DDC Controls for Pneumatic HVAC Systems

Serving Kansas City, MO and St. Joseph, Lawrence & Topeka, KS

Do you own a business or manage a facility in the Kansas City area? One of your goals is probably to increase building efficiency and save money over the long term. If so, you may be frustrated with your current under-performing pneumatic HVAC system. Did you know you can improve building performance without entirely reworking your system?

At Lippert Mechanical Service Corporation, we have experience installing wireless direct digital controls (DDC) into existing pneumatic systems. This is the key to optimizing control of your equipment to decrease the overall cost of running the unit while still protecting the investment you made in your existing HVAC system.

Want to learn more about adding DDC to your current pneumatic control system? If so, please contact Lippert Mechanical to schedule an appointment to meet with our expert team.

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 while can cause fluctuations in reading the current temperature.

Adding DDC to a pneumatic HVAC system gives you precise air-flow 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.
