To say Applied Controls is experienced in building automation is an understatement. Applied Controls has been installing building automation systems since 1991. And some of our staff has experience prior to that. We have been installing, servicing, integrating, and expanding building control systems longer than most of our competitors. When you work with us you can be confident we know building controls, HVAC, energy management, and indoor air quality.
We are proud to be Chicagoland’s only Authorized Building Controls Specialist for Johnson Controls. We have well over 25 years of experience installing and servicing Johnson Controls products, with extensive experience in Johnson’s Facility Explorer product line. As Chicago’s only Authorized Building Controls Specialist we have direct access to Johnson Control’s factory resources such as products, training, certification, and technical support.
Our designers, installers, and technicians are also well trained on Honeywell’s WEBs product line. We have extensive experience in installing, servicing, extending, and integrating the Honeywell Tridium based AX and N4 products.
Improperly sized control valves are difficult to control, waste energy, wear faster, and can be the root cause of control problems in your building. The correct method of sizing a control valve takes into account many requirements including, line size, flow rates, pressure drop, system pressure, media, temperature, fail position, control type, and other factors. We are experts in the process of selecting the proper valve for your particular application. Let us help you. If you are looking for a whole new control system, or just one single valve replacement, we can ensure the control valves in your building have all the proper characteristics to ensure they function properly and have a long life. We are providers of Johnson Controls, Honeywell, and Belimo control valves, amongst others.
Variable frequency drives (VFD) are increasingly popular and common on HVAC motor applications such as fan motors and pump motors. They provide numerous benefits including energy savings, longer motor life, improved control, and provide useful operational information to your building engineers. Often, installing VFD are eligible for ComED rebates making their installation a smart financial decision adding to the already proven technical benefits. Applied Controls can work with you to understand your specific application to ensure the correct VFD is provided and installed to best meet your needs. We are very experienced in sizing, selecting, installing, and commissioning VFDs. And if you already have a building automation system, there is a good chance we can integrate it into your automation system for even more visibility and control by your building engineers. We proudly offer the most popular VFDs such as Johnson Controls and Honeywell as well as many others.
