Featured ProductThe Environmental Index is a powerful tool to help facility managers identify operational problems, and manage energy conservation measures to ensure sustainable performance.
Soaring energy prices and a growing environmental consciousness have renewed everybody's focus on sustainability, energy efficiency, and minimizing building energy consumption. Facility managers know too well that sacrificing human comfort costs even more in terms of lost productivity and revenue. Comfort is influenced by temperature, relative humidity, gaseous contaminants, lighting, dress, and other factors. So the challenge is how to measure comfort objectively.
Our Environmental Index provides a simple and effective solution.
Starting with temperature as a key component of comfort, the Environmental Index, expressed as a percentage, reflects how close the zone temperature is to the effective heating and cooling setpoints. Accessed through a browser using WebCTRL.
The Environmental Index can also use relative humidity (measured at the zone or return air) as well as contaminants like CO2. Every zone, area, floor, and building can be simply calculated, weighed for importance, trended, and reported.
