The Internet of Things (IoT) is a remarkable technological breakthrough. Today, smart technology has led to ways we live that probably weren’t fathomable twenty or thirty years ago. Oh, how times change. Your home and business can both benefit from the use of intelligent tech. Smarter commercial HVAC control systems may seem more expensive than their traditional counterparts. But in the long run, you’ll be glad that you made the changes you did.
You Can Decrease Energy Costs
One of the biggest reasons to spring for such an upgrade is simple: you can cut back on energy consumption. This innovation saves you money. And that alone should be enough incentive to make the switch. In other words, smart thermostats are worth it. It seems easy enough to leave the thermostat set to one preferred temperature at face value and never adjust. That’s the wrong move. Precision sensors tell valves and dampers when they should run, and they also measure outside air, which can help the system determine the indoor temperature setting that is most appropriate.
Configure Scheduled Cycle Times
Schedules are massively important. Without them, few aspects of our daily lives and operations would run as smoothly. This means you can preheat the office before employees arrive; with colder weather on the way, that functionality is incredibly important. Through this upgrade, you can turn down the heat at the end of the business day. You can also program adjustments based on the day of the week, whichever holidays are happening, and when daylight savings time begins or ends.
Centralized Climate Control Command Center
Climate control is different for every building, depending on its purpose. Residential properties like homes, apartments, and condos typically have a handful of zones. On the other hand, larger businesses will have multiple zones with foot traffic and occupancy levels fluctuating throughout the day. Smarter commercial HVAC systems resolve this issue; you get one central system controller to change individual settings as needed.
Simplified Commercial HVAC System Integration
Systems integration is another technological advancement that you shouldn’t hesitate to enact. You can control the lighting and access control systems alongside the indoor temperature control and IAQ monitoring systems. Swiping in and out can help the system keep track of who is coming and who is going. That capability is even more important when your business doesn’t have to follow the standard 9-5 workday.
