The Challenge

The campus of St. John Parish in Goodyear is comprised of 7 separate buildings, including a church and school.  The facility uses 44 packaged DX HVAC units with 33 corresponding thermostats.  Attempting to monitor and adjust that many units takes valuable time, particularly in a dynamic use environment where schedules and usage patterns can vary daily.  The staff was ready to find a better solution.

“Autani is priced fair, easy to install, and very intuitive.”
Vince Kaderabek, ABM Project Sales Engineer

The Solution

With so many control systems on the market, St. John Parish looked to ABM for a recommendation.  ABM successfully determined their client’s needs, figuring out which specific features would work best for their facility.  ABM’s first choice was Autani’s EnergyCenter because the wireless solution fit the bill, providing an easy-to-use control system with intuitive scheduling features, all at a budget-friendly price.


Autani’s EnergyCenter system of wirelessly networked, managed thermostats was deployed at St. John Parish to provide the staff with an easy means of managing each HVAC unit on campus.  With an easy-to-use, point-and-click interface, EnergyCenter schedules heating and air conditioning setpoints with automated setbacks for unoccupied areas.

The Results

EnergyCenter delivered immediate and powerful HVAC control capabilities to St. John Parish.  As an added benefit, St. John Parish is also able to save energy and reduce heating and air conditioning costs.
