“Using the most advanced technology in the industry and experts who are knowledgeable and customer-focused, TEEM makes running an efficient building completely hassle-free,” said David Unger, chief operating officer.
TEEM is an add-on service, available in buildings using US Energy Group’s building energy management system (BEMS) and the USE Manager information portal. The service’s dedicated energy manager handles daily alert monitoring, reviewing all HVAC system issues and troubleshooting with the building staff to determine the exact cause of the issue. The expert also conducts trend analyses, identifying concerns, such as short cycling and heat imbalances. Solutions are recommended for ongoing operational issues and are tracked until they are resolved. Clients also receive comprehensive BEMS and USE Manager training for property managers, superintendents, and administrators, as well as unlimited phone support.
During weekly conference calls, the TEEM energy manager provides a status update on all open issues, and discusses the overall performance of the building. The client receives a building report card each week, providing three separate grades for the building. The Energy Grade reflects energy consumption in comparison to other similar buildings. The Comfort Grade is based on interior space temperature, and the Operations Grade is based on quantitative metrics reflecting boiler plant operations, such as stack temperature and water loss.
“TEEM clients can let us worry about the details,” said Jerry Pindus, chief executive officer of US Energy Group. “They have peace of mind knowing that their buildings are running efficiently, their tenants are comfortable, and they are saving money.”
