Air conditioning and heating systems need a way to start and stop the equipment. Additionally, a way to monitor temperatures, start pumps, close dampers, and read the flow of air, water, and fuel for the systems. Modern DDC offers HVAC control more efficiency than just a plain old thermostat to start and stop the system. DDC can be used in just a simple air conditioning and heating all the way up to a multi-story building where hundreds of processes need to be controlled.

These comfort systems are often complex and need to have several things happen all at once and/or in different sequences. DDC systems allow all these processes to be automated and controlled with a precision that was unavailable before DDC evolved to where it is today. A building manager can log on from home and with a quick glance of some graphics and computer interface can tell if the building systems are okay. If a problem is detected sometimes and override form the remote place can offer a temporary solution to the problem. A building manager or technician can use the computer to troubleshoot problems remotely.

The modern direct digital control allows managers more flexibility, offer more efficient comfort, and brings older HVAC controls into the computer age.
