USE Controller

Adaptive Building Energy Management Controller
Reduce fuel use and increase occupant comfort

USE Controller™ is an intelligent device that manages the transfer of energy usage data from sensors and meters strategically placed throughout your building and that facilitates real-time, web-based, remote monitoring and control of boiler functions. For buildings that do not have an existing Energy Management System (EMS), US Energy Group will supply a controller that is correctly sized and configured to the building and adapted to its energy monitoring needs. All of our USE Controllers are compatible with USE Manager software and service packages.


USE Controller utilizes both interior and exterior temperatures to cycle the boiler more efficiently, reducing run-time and delivering exactly the right amount of heat to keep occupants comfortable. USE Controller reduces costs by up to 30% when used with USE Manager software and services. This robust energy management system collects the data you need to reduce operating costs, respond to alerts, and track energy performance through historical and comparative analyses.*
