Abundant Power Group has introduced a new service for facility managers and building owners — The Comfort Test. This test is a simple, quick, and impactful way for building management teams to use analytics to gain insight into typical chronic building issues and improve building comfort. The test provides a report on the comfort performance of a buildings’ mechanical systems, on a zone by zone level. Following a four-step process, the report can be generated in 30 days or less. The Comfort Test will provide building portfolio owners a foundation for building performance improvements and increased ROI for all stakeholders.
“The Comfort Test results are going to surprise many building management teams,” said Shannon Smith, CEO of Abundant Power. “But the good news is that analytics provides a clear path on how to address issues without sacrificing on operating costs.”
After completing a short, digital questionnaire, Abundant Power will create a simple, secure connection to a building’s BMS, then analyze the building’s data for the past 30 days. Upon completion, facility managers will receive their Comfort Test scores with associated report. The report breaks down zone comfort across the building, predictive comfort trends as it relates to weather, and which zones are least comfortable.
Abundant Power has long offered the Comfort Score as part of its Performance Analytics, with real-time reporting on occupant comfort, based on desired and actual temperatures, helping managers reduce complaints. Users of The Comfort Test can sign up for Performance Analytics with a reduced set up fee, and take advantage of the full suite of services, including the Comfort Score.
Located in Charlotte, NC, Abundant Power offers comprehensive performance and energy analytics, monitoring, and reporting and offer recommendations to commercial real estate owners and managers on how to improve overall building performance, asset health, occupant comfort, and energy efficiency.
