Manchester intelligent heating pioneer teams up with global HVAC giant to save businesses ‘millions’

Manchester sustainable technology expert, Pilot Group, is teaming up with global heating equipment manufacturer, Reznor, in an effort to save UK businesses millions of pounds a year on their energy bills.

Pilot Group’s Energy Management System (EMS) will be supplied exclusively alongside Reznor’s industry-leading HVAC equipment to create the NOVA EMS.

Combining Reznor’s technically advanced unit and radiant heater ranges with Pilot Group’s intelligent system, which monitors, controls, and improves the performance of a building’s energy outputs, users can make their operations as efficient as possible.

The solution will be ideal for businesses who operate in industry buildings, out of town retail spaces, warehouses and factories, such as those working in the manufacturing sectors, who are looking to reduce their energy bills and enhance employee comfort.

With Pilot Group’s EMS saving companies an average of 43% on their energy bills each year, the collaboration will provide businesses with a comprehensive, cost-effective heating system which can be controlled via smart technology.

Reznor offers the latest in HVAC technology, while Pilot Group’s EMS compliments it by autonomously monitoring and controlling the system using smart sensors and a self-learning algorithm to enable it to work as efficiently as possible.

The EMS’ sensors are located around different zones within a building and feed data back to the central control panel, which is then communicated to the building’s heaters so they can change their action appropriately.

Additionally, users can assess this data, which is backed up to the cloud, and implement strategies to reduce their energy outputs such as reducing them during off-peak times, with access available via the control panel or remotely from their smartphone or laptop.

Having invested more than £500K into its EMS division last year, Pilot Group says its EMS saved UK companies more than £1 million in energy costs during the past 12 months.

When combined with Reznor’s heaters, the EMS could provide companies with energy savings which would see the cost of the system paid back within a matter of years.

With the cost of energy bills remaining a cause for concern for businesses up and down the country, Pilot Group and Reznor’s partnership offers businesses an opportunity to combat these.

Lee Morgan, EMS managing director at Pilot Group, commented: “Reznor are at the forefront of the HVAC industry in terms of their technology, and so are a natural fit for Pilot Group’s EMS.

“Over the past 12 months there has been little relief from the price of energy bills and understandably the cost of these will give business owners sleepless nights as they look to make ends meet.

“This partnership is designed to stop that from happening by offering users a unique proposition with an all-encompassing system which will pro-actively work to reduce its energy output and deliver the savings which can be achieved.”

With a turnover of £45million and 160 employees, Pilot Group’s offer is focused on achieving carbon reduction and energy efficiency through the provision of energy management systems, electric vehicle charging points and traffic control systems.

Founded in 1888 in Mercer, Pennsylvania, Reznor delivers sustainable HVAC products and solutions to improve work environments in which people work and live in. In 2014 the company was acquired by Nortek Inc.
