CONTROLS & BUILDING AUTOMATION
CONTROLS CAN HELP BUILDING OWNERS AND FACILITY MANAGERS MONITOR AND REGULATE ENERGY USAGE, HELPING TO REDUCE ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND COSTS.
IN THE DARK about YOUR EQUIPMENT PERFORMANCE?
Unexpected breakdowns result in time-consuming and expensive downtime costs. Feeling like you don’t have accurate data can result in challenging decision-making.
GET DATA TO ASSIST WITH BUILDING STRATEGIES
Controls and Building Automation Systems (BAS) continuously gather and analyze equipment data so that you can monitor building equipment in real time.
Managing your building operations with alarms, comfort calls, and metering dashboards can inform you a problem exists.
VARIABLE FREQUENCY DRIVES
Variable Frequency Drives control the frequency or speed at which motors operate, resulting in energy savings.
We install Variable Frequency Drives in:
• Building Exhaust Fans
• Make-up Air Fans
• HVAC Return Air Fans
• Cooling Tower Fans
• HVAC Supply Air Fans
• Chilled & Condenser Water Pumps
Air-side economizers can save energy in buildings by using cool outside air to cool the indoor space.
When the outside air’s enthalpy is less than the enthalpy of the re-circulated air, conditioning the outside air is more energy efficient than conditioning the re-circulated is.
“Cox-Powell treats every project with the careful attention that the end user would hope for. We appreciate the many cost saving ideas that you have offered. An owner or general contractor would be lucky to have you for a partner on any electrical project large or small.”

KITCHEN EXHAUST SYSTEM
Installed electrical service for supply and exhaust fans and all controls for the new kitchen exhaust system. Controls included motor starters, fire suppression, fire alarm, and shunt trip breakers.
DEHUMIDIFICATION & TEMPERATURE CONTROLs MAKE UP AIR UNIT
Designed and installed a specialty makeup air dehumidification and temperature control unit in a laboratory to resolve humidity and temperature problems. The project included all ductwork, controls, line voltage, and electrical work.
Controls required + or – 2 set points. Specialty built-in “air conditioning energy recovery unit” will dehumidify and air condition or heat simultaneously.
Controls & BAS FAQ’S
What if I have multiple proprietary BAS throughout one facility?
Many building owners have a building automation system in place but run into issues when multiple systems need help communicating. We can alleviate the need for communication between your BAS with JACE by Honeywell.
JACE allows the connection of numerous and diverse devices and sub-systems so you can have user freedom with your choice of contractors.
What does BAS maintenance look like?
A poorly maintained and monitored BAS can lead to poor system security, limited analytics, and poor tenant comfort.
Preventive maintenance can vary depending on the specific BAS and the manufacturer’s recommendations, but typical tasks may include the following:
- Inspecting sensors
- Checking electrical connections
- Calibrating control devices
- Testing backup power systems
- Software and licensing updates
Cutting egde partnership
Our partnership with Honeywell Controls and their open protocol platform allows multiple contractors to gain access, service, and installation, giving building owners flexibility when choosing a control contractor.
