The Situation

That’s where PointGuard came in.

By employing custom algorithms, providing specific recommendations for improvement and expert monitoring by the PointGuard team, the property on East Morehead was able to decrease its energy usage by 37 percent and improve comfort for the building’s tenants.

The Solution:

1065 East Morehead was successful because they completed 100 percent of the recommendations in the first year of service, resulting in excellent comfort for the following years.

PointGuard found and resolved several other critical items. These included identifying zones where primary air dampers were loose or stuck, thus not providing sufficient or providing excessive airflow; unusual indirect temperature settings that resulted in unhappy colleagues; and a design flaw where some exterior zones were not heated.

The Result:
