Galpin Jaguar
Energy Savings Study

Galpin Motors a premier auto dealership in the US was the first to install The Bee System in their Galpin Jaguar Building.


The comfort issues were primarily driven by two factors.


First, their current thermostats were unable to solve the temperature imbalances created by varying heat loads in their showroom.


Second, their existing system required too much human intervention. Galpin staff were using space heaters under their desks in the summer as the HVAC was too cold.


We provided for a simpler and systematic approach that could respond to the complex needs of the building using Bosch Energy Advantage Controls.


We installed the Bosch Energy Advantage Controls (EAC).


The roof top packaged units were reprogrammed with EAC’s exclusive control algorithm to manage the air supply based on outside and inside air temperatures, mixing air, humidity, and static pressure using sensors and eliminating the wall thermostats.


From a physical point of view, EAC uses the given movement of the air molecules and reduces the air flow rates which significantly reduces fan noise, and eliminates uncomfortable and disturbing air flow, allowing people in the building feel comfortable, while reducing costs at the same time.

EAC visualizes all operating conditions and costs. The building operator always has an overview of all system costs since the system calculates the costs based on the current energy-source-costs in real-time.

EAC continuously measures all operating parameters of the energy supply in the ventilation ducts as well as in the rooms and compares it with the target area values saved in the system.


As a result, each air flap is ideally set and the parameters temperature, humidity, and air quality are balanced so that the most cost effective operating point within the system’s target area is achieved with the least amount of energy – while ensuring the ideal room temperature.


Within 24 hours, employees reported a noticeable difference in comfort. The building was being conditioned without human intervention thanks to the intuitive power of the EAC’s proprietary algorithms.


In addition to comfort, energy savings equal to 46% were measured in and independent study conducted by The Engineering Department of California State University Northridge.
