Mazévo + Events2HVAC: An Energy- and Effort-Saving Integration

16 July, 2021

Imagine an integration between your room scheduling solution and your HVAC system that enabled rooms to be held at the ideal, energy-conserving temperature when vacant and then brought to the perfect, attendee-friendly temperature just in time for an event. The savings—both in terms of energy and labor costs—would be incredible.

Actually, you don’t have to imagine it at all. You can experience it! Mazévo now integrates with Events2HVAC™, a building automation application from the experts at Streamside Solutions.

Why Are We Thrilled About This Partnership? Three Main Reasons.

We’ve known the team at Streamside Solutions for many years, and are thrilled about this new partnership for many reasons. Three of the most compelling are:

  1. The Events2HVAC integration will reduce energy use. It’s a truly “green” solution that your scheduling department can—and should—be proud of and put out there as proof of your commitment to the environment.
  2. It will save your organization money. The ROI on this integration is high. In fact, implementing it will more than pay for Mazévo when you consider our per-room cost.
  3. It will save your team time. It only takes a few minutes for your staff members to visit rooms ahead of events and adjust the thermostat. But those minutes add up quickly, especially if you schedule many rooms in a building or on a campus. This integration eliminates that time.

Examples of Actual Energy and Time Savings

Streamside Solutions knows how to quantify energy and time savings—it’s what they’ve built their very successful business on, after all. Every organization’s savings will be different, of course, but to give you a sense of what’s possible, here’s some data obtained from their system users:

  • Energy savings: $0.50–$0.81/square foot/year or $250-$1200/room/year
  • Labor savings: 2-20 hrs/week
  • ROI: Typically in less than a year, ROI ranges from 135% to 860%

Yes… Serious savings! And here are more numbers from pilot implementations (projected from user data):

As System Enhancements Go, This Is a No-Brainer

One of the best things about this type of operational improvement is that once the integration has been created, it runs in the background—providing incredible savings month after month, year after year, with little, if any, input from your team.
