Good controls are essential for the safe and efficient operation of a modern building. A control system must not only keep the inside of a building comfortable for the occupants, it must also keep the HVAC plant operating efficiently, and be capable of two-way communication with personnel charged with its operation. The complexity of systems varies, but whatever the size of the structure, good controls maximise energy conservation and reduce harmful emissions.
