According to the US Energy Information Association, HVAC usage accounts for 23 percent of total energy consumption by businesses. That means heating, cooling, and ventilating your spaces is a significant overhead cost. And if you're not careful, you could end up wasting energy and driving up the price tag of your monthly energy bill. Here, we'll show you how integrated technology can help you manage climate control in your Dallas, TX, business.
Automated technology can help you reduce the amount of energy your thermostat is using. A combination of smart sensors and energy management software will help you stay afloat of what’s happening throughout your commercial space. And if you notice an opportunity to save, you can easily make adjustments with a single touch.
Many businesses use occupancy sensors to help manage light. But integrated technology means multiple systems can work together to help you benefit. When a room is not in use, your system can adjust the thermostat to a pre-set degree so that it won't waste energy cooling. And when someone enters the room, it will automatically lower the temperature.
Energy monitoring is a great way to keep track of the spaces that use the most electricity. Power meter controllers and branch monitoring transformers can help you keep track of specified areas so you can adjust settings to reduce costs.
Of course, you don’t have to go to extremes if you want to save right now. One of the easiest ways to save is by adding automated shades to your windows.
In colder months, most heat will escape through your windows, and that means your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. With automated shades, you can manage the temperature without lifting a finger.
When the room reaches a pre-specified degree, your shades will spring into action and lower. The lights will automatically rise to accommodate the loss of natural sunlight. The shade will create a pocket of air between itself and the window, which acts as an insulating cushion and prevents heat loss.During the summer, you can use sunshades to minimize glare and reduce heat gain from UV rays.
