Let’s look at the financial perspective for choosing superior automation
Interval Data Systems offers you a choice between having automation that operates consistent with ASHRAE guidelines (superior automation), or having what’s normally delivered (ordinary automation). You incur a significant difference in total cost of ownership (TCO) from this choice. Superior automation operates the building consistent with comfort and health & safety standards at the lowest energy cost without burdening the maintenance staff. Ordinary automation carries with it unnecessary energy, maintenance, and energy services cost that continue for the life of the control system (20+ years), resulting in a higher TCO.
When you invest in a new building, a major renovation, or if you want to reduce operating cost, automation has an exceptional payback. For a fraction of a percent of construction cost, you get to lower your ongoing operating costs for energy, energy services, and maintenance for the next 20+ years.
