Frequently Asked Questions: Student Housing Management
What are student housing energy management best practices?
Student housing energy management best practices commonly include using energy-efficient lighting and appliances, installing programmable smart thermostats to optimize heating and cooling, conducting regular energy audits, and implementing occupancy sensors to control lighting and HVAC in unoccupied areas. This can typically be controlled via an energy management system, delivering real-time energy savings data, streamlining student housing management. Additionally, informing students of the implementation of an energy management software, including how it works, can help reduce energy consumption and overall operational costs. Finally, it is equally important to solicit student feedback once the energy management solution has been implemented for a few months, ensuring all the settings are properly optimized.
How can smart thermostats help student housing managers optimize energy consumption?
Smart thermostats can help streamline student housing management by optimizing energy consumption via a centralized energy management system. Smart thermostats automatically adjust temperatures based on real-time occupancy patterns and historical performance data, ensuring optimal temperatures at all times. In other words, smart thermostats ultimately guarantee that heating and cooling are used efficiently, reducing energy consumption and overall operational costs.
What are challenges in student housing energy management?
Student housing management can be overwhelming at first, but with our Energy Management System by your side it doesn’t have to be. Challenges in student housing energy management include highly fluctuating occupancy levels, varying energy consumption patterns, and limited control over students’ energy behaviors. Indeed, students may be less attentive to energy conservation, leading to wasteful practices. However, Verdant’s smart thermostats come equipped with convenient features such as Night Occupancy Mode, Dynamic Intelligent Recovery, and Humidity Control that help keep energy consumption in check at all times.
Why is energy management important in the student housing industry?
Implementing energy-saving best practices is crucial in student housing management. For one, student housing complexes tend to demand significantly higher energy consumption. Student housing facilities also typically accommodate a larger number of residents with varying energy behaviors and preferences. As such, convenient energy management software and smart thermostats can be used to automate energy consumption, lower operating costs and energy usage, without compromising guest comfort and satisfaction. In fact, energy management solutions can also be configured to deliver real-time updates, providing further energy savings.
How can Verdant help student housing managers reach their ESG goals?
Verdant’s energy management systems are proven to reduce energy usage and carbon emissions, all-while increasing HVAC equipment lifespan. Our energy management software can be used to generate energy savings data in real-time from wherever you may be, helping your student housing facility reach their ESG goals, with a particular focus on its Environmental (E) impact. Real-time reporting capability is ideal when formulating upcoming ESG goals, ensuring you have everything you need to make informed decisions.
What other benefits can come from the Verdant energy management system?
Beyond enhanced HVAC control and reduced operating costs, Verdant’s energy management software provides a number of benefits, particularly as it applies to student housing management. For one, student housing managers can easily access their user-friendly energy management dashboard from the Verdant app (compatible with Apple and Android devices, and available on desktop). Additionally, our energy management solution provides occupancy-based visibility as well as a seamless demand response integration, ensuring optimal energy consumption and usage.
