Our Solution | The Benefits of Swarm Logic® HVAC Software
Looking for the best way to save energy with your commercial building’s HVAC system? Check out these impressive advantages that Encycle delivers to C&I customers.
If you are looking for a simpler, streamlined approach that will yield almost instantaneous HVAC energy savings with little or no equipment purchase – and no need for additional personnel – consider the benefits of Encycle’s Swarm Logic® solution.
With Swarm Logic, typical Encycle customers save between 10% to 20% on HVAC electric spend, consumption, and demand demonstrated by numerous case studies. These same customers become cash-flow positive almost immediately, creating an unprecedented return on fees without any downsides or risk. To break it down further, our typical customer realizes six- or seven-figure net savings per year with no incremental capital.
With public sustainability interest and programs expanding, Swarm Logic is helping customers achieve specific energy-based goals and reduce their carbon footprint by managing consumption and demand. We understand the discipline required to meet sustainability initiatives such as the Department of Energy Better Building Challenge, CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project), ENERGY STAR, RE100, GRESB, and GRI.
☑ Supports demand response programs
For companies participating in demand response programs, Swarm Logic automatically manages peak demand and load scheduling to ensure established agreements or contracts are met without worry or hassle.
☑ Quick and easy to deploy
Little or no capital expenditure for equipment is needed in most cases. All that is required is connectivity between the facility’s building controls (BAS, connected thermostats, or IoT platform) and Swarm Logic’s software using a cloud-based application programming interface (API). With Swarm IoT™, there’s no need for an extensive site study, no disruption to business, and virtually no risk.
☑ Highly intuitive and responsive
Swarm Logic is highly responsive, continuously fine-tuning the operation of a building’s RTUs as new data are received that reflect fluctuations in cooling requirements driven by a number of variables such as indoor zone temperature and building occupancy. Indoor comfort is never compromised, and critical building requirements are consistently met.
☑ Extends the life of HVAC equipment
Swarm Logic’s proprietary and adaptive algorithm reduces unnecessary rooftop unit (RTU) operation, which improves efficiency and extends service life, helping to preserve your RTU equipment investments. In addition, our Swarm Portal reporting platform provides visibility into RTU operation down to the 15-minute interval, enabling our customers to allocate precious HVAC repair and replacement budgets toward those RTUs where the greatest benefit can be gained.
☑ Minimizes equipment repair and replacement costs
Swarm Logic continually monitors each building site and can help identify faulty or underperforming equipment. This allows you to schedule HVAC preventive maintenance and repair before it becomes a greater cost and/or creates a comfort problem.
☑ Assurance of the latest proprietary technology
Encycle’s proprietary HVAC algorithms and advanced methodologies mean customers subscribing to Swarm Logic always have next-generation control and reporting capabilities, allowing them to extend the useful life cycle of the investment made in building controls by integrating advanced control functionality.
☑ Automated monitoring 24/7/365
Swarm Logic operates invisibly and automatically in the background, so there’s no additional personnel overhead needed to maintain, monitor, or adjust Swarm Logic performance. Our cloud-based software continually monitors the HVAC systems of all your buildings, providing a synchronized and enterprise-level approach to HVAC-related energy savings.
☑ Advanced analytics and reporting
Supporting the core of Swarm Logic is a robust set of analytics tools and reports, giving you transparent feedback with real insights and visibility into your building and RTU operations. You can always see how each HVAC unit is performing with real-time health checks, so you can pinpoint and resolve trouble proactively before it becomes an emergency.
☑ Scalable for any number of facilities
Swarm Logic serves a broad range of customers across multiple industries with a wide range of energy profiles. Our Swarm Technology™ works with buildings and packaged HVAC units of any age located in all climate zones in North America. A long and growing number of Fortune 500 enterprises are adopting Encycle’s impressive technology to add another stream of value to their bottom lines.
