About HVAC Systems
Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems are the core of comfort and energy performance in buildings & industrial facilities. Historically, controlling HVAC systems was an intensive & time-consuming manual process. There was typically a decision to be made between energy efficiency or comfort.
Today, every type of HVAC equipment including sensors, valves, actuators, electronic and pneumatic controls, boilers, furnaces, steam stations, chillers, cooling towers and other peripheral units can be integrated to a building management system (BMS) to provide you with optimal performance, maximum efficiency, and the greatest energy and operating cost savings. A properly designed and installed HVAC and Control System will quickly pay for itself.
About Building Management Systems (BMS)
Building Management Systems (BMS) are computer-based control systems that make it possible to integrate, monitor & control all of your building’s systems remotely, improving energy efficiency & automation. You can make informed decisions backed by data accessible from a single view in your BMS. Building automation systems typically contain the following elements:
- Field controllers
- A communication bus
- Network controllers
- Downstream end-devices for occupant control (thermostats, room controllers)
Integrating Building Management Systems with HVAC Systems
Whether you need to have your existing HVAC system retrofitted with the newest, most advanced control system or you require a completely new HVAC and control system, you’ll need to design, engineer and install the appropriate solution to solve your problems and meet your specific needs.
Many HVAC machines will need to be integrated with a control system through a third party technology. Your HVAC components will be connected to microprocessors, which can then communicate with each other or a computer. These microprocessors or computers can then be connected to the internet to allow for remote control and monitoring.
Every control system is custom configured to provide you with the appropriate input/output range and the functionality you require. Working with a team of engineering experts, like TMBA, can solve complex heating, cooling and ventilation problems that previously were often chronic and unresolved.
