All small business owners are looking for easy ways to save on energy costs, especially as we approach the summer months of the year. To help with this task, the professionals at American Services wanted to share three control system upgrades that can be utilized to do just that, save you money on your energy bills. All of these control systems help to ensure your HVAC equipment is only being used when necessary and can be installed on both new and older units. Let’s get started with our three examples.
- Programmable Thermostats – Installing a programmable thermostat is the easiest, most cost-effective way to ensure the proper use of your HVAC unit. When you switch to a programmable thermostat, you can control when your building is heated or cooled – usually by day of the week and time of day. For example, if you are only in your office from 8 am to 5 pm, a programmable unit will allow you to keep the office at a comfortable temperature during work hours and then cool it down or warm it up when no one is there.
- Multiple Zones – Dividing your facility into zones is a way to cool or heat only the areas of your building that are being used during specific times of the day. This allows you to keep only the occupied areas of your building cooled or heated, while others are not.
- Demand or CO2 Sensors – This new technology allows your system to measure the amount of CO2 present and regulates air quality based on those readings as opposed to the old assumed occupancy model.
