WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF NOT UPGRADING YOUR LEGACY BAS?

May 20, 2023

Building Automation Systems (BAS) are essential for managing the complex operation sof commercial, institutional, residential, and industrial buildings. They control everything from HVAC and lighting to security and energy management. But as technology changes, so do BAS systems – that’s why the Egan Company team has your back on all things upgrades. 

If you have a legacy BAS system, it’s important to consider upgrading to a newer system. A modern BAS system can help you save energy, improve comfort, increase security, and reduce downtime. It can also help you meet current regulations and avoid compliance issues.

Here are some of the benefits of upgrading your outdated BAS:

  • Increased energy efficiency: a modern BAS system can help you save energy by automatically adjusting the temperature and humidity levels in your building based on occupancy and weather conditions. This can lead to significant cost savings on your energy bills.
  • Improved comfort: a modern BAS system can help you maintain comfortable temperatures and humidity levels in your building, even when the weather outside is extreme. This can lead to increased employee satisfaction and productivity.
  • Enhanced security: a modern BAS system can help you improve the security of your building by monitoring access points, detecting unauthorized activity, and controlling access to sensitive areas. This can help you protect your people, property, and data from unauthorized access.
  • Reduced downtime: a modern BAS system is more reliable and less likely to experience downtime than an outdated system. This can help you avoid disruptions to your operations and inconvenience to your tenants or customers.
  • Compliance with regulations: a modern BAS system can help you comply with current regulations, such as those governing energy efficiency and security. This can help you avoid fines or other penalties.

If you’re considering upgrading your outdated BAS, be sure to work with a qualified BAS integrator that can help you choose the right system for your needs and budget as well as complete the  installation and commissioning process.
