What we do
Entic provides building owners with substantial energy and water savings through increased operational visibility and control under an affordable, easy-to-implement subscription model. Used by some of the most recognized names in hospitality, healthcare, commercial office real estate and sports, Entic provides real-time financial and engineering dashboards so that business and facility managers can make better decisions.
How we do it
Entic’s software uses a data-driven approach based on operational intelligence, analytics and advanced sensor technology, to deliver impactful savings within the first 30 days of deployment. Our approach begins with a focus on the largest consumer of energy in commercial buildings — HVAC. We provide real-time analytics which generate prescriptions recommending actions and measuring savings.
Entic was formed when two neighbors, an electrical engineer and a seasoned software architect, began talking about the inefficiencies of building cooling, heating and ventilation systems. Despite mechanical and technical advances like variable frequency drives (VFD) and building management systems (BMS), peak performance levels remained elusive.
With central plants representing about 42% of a building’s total energy usage, they concluded that even a modest improvement could yield big savings, and they set out to find the answer.
As they began exploring ideas, it dawned on them: If modern avionics could fly an airplane with lower fuel consumption than a human pilot, then a building’s systems could be made smart enough to instantly respond to a variety of conditions and deliver better energy efficiency. With the right software, they reasoned a system could communicate continuously with a building’s different components, quickly process information and orchestrate them to achieve the desired results.
Once development and testing were completed, the results exceeded their expectations. Today, Entic has documented energy savings as high as 40%.
Our Name and Logo
The name “Entic” is derived from the words ‘energy’ and ‘analytics’. Our logo features the Greek letter eta in lowercase, emulating the “n” in our name. The eta symbol is used in various branches of science and engineering to represent efficiency.
