Fine Tuning your BAS

Tue, 1/1/2030 - 1:00pm - 1:00pm

Webinar on Demand

Recorded on 5/26/2021 as part of the Sustainable Building Maintenance Series

This course is the THIRD in a four-part Sustainable Building Maintenance Series.

Attendees are not required to have participated in previous sessions. 

This course will provide prescriptive best practices for maintaining good operations, and an overview of the re-tuning process using building automation system (BAS) trend data.  Attendees will learn how to look for and optimize the control strategy for many of the common energy-saving opportunities such as occupancy scheduling, temperature, and static pressure control, and economizer function.   

Intended Audience 

This course is ideal for onsite O&M staff responsible for day-to-day building operation; O&M staff management looking to integrate energy efficiency into their O&M procedures; and offsite contractors (retro-commissioning agents or control vendors) hired to improve a building's energy efficiency. 


Prerequisite Knowledge 

Basic understanding of commercial building systems (e.g. air handling units, VAV boxes, boilers, chillers) and familiarity with basic functions of building automation systems.

Course Overview

This training will provide an overview of the re-tuning process using BAS data. Actionable guidance on how to look for and optimize the control strategy of each of the following re-tuning measures: 

  • Occupancy Scheduling  

  • Discharge-Air Temperature Control  

  • Discharge- Air Static Pressure Control  

  • Air-Handling Unit Heating and Cooling  

  • Air- Handling Unit Outside/Fresh Air makeup  

  • Air-Handling Unit Economizer Operation  

  • Zone Conditioning  

  • Central Plant Optimization  


Learning Objectives 

  • Be able to list five low/no-cost prescriptive O&M measures that may apply to your building 

  • Be able to describe the basics of the re-tuning process, and some of the benefits 

  • List at least three examples of poor operations that can be found through the re-tuning process
