Programmable thermostats are a great tool that can help you greatly reduce your operating costs by lowering your business energy bills. They are perfect for daily use, and can help save money by shifting indoor temperatures to a lower level when the building is not in use. Decrease your overhead and increase your bottom line. Set your thermostat for savings today.
A programmable thermostat allows you to set programs around your daily or weekly operating schedule. They’ll automatically turn up the temperature so the structure is at the highest level for employees and customers when they arrive; and, decrease it at the close of business. You can even have separate programmability for extended closures like weekends or holidays.
While increased profit margins are always at the top of your list, manually adjusting your workplace thermostat is probably not at the forefront of your daily tasks. It’s easy to overlook. Having consistent comfortability for your staff and customers is easy to achieve with a programmable thermostat.
Unfortunately, not all heating systems are ideal for use with a conventional programmable thermostat.
- Standard programmable thermostats aren’t recommended for use for the warming function of heat pumps. When in heating mode, a setback in temperature can reduce the heat pump’s efficiency. You’ll use less energy just keeping your temperatures as a moderate level.
- Electric resistance heating systems like baseboard heaters can’t function with a typical programmable thermostat. They require a thermostat that can control electrical circuits, and few programmable thermostats are available with these capabilities.
- Radiant floor heating systems utilize a network of pipes under floors to provide heat.They take much longer to achieve temperature change than other options, eliminating the benefits of a programmable thermostat.
