Control Sequence Benchmarking

Control Sequencing Benchmarking™ compares the energy consumption of an existing mechanical system control sequence method to a best-in-class control sequence for that equipment peer group.


  • Establish data-driven best practices for HVAC control strategies
  • Implement standard operating procedures for HVAC system operation across multiple facilities
  • Quickly identify system performance impacts caused by deviations in control set points due to operator overrides and/or control device failures
  • Accurately estimate potential energy savings of alternative HVAC control strategies


In this case we are comparing fan tracking control sequences. The benchmarking process is normalized, so a fan of any size can be compared to any other fan system using similar control sequences.
