two hours per week. He said in a recent phone conversation, “Like Phil Robertson, I’m happy, happy, happy!”
Jamie Schools, Executive Director of Administration at Legacy Christian Church in Overland Park, Kansas, uses Events2HVAC to save time and energy by automating HVAC based on individual room schedules. Schools oversees facilities, finance, safety and security, and human resources for all of three of Legacy’s campuses – and they are soon adding a fourth campus. For him, Events2HVAC is a blessing.
Jeff Goebel, Physical Plant Manager at Minnesota State University at Moorhead (MSUM), knew there had to be a better way. He wanted an easier way for his employees to control HVAC equipment across campus. He heard about a software solution called Events2HVAC at a conference and looked it up online. In May 2010, MSUM became a beta test site for the software which works as a bridge between room scheduling software and building control systems to automatically control equipment based on scheduled events. The results have been impressive.
