Intelligent HVAC Monitoring & Control Reduces Running Time by c.68% and Generates an Annual Saving of c.£1.8million

HVAC Energy Consumption

A retailer with over 800 outlets and an average store footprint of over 5,500 sq ft, wanted to address their use of HVAC in-store. They believed staff behaviours and a lack of centralised visibility was causing unnecessary energy costs and reducing the lifespan of the HVAC systems.
Having already successfully been installed on their refrigeration estate, LoweConex was challenged with addressing these problems for the HVAC systems. Due to the technical infrastructure of the LoweConex data sphere, both the HVAC and the refrigeration can be viewed, analysed and remotely controlled using the same LoweConex platform.

The Solution

The team at LoweConex installed one wireless device on the HVAC system control panel, giving the LoweConex data sphere visibility of the live running data and two- way control over all 5 HVAC units.

Once installed the LoweConex device started transmitting data directly to the cloud, giving the team control to deploy the energy consumption countermeasures outlined below.
