Spot faulty HVAC plant before costs your business in downtime and wasted energy with our FREE* BEMS energy health check service
Intech Controls’ BEMS Energy Health Check provides you with peace of mind and an opportunity to get a steer on energy saving opportunities for optimising operational expenditure. You will also benefit from improving the comfort and wellbeing of your organisation’s employees and customers.
Our expert BMS engineers will also be able to spot faulty BMS controls equipment and identify areas where control strategies could be altered or improved. This could save you potential losses both in terms of physical cost through utility bills, and system downtime.
Common problems we have detected for our clients via our BMS health check service are:
- M&E Plant running out of hours
- Poor plant sequencing, such as boiler dry cycling
- Inefficient control philosophies
- Excessive setpoints
- Combined heating and cooling
- Main plant vs terminal unit battles
- Sensor calibrations
In brief, Intech Controls will undertake a comprehensive summary investigation of your BEMS controls. We will provide you with an energy report outlining cost savings (where information is available) and recommend remedial and maintenance measures which may include upgrading hardware, changing software or controls training if required.
What happens during an energy audit?
An Intech Controls BMS engineer will visit your site for up to one day and investigate whether your sensors, control strategy, system set points. We will also ensure that your scheduling is optimised for building occupancy, weather compensation, correct plant sequencing and control, internal comfort and general suitability for purpose. We will also do a full back-up of your database and controller system, presented to you on an Intech memory stick – our little gift to you!
Terms and conditions apply. Some of the opportunities we identify may require further investigation, and any recommendations we make will be followed up by a no obligation quotation.
* Our BMS Health check fee costs £450. If we identify areas of saving and you accept our quote to provide a solution to this energy saving, we will refund the cost of the health check provided you choose services which cover the cost of the health check.

Energy improvement initiatives
System Efficiency is the key to reducing a buildings carbon footprint, and gaining those all important cost savings. Energy Efficiency is at the heart of what we do, and comes built in to any of our packages. Energy usage can be monitored using electricity meters, heat meters, water/gas meters etc. Intech are able to supply and install all of these solutions, and provide a suite of software to analyse the readings obtained effectively to provide useful information.
Remote energy management - 24/7 help desk facility - energy insights.
Our remote energy management bureau puts you in control 24/7. Avoid downtime, reduce business risk now. Intech Controls’ offers energy professionals the choice of training to make adjustments, or to book our qualified engineers to assist with a maximum waiting time of just four hours. Take control now. Call us on 01403 288195.
Using specially designed algorithms and software, we are able to transform a set of meter readings into meaningful data sets, graphics and dashboards. We can use this information to provide detailed analytics and historical comparisons, target areas of high consumption, and also generate efficiency related BMS alarms, which identify periods of energy usage that are high or abnormal.
Once the data has been collected, we are able to offer advanced services such as:
- Energy Monitoring & Targetting
- Stunning visual representation in graphical formats
- Energy Analysis & Alarms
- Database integration
- Web Services (SOAP / XML) Integration
- SMTP integration
- CSV Generation and scheduled emailing
- Interactive dashboard visualisations
Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS)
Intech Controls offers a complete bespoke design service, tailored to suit the needs of energy and sustainability professionals in all sectors.
We understand that each organisation is unique and each energy professional faces different objective and challenges. Therefore, before creating BMS system designs, we invest time ensuring that individual needs are fully understood.
We design to deliver efficiency across all aspects of a buildings’ operational demands, taking into account:
- operational effectiveness of the mechanical and electrical services
- enhanced occupier well-being, productivity levels and other occupier requirements
Often the information gathered by a BMS system is collected and stored but never used to its full potential. Intech transforms a list of figures and values into meaningful and easy-to-read insights for energy professionals to track changes and detect where systems may be being badly managed.
All dashboard solutions are bespoke, enabling live and on-demand information including instantaneous energy usage, consumption over a period of time, historic comparisons and a huge range of analytic tools in order to observe and report on the building efficiency. Our custom dashboard solutions can be installed into almost any BMS system and used to monitor energy usage, power consumption, or almost any data set.
Our energy management suite based on Niagara4, provides visually stunning graphs, meters and dials to create a fantastic user experience. The platform is a web-based system and is accessible from anywhere, using PC browsers, tablets or smartphone devices, allowing the user to monitor and manage energy consumption, with an exciting and advanced feature set, including:
- Energy Benchmarking graphs – weekly, monthly or yearly views to compare (for example) this week against last week or this week last year.
- Aggregation of metering data to compare energy profiles or peak demands for different zones, buildings or sites.
- Intelligent metering functions handling meter roll-over, and smoothing out of periods with missed readings.
- Visualisation and ranking of consumption between meters, zones, systems, buildings, sites etc.
- Smart visualisation and analysis of control loop / optimised start/stop performance, with notification of inefficiently performing control sequences
- Kiosk mode showing a rotating sequence of energy dashboard pages, ideal for use in a reception or customer area.

Integration to third party and legacy systems
Intech excels in maximising the capability of a BMS by integrating it with other types of equipment in a connected world. A modern building may have several independent systems such as chillers, electricity meters, UPS’, generators, Lifts or Lighting – none of which is natively associated with the BMS. Intech has the ability and expertise to carry out full integration with these systems to show detailed data and enable control and monitoring of these systems from within the inherent BMS system.
Trend 962 Trend 963
Due to our years of experience, our engineers are fully competent with the latest Trend Software, but also with obsolete or superceded software. This includes 945, 962, 963 and much more. We are still able to offer thorough and competent support for these ageing platforms, and are as enthusiastic about them as we are with the day they were released!
Trend IQL Controllers ( LON works)
Trend LON networks are a thing of the past, but our knowledge remains. Our engineers have the tools and skills to work on the Trend IQL range of controllers in order to offer support, modification and servicing in all aspects. We are able to provide ongoing maintenance if required, or provided detailed system analysis to suggest the correct route to a system upgrade – if that’s your thing!
Trend IQ1, 1Q2, 1Q3
The Trend family of controllers has grown and developed over the years, and we have grown and developed alongside it. Our engineers have the tools and skills to work on the more “vintage” ranges of Trend controllers in order to offer support, modification and servicing in all aspects. We are able to provide ongoing maintenance if required, or provided detailed system analysis to suggest the correct route to a system upgrade – if that’s your thing!
