Building Automation Systems, also called DDC or Direct Digital Control systems are a concert of wiring, devices and computers used to turn things off, on or regulate them somewhere in between in order to achieve the proper balance you want between maximum comfort and maximum energy savings.
Mike Weber our CEO, Founder and still a very active part of our company began engineering and installing control systems in the late 1970s. One of his earliest successes was at the Dodge City Medical Center where he amazed the management by cutting their gas bills by 40% without sacrificing comfort.
In the early 1990s Weber Refrigeration engineered and installed DDC systems in several Southwest Kansas Schools including Lakin, Scott City, Ulysses, Dodge City, Minneola and Garden City. These systems were leased to the districts with a guarantee that the energy savings would pay the lease payment. Most of the lease terms were 3 years and every one of them far exceeded the guarantee.

Please call and let us tell you what some of our Smart Home Thermostats can do for you.
Controls are a concert of wiring, devices and programming that are used to turn things off, on or regulate them somewhere in between. Of course all of the systems we sell have their own built in controls, but here we will focus on things we to put you in control or give you an added degree of safety or security many systems or installations do not have.
We use a broad range of many different types and brands of thermostats that offer many different features such as:
While some DIYers simply purchase these at Home Depot, Amazon or wherever, great care must be taken to choose the proper thermostat for your system and then program the system to match your system. We have been on many many service calls where the customer wrongly installed or had their burglar alarm company wrongly install one of these. In some cases, in addition to costing them unneeded discomfort and our service call fee, permanent damage was done to the system.
Supermarket Automation Systems, also called DDC or Direct Digital Control systems are a concert of wiring, devices and computers used to turn things off, on or regulate them somewhere in between in order to achieve the proper balance you want between maximum comfort and maximum energy savings.
We have been programming, installing and servicing computerized control systems on Single Zone systems and Rack Refrigeration systems since the mid 1980s. Some of our customers take full advantage of all of the features available and some only utilize a few.

First National Bank
We just finished calculating the results of a Re-Control Job at First National Bank. We cut their gas bill by 67.3 % and cut their entire electric bill by 34.2%. This is asavings of over $20,000.00 per year.
Energy savings was actually a secondary objective on this job. The primary objective was to improve comfort. The old control system would allow the temperature to swing 8 degrees and many people would run electric heaters at their desks. We now hold each room to within 1/2 degree of set point.
Gray County Courthouse
This building had complete remodel less than 10 years ago. The remodel included all new HVAC equipment, Boilers, and a Building Automation System. This B.A.S. was not programmed with energy savings as even a remote objective. We changed out the B.A.S. and programmed it for optimum comfort and optimum energy savings.
Update: We just got the Energy Savings results on this job. 25.1% savings on total electric bill and 42% savings on natural gas bill.
