Beaver Bank Elementary School

An eighties-era school in the Halifax Municipality of Nova Scotia

The Challenge

Ecopilot® was integrated with existing HVAC system in order to modernize the school, and reduce their energy consumption. Through analysis of data collected from Ecopilot we recognized a need for a change in the electric radiator running strategy.

The Results

Ecopilot® continuously estimates the property’s optimal energy operating mode by taking into account internal user loads, external weather impact and thermal storage capacity. The property owner has attained a good overview of the indoor climate through Ecopilot® Analysis and now has a more comfortable environment as well as reduced energy usage.
