Energy Saving Ideas
Installation of a Building Management System to control your Air Conditioning or Refrigeration plant can make significant power savings of up to 20-30%

An Optimal start time function calculates the required pre-cooling time of your building based on weather conditions and therefore reduces the unnecessary waste of energy. Motion sensors and timers can also be intergrated into these systems to control lights and boilers etc.
Energy Saving Tips
To get the most efficiency out of your air conditioner we recommend setting the thermostat at 25 degrees in summer (cooling mode) and if necessary 20 degrees in winter (heating mode). Minimise the area being cooled or heated by shutting doors to unused rooms. Clean your filters regularly making sure the indoor and outdoor units are dirt and dust free. Insulate your ceiling space, seal drafts and shade windows.
