Commercial Building Automation Systems


    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.   


Weber Refrigeration's History in Building Automation & DDC

    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.

HVAC Residential Controlls Thermostat

Please call and let us tell you what some of our Smart Home Thermostats can do for you.

Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Controls

Residential HVAC Controls


    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.


Thermostats

    We use a broad range of many different types and brands of thermostats that offer many different features such as:


Wi-Fi Thermostats:  These are becoming very popular for some very good reasons.   Some like them because they can adjust their thermostat from their Smart Phone from bed or their easy chair or anywhere in the world.    Some like them because they can be programmed to send a text and or E-Mail if something malfunctions.

    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.   


Zoning Thermostats:  Allow for a separate thermostat in each room, much the way most newer cars have. (read more)


2 Stage thermostats: Allow certain Two Stage Furnaces and Air Conditioners to kick into high speed when you need it and down into energy saving low speed when you need less. 


Fully Communicating Systems: Many of our modern equipment such as Condensing Furnaces, Geothermal, Heat Pumps, Ductless Splits and  Highest Effeciency Air Conditioners have integrated control systems that will alert you via text or E-Mail whenever anything begins to get out of optimal parameters.  Often times this can save on costly repairs as well as reducing energy costs.

Supermarket Automation Systems


    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.   


Weber Refrigeration's History in Supermarket Automation & DDC

    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.

Most Recent Results

 

First National Bank

  11-02-2018 

     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


02-15-2018   

    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.  


10-30-2018 

     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.
