Case Study
:
Superior Automotive Group

For 30 years, Superior has helped thousands of customers find the perfect vehicle for any need. With 13 automotive and 6 tractor dealerships across Arkansas, managing heating and cooling was a challenging task thanks to old thermostats. For an upgrade, Superior installed ecobee SmartBuildings across all their locations.

Challenge
:
Getting control of heating & cooling

Stores were frequently running in extremes, setpoints were inconsistent, and many units were operating all night when no one was around. Conner, Superior's Digital Services Manager, considered many options - including other commercial building automation systems that were too expensive and complicated. What Superior needed was simple: smart Wi-Fi thermostats that can be remotely controlled all in one app.

Approach
:
Automation without complications

ecobee SmartBuildings and smart thermostats were exactly the lightweight yet powerful solution Superior needed. Superior's own staff installed 150 smart thermostats using ecobee easy-to-follow installation guide included in every box.

ecobee remote SmartSensors — which detect temperature and occupancy — were strategically placed to optimize employee comfort across the entire facility, balancing temperatures even in non-ideal locations. All ecobee thermostats are then controlled from the SmartBuildings portal, accessed through the web or via mobile app.

Results
:
Improvements from day one

With all locations centrally controlled via SmartBuildings, Superior scheduled a consistent 72F at all retail facilities, and setbacks during off hours. In just a few months, Superior has seen consistent $400/month reductions on electric bills at one of their tractor dealerships. Conner regularly accesses his runtime and climate data through the SmartBuildings portal to conduct analysis and make adjustments on-the-go. In addition, Superior employee reports improved comfort and employee satisfaction with the use of ecobee SmartSensors.
