Popular features in this module

SOFTWARE-BASED METERING (SOFT METERS)

Envizi’s soft meter capability allows you to monitor and analyze equipment-level energy data without costly physical sub-metering. The system derives energy demand profiles based on nameplate ratings and real-time BMS data for all air and water-side equipment.

PRE-BUILT RULES FOR AUTOMATED FAULT DETECTION & DIAGNOSTICS

Envizi is pre-configured to automatically detect and diagnose equipment faults and optimization opportunities based on best practice HVAC control strategies. Easily identify fault causes and timing and understand cost savings potential to support prioritization.

ISSUE TRACKING & WORKFLOWS

Track and manage all HVAC faults and optimization opportunities in easy-to-use Kanban-style Issue Boards. Integrated workflow tools and alert charts enable fast and efficient root cause analysis and onsite remediation.

HVAC ASSET PERFORMANCE METRICS DASHBOARD

Review your HVAC performance in a single, powerful dashboard that summarize key monthly metrics including energy consumption, maximum demand, run hours and start stops for every major piece of HVAC equipment in your building.

Access detailed insights to identify & address HVAC equipment faults

With HVAC systems accounting for a large amount of an organization’s total energy consumption and resultant emissions, having a robust reporting engine that identifies HVAC inefficiencies alongside financial returns is crucial to minimizing your organization’s overall operating costs and delivering decarbonization outcomes.

Envizi’s HVAC Fault Detection software applies advanced data analytics to existing Building Management System (BMS) data to detect and diagnose faults and inefficiencies faster and more effectively than traditional, routine maintenance – making it a highly scalable solution from single site analysis through to portfolio-wide management.

Our fault detection software applies unique Software Metering and highly intelligent, out-of-the-box, analytical rules to deliver unparalleled insights so you can proactively respond to faults, comfort issues and improve occupant satisfaction.

Minimize the risk of major breakdowns and unplanned maintenance costs for your organization with Envizi, while also identifying new opportunities to optimize performance, improve efficiency and reduce emissions by leveraging industry best practice, technology, and innovation.

REDUCE HVAC ENERGY COSTS

Minimize energy waste by pinpointing the root cause of faults and inefficiencies in HVAC systems, enabling faster resolution. Identify new energy optimization opportunities to harness additional cost savings.

DRIVE DOWN OVERALL EMISSIONS

Deliver emissions reduction through more efficient operation of HVAC equipment.

ENHANCE VISIBILITY WITH SOFTWARE-BASED METERING

Better understand when, where and how energy is being used in your building at an equipment level without the deployment of costly physical metering.

INCREASE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY

Use robust analytics to minimize the time it would normally take to investigate and diagnose faults, allowing contractors to focus on what matters in the field.

MAXIMIZE ASSET VALUE

Early detection of equipment faults and optimization opportunities can significantly reduce wear and tear on costly assets and prolong equipment life.

Product suitability

Commercial offices, college and university campuses, hospital campuses, large retail complexes and other large infrastructure buildings such as airports and casinos.

Buildings with centralized HVAC systems, relatively modern Building Management Systems (BMS) and reasonably large floor areas (>60k sq. ft/6,000m2).
