Pneumatic & DDC Controls in Chicago, IL
Improving Your Pneumatic HVAC System with DDC
As a Chicago area business owner or facilities manager, you’re likely interested in improving the efficiency of your building to help save money over time. Did you know that you can improve the amount of control you have over your building’s pneumatic HVAC system—and therefore how efficient it is—by adding direct digital controls (DDC)?
Why DDC Matters for Your Chicago Business
Pneumatic systems use air as the control for HVAC systems. Because pneumatic systems compress the air and then send it through piping to the area being heated or cooled, there are many ways to optimize your system to perform at its best. Although pneumatic systems are effective, they rely on independent indicators from thermostat sensors which can cause fluctuations temperature readings.
DDC controls provide instructions to the system regarding air pressure, temperature, and humidity to then use resources in a targeted way. Adding DDC to a pneumatic HVAC system gives you precise air-flow measurements to direct air exactly where it’s needed. By directing air only to areas that need an increase in temperature—not indiscriminately system-wide—you’ll likely experience better energy efficiency, happier employees or tenants, and savings on monthly utility bills.
