Successful nonprofits are constantly looking for ways to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Heating and cooling costs can quickly add up, and statistics show 20-30% of energy is wasted on empty or unused spaces. Not only is waste an issue, but it’s hard to maintain comfortable, consistent temperatures in older buildings, which often have inefficient windows and poor insulation.
HiberSense, a 2017 UpPrize Winner, offers a Connected Climate Control system that provides residential and commercial buildings owners, renters and facility managers with better insight and control over occupant comfort and energy efficiency. HiberSense works with your HVAC system to install electronically-controlled vents that can be retrofitted. Vents are controlled through room-by-room thermostats to ensure that air is only going to rooms that need it. Temperature data is automatically collected, and the user can access the information to customize temperature needs through a user-friendly app. The system is designed to pay for itself within two years, and typically saves users 30-40% on heating and cooling costs.
This session will focus on a variety of energy topics and will provide an overview of:
At the session we will also be announcing an upcoming cohort with HiberSense. The cohort will include a yearlong subscription to HiberSense services and ongoing education and technical assistance with your new system. For more information about HiberSense, check out their website.
