Energy Management Systems
According to a recent Energy Star report, the cost of energy for America’s 47,000 hotels averages $2,196 per available room each year. As the cost of energy continues to increase, energy efficiency projects can provide an immediate and significant reduction in energy expenses.
With EcoSmart, Telkonet can reduce equipment runtime in unoccupied rooms by 20-45% while maintaining guest comfort, making the solution uniquely suited for energy management projects in the hospitality market.
Any successful hotelier must focus on achieving the critical balance between guest comfort and operating margins–and on maintaining this balance in the long-term. Telkonet’s patented Recovery Time technology allows EcoSmart to maximize energy savings without compromising guest comfort. EcoSmart systems control the temperature within the room as well as the amount of time it takes the HVAC unit to bring that room back to the desired setpoint.
Recovery Time allows the temperature in an unoccupied room to drift far enough to harvest energy savings while still being able to return to the occupant’s setpoint within the property-defined recovery period. This dynamic technology sets Telkonet apart from fixed setback energy management systems, where the setback temperature is a fixed temperature or a fixed deviation.
EcoCentral Virtual Engineer (VE) communicates with Telkonet’s EcoSmart intelligent wireless thermostats, occupancy sensors, door and window contacts, outlets and light switches. It forms a robust, secure wireless mesh network that communicates information between rooms, floors, and buildings.
