What happens when you think your building is running efficiently but the data says otherwise? One of PointGuard's clients expected to see a high performing building. Their building operations team was focused on energy effiency and sustainability; their building's Energy Star score was in the high 90s the prior year; and their buildings were newly commissioned. Yet...
When, they connected to the PointGuard Paltform, it was discovered their Energy Star Score calculations were actually in the 80s and that a rooftop unit was running 24/7 despite schedules and occupancy mode.
Throughout this project, and any client project, the PointGuard Platform uses the proven science of traditional commissioning along with intuitive visualizations and impactful reports to help deliver value. With science backed algorithms, we are able to bring the most critical and profitable issues to the forefront of a facility team's attention so that even as they are stretched thin in other areas, they are able to maintain efficient and high performing buildings.
The PointGuard platforms diagnoses these types of large energy wasting problems and more for facility teams in the first few months of service. However, the true benefit of software comes with better asset health and improved comfort. These are long term issues for facility teams, which PointGuard's KPIs and algorithms are tailored to address.
