“To incorporate AI that automatically optimizes our HVAC performance is very exciting and we’re thrilled to be at the forefront of this solution in our industry. We’re on track to exceed the estimated savings guaranteed by EcoPilot Canada and were pleasantly surprised that Ecopilot®’s AI was also able to identify system issues we weren’t aware of, as well as recommendations for greater efficiencies, both that will result in additional energy savings.”
