Benefits


The purpose of Testing, Adjusting, and Balancing (TAB) is to verify that an HVAC system is providing the lowest energy cost possible, while maintaining optimal comfort to a facility's occupants. The C&C Group targets these important demands, supports your facilities staff, helps control your operational costs and improves indoor air quality.

To improve occupant comfort, today's HVAC systems are engineered with multiple individually controlled temperature zones. Variable speed fans, pumps, and zone control provide the precise amount of heating and cooling system capacity, reducing a facility's overall energy consumption. Indoor air quality codes are increasingly restrictive, and at the same time building envelopes are much tighter. This combination of changing airflow rates and requirements for fresh air increase the demand for fine tuning your HVAC system's operation. The C&C Group's TAB services can help you meet these important demands, support your facility's staff and control your operational costs.

TAB Benefits:

  • Reduce occupancy complaints
  • Reduce energy and demand costs
  • Improve indoor air quality
  • Increase tenant satisfaction
  • Reduce staff time spent on emergency calls

Commissioning

 

The ASHRAE Guideline defines the commissioning process as "a quality-oriented process for achieving, verifying, and documenting that the performance of facilities, systems, and assemblies meets defined objectives and criteria".
Commissioning of your new building's systems, or Retro-commissioning existing systems, is one of the most important factors when trying to insure equipment longevity, energy efficiency, occupancy comfort and operational cost control in your facility. The C&C Group will help you target your commissioning goals for your new or existing facility.

New Construction Commissioning Goals:

Provide documented confirmation that a facility fulfills the functional and performance requirements of the building owner, occupants, and operators.

  • Systems function
  • Systems performance
  • Systems maintainability

Verify and document compliance criteria during:

  • Design phase
  • Construction phase
  • Systems start-up
  • Initial period of operation

Successful Process
A successful commissioning process ensures that all building systems perform interactively according to the contract documents, the owner’s objectives, and operational needs.

Existing Systems Retro-Commissioning Goals:

  • Restore equipment to its proper operational state
  • Reduce complaints
  • Reduce energy and demand costs
  • Increase equipment life
  • Improve indoor air quality
  • Increase tenant satisfaction
  • Improve facility operation and maintenance
  • Reduce staff time spent on emergency calls
