Building Automation Systems & Controls

Since 1946, Cox-Powell has developed energy management systems and mechanical maintenance solutions for the non-residential market. Due to constant changes in our industry, staying up to date and providing the most energy-efficient tools for our customers is our priority.

Evidently, as a property management company or building owner, you’ve invested in building automation, metering, and systems to control your building. Managing your building operations with Building Automation System alarms, comfort calls, and metering dashboards can inform you a problem exists. However, did you know there are ways to be proactive in managing and monitoring your electro-mechanical components and HVAC equipment?

Our partnered Key2Act Connect® monitoring system can be valuable to any maintenance agreement. You make smart decisions with timely and accurate reporting of faulty or potential faulty components. However, mechanical equipment runs at peak performance when first commissioned. As a result, performance begins to decline over time, resulting in higher energy costs and more costly repairs.

As a result, Connect® continuously gathers and analyzes equipment data so that you can monitor building equipment in real time. This allows continuous commissioning of the buildings and the assets you manage.

Fortunately, as equipment health deteriorates, the insights delivered by Connect® enable you to take immediate action, bringing performance up to peak performance.

Variable Frequency Drives

Variable Frequency Drives, also known as VFD, control the frequency or speed at which motors operate, resulting in energy savings. Energy cost savings with variable torque can be significant, often paying for the cost of a VFD within a matter of months. As a matter of fact, it is estimated that drive technology will be adopted in as many as 30-40% of all newly installed motors.

We Install Variable Frequency Drives In…
• Building Exhaust Fans
• Make-up Air Fans
• HVAC Return Air Fans
Cooling Tower Fans
• HVAC Supply Air Fans
• Chilled & Condenser Water Pumps

Air-Side Economizers

Air-side economizers can save energy in buildings by using cool outside air to cool the indoor space. When the outside air’s enthalpy is less than the enthalpy of the re-circulated air, conditioning the outside air is more energy efficient than conditioning the re-circulated is.

Additionally, air-side economizers can reduce HVAC energy costs in cold and temperate climates while improving indoor air quality.
