What Is a DDC System?
A pneumatic HVAC system with DDC controls is one of the best ways to save money on energy bills and keep an entire, large building comfortable. Warehouses and other large commercial buildings tend to have many different rooms, and each room has to be a different temperature to keep the place running. That is where the DDC control system comes in! The DDC system allows one or a few people to monitor and adjust the HVAC settings for different rooms to keep temperatures optimal. It can be done from a computer or even a phone— depending on the system you have in place.
Why Direct Digital Control Matters for Your 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 in reading the current temperature.
Adding DDC to a pneumatic HVAC system gives you precise airflow measurements to direct air exactly where it’s needed. Direct digital controls provide instructions to the system regarding air pressure, temperature, and humidity to then use resources in a targeted way. Studies have shown that adding a DDC system leads to, on average, 15% greater financial and energy savings. Utility rebates may also be available to increase your savings. By directing air only to areas that need an increase in temperature—not indiscriminately system-wide—there will be better energy efficiency, happier employees or tenants, and savings in utilities.
