“Parity makes my job easier. I can go on Pi to see what the temperatures are. One winter, I noticed my DHW dropped between 1-3 am by 15 degrees… it was a leak in the valve gasket. It didn’t affect anyone. Parity lets me be proactive.”

How Parity Helped 201 East 79th Street

At the start of this project, 201 East 79th Street had already completed LED lighting and facade upgrades. The board at this NYC co-op was looking for other cost-effective energy efficiency opportunities and they decided to focus on their HVAC systems. 201 East 79th Street has both central heating and cooling systems which results in high operating costs.

Parity integrated with the existing HVAC controls and installed additional non-proprietary hardware that was needed to enable our cloud-based system to receive real-time data from the building. This included installing control panels, VFDs, and 20 in-apartment temperature sensors.

The real-time information our software collects serves as inputs for our algorithms and allows for automated efficiency adjustments to be made to the building’s HVAC control systems instantly. Additionally, the building uses this information to avoid energy use during peak hours, which often results in savings. We track the building systems’ performance and utility consumption, summarizing how the building is performing in a quarterly report for the board. This includes an analysis of how the building is tracking against Parity’s savings guarantee by providing itemized savings results at both the equipment and full building levels.
