Building Controls include all the smart systems embedded in buildings, systems that are traditionally obscured by proprietary control standards and arcane details. Building control systems include heating, ventilation & air conditioning (HVAC), elevators, laboratory equipment, life/safety systems, access control, intruder detection, A/V event management and CCTV monitoring.
The objective of building insulation is to slow down heat transfer in building construction. These materials are required to keep buildings cooler in hot climates, or warmer in cold climates; methods may be different because of the necessity to manage humidity buildup differently. Occupied buildings always need to evacuate humidity. No substance can stop heat transfer from occurring.
