Advocate for Environmental Sustainability with Smart Building Technology!

Today, April 22, marks 51 years of honoring Earth Day, the modern environmental movement . According to Earthday.org. “Earth Day 2022 is focused on accelerating solutions to combat our greatest threat, climate change, and to activate everyone – governments, citizens, and businesses – to do their part.”

Every aspect of life must uphold new processes to support a continued environmental balance; not only is this beneficial for monetary costs; sustainability is vital for our future, for the depletion of natural resources would lead to a planet-condition crisis. Therefore a regenerative movement ahead is a necessary direction to obtain any elemental balance. 

Smart companies are discovering that it is no longer a choice between going green and growing long-term profits — sustainability is the path to prosperity. So for both humanitarian and business reasons, it is imperative that companies of all sizes take action and embrace the benefits of a green economy.

The best practice for building operations to compel with rapidly changing environmental concerns, is by using technology to create smart buildings. A building becomes smart when its systems, HVAC, lighting, metering, security, etc., are linked together and work in unison. Thanks to the advancement of technology, smart buildings can address ecological concerns and become increasingly crucial for the sustainability of our environment. 

Here at Broudy Precision, our vision is to put our marketplace at the forefront of building technology. We believe in innovation and understand the importance of environmental sustainability; therefore, our mission is to help create “smart buildings.” Hence, offering cutting-edge building technology from trusted vendors intended to decrease a building’s carbon footprint by; reducing energy consumption and emissions by increasing efficiency and building energy optimization.

“A study by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) estimates that with smart manufacturing processes, a 20% reduction in energy intensity (energy intake divided by production volume) could result in up to 25 Billion USD in annual energy savings. Introduction of smart manufacturing capabilities takes a small investment when compared to the total cost of a manufacturing line, and the energy-saving ROI can be significant. “- Tosibox

TIPS FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE BUILDING 

1. Implement a preventative maintenance plan

Buildings SHOULD ALWAYS be prepared and modified to account for changing temperature, humidity, and weather conditions. With that comes the BAS (building automation system) changes, mechanical system changes, and system optimization. From a BAS standpoint, you will want to ensure that your system and interface perform optimally. First and foremost is updating your BAS to the most recent software rev, including all security patches, bug fixes, and new functionality. These small changes may significantly impact your system’s efficiency, energy use, and safety. Download our Preventive Maintenance Checklist Here

3. Improve and maintain a healthy Indoor Air Quality.

Good indoor environmental quality (IEQ) is essential for any building, especially if the parallel objective is a sustainable building environment. According to the EPA, if too little outdoor air enters indoors, pollutants can accumulate to levels that pose health and comfort problems. Unless buildings are built with unique mechanical means of ventilation, those designed and constructed to minimize the amount of outdoor air that can “leak” in and out may have higher indoor pollutant levels. 

IAQ Broudy Precision

“The quality of the indoor environment affects building occupants’ health, comfort, and performance. While building operating costs associated with energy receive considerable attention, salaries and employment costs associated with building occupants are often 100 times the annual energy costs.” – Indoor Environmental Quality and Sustainability.

This article examines what IAQ is, its role in your building, the importance of maintaining air quality (especially now), and how it ties into your HVAC system. As a bonus, we have included a list of 10 quality products that have been vetted and proven to fight harmful contaminants and increase your building’s air quality. READ NOW

Pressure Independent Control Valves (PICVs) Improve System Performance and Optimize Delta-T.

Siemens PICVs integrates three functions into a single device. Siemens PICVs have the unique advantage of always maintaining their full stroke, regardless of the maximum adjustable flow setting, to provide better control. This significantly reduces or eliminates hunting for the right actuator setting, resulting in better control and increased comfort. ​​

Every  Siemens  valve and actuator  is  factory tested and goes above and beyond with rigorous lifecycle testing for higher reliability. ​​

  • Red brass body with NPT-threaded end connections.
  • Low seat leakage rate (≤0.05 percent of Cv).
  • 50:1 rangeability per VDI/VDE 2173.
  • Spring-loaded, self-adjusting packing.
  • Accurate positioning to ensure state of the art temperature control.
  • Directly coupled electric and pneumatic actuators for easy mounting.
  • Sizes range from 1/2 in. to 2 in.
  • Valve designs provide equal percentage flow characteristic for water and linear flow characteristic for steam.
  • Stainless steel stem and metal-to-metal seats.
  • Repack and rebuild kits for field servicing.

Consists of two-way threaded valves ranging from ½- to 2-inches with maximum flow settings from 0.3 to 50 gpm and flanged valves with line sizes from 2½- to 6 inches with maximum flow settings from 19 to 860 gpm. The differential pressure operating range as low as 2.3 psi to as high as 90 psi. These valves control hot and chilled water with up to 50% glycol over a temperature range of 35° F to 250° F.

A smaller footprint matters.

No matter how complicated your pipe network, Siemens PICVs are the right fit. No extra piping is required when installing any size of Siemens pressure independent control valves.  No extra pipe means reduced material costs and fewer leak points.
