How real-time HVAC monitoring can improve your systems' environmental performance

Jared Oken, 14 February 2023

Real-time monitoring of industrial HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) systems is a crucial aspect of improving sustainability and environmental performance in facilities, buildings, factories, and industrial warehouses.

In this article, we will discuss why real-time monitoring is important and how it helps facilities to achieve their sustainability goals.

Why real-time HVAC monitoring is important to sustainability

Real-time HVAC monitoring helps facilities to get real-time insights into their HVAC systems, which can be used to improve energy efficiency and sustainability, as well as providing you with the ability to detect and fix issues before they become significant problems.

How real-time HVAC monitoring helps improve sustainability

  1. Real-time HVAC monitoring of HVAC systems helps facilities to improve energy efficiency by identifying areas where energy consumption is above usual levels. For example, if a facility is using more energy than it should be, real-time monitoring can help identify the source of the problem and provide recommendations on how your employees (or AI) can stop it from occurring immediately.
  2. Real-time HVAC monitoring also helps facilities to reduce their carbon footprint by better aligning HVAC utilisation with use and production patterns. Through analysing usage patterns over time, coupling it with other business data (such as production schedules and reporting) and third party data sources (such as weather and environmental conditions), you can use predictive analytics and machine learning to find more optimal HVAC schedules and configurations.
  3. Real-time HVAC monitoring helps to improve sustainability is by helping facilities to improve indoor air quality. By monitoring the performance of HVAC systems in real-time, facilities can identify any issues with indoor air quality and take corrective actions before they cause other assets to perform poorly or spoil products, thereby incur reproduction costs and associated resource use/greenhouse gas (GHG) output.
  4. Real-time HVAC monitoring of HVAC assets can also prevent asset and machinery failure. Not only can this be hazardous, costly and increase site downtime, but refrigerant leaks can impact the surrounding environment and cause harm to flora and fauna, particularly if occurring in remote areas vs. industrial sites.
  5. Real-time HVAC monitoring provides accuracy in reporting. By having a better view of environmental performance metrics and the impact of HVAC on overall and supply chain emissions, businesses can better plan for future needs and uncover optimal performing assets, guiding future purchasing decisions and cross-business, multi-site configurations.

In conclusion, real-time HVAC monitoring of industrial HVAC systems has a crucial role in improving sustainability and environmental performance in facilities, buildings, factories, and industrial warehouses. By providing real-time insights into HVAC system performance, facilities can identify areas where they can improve energy efficiency, reduce their carbon footprint, and improve indoor air quality.
