Sept. 7, 2012: Energy Management System Offers HVAC Cost of Cooling Reporting for Commercial Buildings

AUSTIN, Texas — Incenergy has announced availability of a new Cost of Cooling Reports software feature as part of its wireless energy management system. According to the company, these reports allow calculation of HVAC-specific energy use for the commercial buildings market, which previously did not have access to this data.

Isolating the energy costs associated with HVAC use has previously presented a problem for commercial building facility managers, said the company. HVAC units often don’t have a dedicated electricity meter, but instead share meters with a wide variety of other equipment. Without the ability to separate the cost of cooling from other parts of their utility bill, most facility managers have been unable to quantify HVAC-related energy use and savings.

Barry McConachie, CEO of Incenergy LLC, said, “The inability to break down energy use causes hesitation in many facility managers’ decision making processes. Our Cost of Cooling Reports add to an entire suite of features that our wireless energy management system provides, giving managers both the tools to reduce their energy use and the visibility they’ve been asking for to make informed decisions.”

Incenergy's Building Portfolio Energy Management System is wireless and easy to install, making it affordable for existing low-rise commercial building retrofits, said the company. It controls smart thermostats and lighting, offers submeter electricity monitoring, and produces cost of cooling reports based on thermostats alone, all done remotely through a computer, iPad, or smartphone. Energy savings of 20 percent or more are typical, Incenergy said.
