USA: Johnson Controls has launched its OpenBlue Indoor Air Quality solution as a Service for buildings, by delivering energy-efficient, clean air outcomes with an innovative financing model.
According to Johnson Controls. OpenBlue Indoor Air Quality as a Service provides customers with a long-term proactive approach to IAQ to meet ever-changing health and safety compliance standards, using its OpenBlue technology to optimise IAQ and energy costs. It will launch globally next month.
Together with UL, Johnson Controls will use a combination of science and technology to assess a building’s indoor air quality, pinpoint areas of risk and determine benchmarks and KPIs that support better IAQ, energy efficiency and cost savings. Based on the results of the assessment, Johnson Controls will apply IAQ sensors, products and services required to meet customers’ desired outcomes.
To ensure desired outcomes are met, Johnson Controls will employ its global remote operations centres to provide 24/7 monitoring of critical IAQ values. In addition, Johnson Controls will provide annual IAQ reassessments and work with clients to enhance their operations.
Finally, OpenBlue Indoor Air Quality as a Service will be offered through an optional, predictable monthly financing model. Through this model, customers will not have to worry about making large upfront capital decisions. Since the model is scalable, Johnson Controls can help organisations shift their operational models from being Covid-19-reactive to productivity-proactive to meet longer-term goals, the company says.
“This suite of offerings delivers the market’s most comprehensive portfolio of solutions, plus expert guidance, to help customers cut building costs, raise productivity and exploit new revenue opportunities – all while delivering on their sustainability goals, resulting in healthy people, healthy places and a healthy planet,” said Ganesh Ramaswamy, vice president and president, Global Services at Johnson Controls.
