“Most multi-family buildings use a single outside sensor to control cycling of the fuel-energy system -- a method which is highly inaccurate, often resulting in the burning of excess fuel and, therefore, increased pollution.
“Vantage is implementing U.S. Energy’s Energy Management System (EMS) which uses strategically placed sensors throughout each property to reach the ideal comfort level for all residents without waste. Consequently, the properties achieve increased energy efficiency while reducing overall operating costs. “
Additionally, Rubler says, each Vantage building will be monitored with USE-Manager, which “provides constant online analysis of each facility’s fuel-energy system in order to identify weaknesses and potential problems, track usage and alert building management immediately regarding any issues that could impact residents.
