As the world improves due to changes in technology, so does our home and business HVAC systems. Today, technology has enabled almost everything in your house or office to be “smart,” and that extends to commercial HVAC systems too!
You’ve undoubtedly heard of Wi-Fi thermostats for your house, and maybe you’ve even installed one of these valuable gadgets that allow you to adjust your home’s temperature from your phone or computer. However, there are additional advantages to upgrading to smart HVAC system.
1. Smart HVAC systems lower your energy expenses
You can do more to conserve energy with more intelligent commercial HVAC systems than just turning the thermostat down while no one is in the office. Smart commercial HVAC controllers with more accurate sensors give more constant temperature management. Old thermostats can only switch the system on and off, resulting in systems whirling on and off all day, wasting a lot of energy. Don’t forget about employees constantly adjusting old thermostats…
2. It helps with scheduling day to day, holidays, or any other needs
You may also make use of extensive scheduling features, which enable you to warm or cool the workplace before workers arrive or turn down the HVAC system immediately before people depart to conserve energy. With commercial HVAC controllers, it is possible to set various schedules for each day of the week, holidays, daylight savings time, different zones, ventilation requirement controls, and so much more.
3. Monitoring and control are centralized
Climate control for a commercial site can be very complicated, especially if you do not have the right systems in place. In contrast to a single zone in a house, you may have many zones with varying heating, cooling, and ventilation needs. With smart commercial HVAC controllers, you can trust a centralized system that can regulate every zone in your workspace.
4. Integration with other systems is possible
Smart technology may be incorporated so that you can manage many of your building’s systems from a single interface after your system has been properly designed and installed. That means your commercial HVAC controls may communicate with other systems in your building depending on the HVAC requirements during certain times, when certain events or triggers happen within the building, etc.
What if you could automate the control of your HVAC depending on when people enter and go, what systems are in use, etc? For example, use of some machinery in your building may require increased ventilation, with smart sensors that can automatically start running when necessary instead of someone manually turning that system on and potentially forgetting to turn it off. These custom smart configurable commercial HVAC controls are ideal for companies that do not operate regular predictable schedules.
5. Smart HVAC controllers help avoid downtime, increased expenses, and prematurely worn out HVAC systems
Many companies, mainly retail shops, restaurants, and even office buildings, may swiftly come to a standstill due to an HVAC problem. A smart HVAC control system can monitor the performance of your equipment and notify you when it needs attention. This lets you fix the issue before it escalates to an emergency breakdown scenario.
With so many alternatives available, it may seem to be a difficult effort to sift through all of the information and choose which sort of system is ideal for you. Hopefully, this guide can help you find which sorts of systems are most suited for your company and building location.
