New Technology Improves Maintenance Services, Conserves Energy
The Energy Conservation/Utility Management department is responsible for controlling, monitoring, and maintaining all EMS systems throughout the District.
The District’s EMS systems are designed to control both Air-Conditioning and Outdoor Lighting equipment. These systems also monitor for security intrusion alarms during non-operating hours.
Monitoring of EMS systems is done remotely either by the Energy Conservation/Utility Management department or the District’s Special Investigative Unit department where 24/7 security monitoring is done.
Through remote access of these EMS systems, the District has the ability to maintain, diagnose and correct issues relating to classroom temperature settings. In addition, these EMS systems also provide the District with an effective way to manage electrical usage.
Electrical usage can be controlled through the combination of refining air-conditioning schedules, maintaining proper classroom space temperatures settings, and limiting additional A/C runtime on weekends and holidays. To help ensure proper automatic control and functionality of these systems is a staff of EMS Technicians.
Our staff of EMS Technicians has a diverse background in Heating Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) controls, building automation controls, and security alarm system controls. These EMS Technicians, along with District maintenance and custodial staff, help to ensure proper functionality of A/C, Security, and Outdoor Lighting equipment.
