Building Automation Systems & Controls
Since 1924, Krauss Company energy management systems and mechanical maintenance solutions for the non-residential market. Due to constant changes in our industry, staying up to date and providing the most energy efficient tools for our customers is our priority.
As a property management company or building owner, you’ve made investments in building automation, metering and systems to control your building. You’re managing your building operations with Building Automation System (BAS) alarms, comfort calls and metering dashboards that can inform you that a problem may exist. However did you know there are ways to be pro-active in the management and monitoring of your electro-mechanical components and HVAC equipment?
In a world of being proactive, our partnered Key2Act Connect® monitoring system can be a valuable addition to any maintenance agreement with timely and accurate reporting of faulty, or potential faulty components. Mechanical equipment runs at peak performance when it’s first commissioned, but over time performance begins to decline, resulting in higher energy costs and more costly repairs. Connect® continuously gathers and analyzes equipment data, which means building equipment can be monitored on a real-time basis. That allows continuous commissioning of the buildings and the assets you manage. As equipment health begins to deteriorate, the insights delivered by Connect® allow you to take immediate action to bring performance back up to peak.
Variable Frequency Drives
Variable Frequency Drives, also known as VFD, control the frequency or speed at which motors operate, resulting in energy savings. It has been proven that energy cost savings with variable torque can be significant, often paying for the cost of a VFD within a matter of months. It is estimated that drive technology is adopted in as many as 30-40% of all newly installed motors.
We Install Variable Frequency Drives In…
• Building Exhaust Fans
• Make-up Air Fans
• HVAC Return Air Fans
• Cooling Tower Fans
• HVAC Supply Air Fans
• Chilled & Condenser Water Pumps

Air-side economizers can save energy in buildings by using cool outside air as a means of cooling the indoor space. When the enthalpy of the outside air is less than the enthalpy of the re-circulated air, conditioning the outside air is more energy efficient then conditioning recirculated are.
Air-side economizers can reduce HVAC energy costs in cold and temperate climates while also improving indoor air quality.
