Keeping fuel costs to a minimum across an entire portfolio of buildings while maintaining tenant comfort was no easy task for Mr. Charles Reid, Director Of Operations and Maintenance for The Kaufman Organization. Often in the winter, buildings would be overheated with boilers operating over a weekend or weeknight. Daytime outdoor air temperature would reach 70 plus degrees yet the heating plant would still be operating, delivering heat to an already overheated building.

If a tenant complained of being cold the superintendent would manually override the limited Heat Timing Device to force heat to the entire building. Overheated Tenants would open windows because indoor temperatures were sweltering. Mr. Reid decided it was necessary to install an energy management system that would bring control to over 40 buildings from a central point.
After investigating several systems, Mr. Reid found only one company that addressed all his requirements. PEPCO Controls was selected because our engineers and technicians are exerts in how heating systems work and the diverse power of the DELTA Controls system.
Several gas heated buildings in the portfolio qualified for cash rebates that helped lower the Return On Investment.

Connecting 40 Buildings via Wide Area Network presented no problem for the DELTA System . It was clear that not only could the entire portfolio be networked but the system was limitless in what it could do. Gas Leak Detection and Carbon Monoxide Sensors were recently installed in every boiler room along with House Tank Temperatures sensors that were easily added to the system.
