The Importance of BMS (Building Management Systems)
With energy prices at an all-new high there is no better time to think about how you can take control of your energy use. Building Management Systems (BMS) not only keep your buildings environment safe but can transform your buildings energy consumption. Helping you to operate a more sustainable, greener building.
What is Building Management Systems (BMS)?
Building Management Systems are computer-based operating systems that control all the mechanical and electrical equipment that operates within your building.
BMS configures your Mechanical & Electrical systems automatically to ensure safe and comfortable working environments, whilst running at optimal efficiency. Helping you to save energy costs and reducing your carbon footprint.
The major M&E systems controlled by BMS include:
Hot Water System and Central Heating
BMS ensures the proper and efficient functioning of hot water systems and central heating systems. It can be configured to suit your buildings specific needs to improve efficiency and energy costs. For example, in buildings such as offices where employees often spend most of their time in a small number of areas, BMS can be configured to heat only essential areas. Consequently, providing a more condensed heating service.
HVAC / ventilation System
BMS ensures your buildings have efficient air quality and adheres to laws and regulations surrounding building safety. The duct temperature, pressure, and humidity, as well as the exhaust temperature are all connected to the BMS. As a result, keeping the air that circulates within your building fresh and free from harmful fumes.
Electrical Monitoring System
BMS monitors the amount of electrical power used in your building and the main electrical switches. This makes sure your building is effectively lit whilst being efficient as possible. It also saves you the manual effort of switching each light on & off, especially helpful in larger buildings.
