When you own or operate a large commercial space or building, it’s easy for your energy costs to quickly spiral out of control. There are simply too many different systems that use large amounts of power, and too many different people have control over their operation.
While spending a certain amount on energy for heating, cooling and lighting is necessary, you would ideally like to keep down the total you spend on energy each month. That’s where an energy management system comes in handy. An energy management system can help regulate the amount of energy that’s used by the systems in your building and reduce overall operating costs while still maintaining a comfortable and productive environment.
If you’d like to learn more about having one of these energy management systems installed in your Champaign–Urbana area commercial building, call Lanz Heating & Cooling today. We’re always happy to answer any of your questions and will provide you with an excellent energy management system to keep your entire building running more efficiently.

What are Energy Management Systems?
Energy management systems, also sometimes referred to as building management systems, essentially monitor and control mechanical and electrical systems that operate within your building. These computer–based systems are responsible for regulating the operation of things like ventilation, lighting, security, indoor air quality, and heating and cooling systems.
The great thing about energy management systems is that they centralize control of all of these systems, thereby enabling you to reduce your energy consumption and regulate indoor conditions in all areas of the building from wherever you are.
Energy Management System Installation
The installation of an energy management system involves putting in both hardware and software. The size of the project and the time frame in which it will be completed depend on how many systems you want to link together and how those systems were initially installed. Ideally, you would put in a building management system during construction or when you install new heating, cooling, ventilation and safety systems. But it’s also possible to integrate one of these systems into a building well after initial installation of your other systems occurred.
Energy Management System Maintenance & Repair
Once your system is in place, it needs to remain properly configured and in good repair. An improperly configured building management system can actually do more harm than good by failing to monitor and regulate energy use properly.
In order to avoid this, it’s a good idea to have your energy management system inspected annually by one of our professional technicians. We’ll make sure that everything is calibrated properly and that all of the software is up to date and running as it should. This will serve to ensure that you’re continually saving as much as possible on energy costs.
In the event that something does unexpectedly go wrong with your system, however, you only need to give us a call and we’ll have someone out as quickly as possible to take a look and complete any necessary repairs. Our technicians are fully versed and up to date on all of the latest technology relating to energy management systems, so you can rest assured that they’ll get the job done right the first time.
