Benefits


Stellar helps make buildings work for the people who depend on them, through:

  • Enhanced Energy Efficiency
  • Improved Occupant Comfort and Productivity
  • Lower Operations and Maintenance Costs

Enhanced Energy Efficiency

According to the Department of Energy, buildings account for 40% of U.S. energy use and 30% of the energy used per year is wasted. With our expertise and assistance, you will save money on electrical usage, electrical demand, and utility bills. Your enterprise will benefit from increased performance and reduced energy costs. The Metropolitan Energy Policy Commission (Minneapolis/St. Paul) estimates a BAS can help save $0.20 to $0.40 per square foot in utility costs.

Stellar is an industry leader in creating effective energy management solutions. We work with utilities, engineers, and end-users to return tangible energy savings from your building automation system.

Improved Occupant Comfort and Productivity

It is well documented through numerous studies that indoor environmental quality (IEQ) has a direct effect on productivity of occupants. IEQ refers to a combination of temperature, humidity, air movement, air quality (CO2), lighting, and computer screen glare. It has been estimated that the costs of poor IEQ can be significantly higher than building heating and cooling costs (Seppånen, Proceedings of Indoor Air, 1999).

Our smart building solutions – and by extension, smart spaces – help building owners optimize this often-ignored element of building automation systems.

Lower Operations and Maintenance Costs

Depending on your needs, we can design a completely new system or upgrade your building’s existing legacy system to extend its life without huge capital expenses. We are experts at integrating proprietary systems into an open web-based graphical user interface. Additionally, when you go with Stellar Building Technologies for building automation, lighting, and VFDs, you will only have to contact one company to identify and resolve operational issues.

Stellar can provide you with an optimal system architecture and interface, making your building easier to manage and inexpensive to maintain. We also offer cloud-based Backup as a Service (BaaS) ensuring that in the event of device or data failure you have a reliable backup available to get up and running with minimal downtime.
