Why Install a DDC Building Control System?

Save money with an automated building control and energy management system from ASI. An ASI Building Control System (BCS) not only provides full control of your facility climate, lighting and other systems, with secure web access to your control system, it can also save you money in more ways than one.

You can save on electricity costs by managing your consumption during occupied and non-occupied periods, adding an economizer mode, adjusting setpoints to suit space usage, and more.

You can also save on equipment maintenance and replacement costs by having the BCS optimize start times, perform rotations amongst your devices, send you email reminders when a piece of equipment reaches a specified amount of run time, and more.
