All commercial buildings are different in their need for solutions to control their heating, cooling, and ventilation equipment.
Some of the factors that will determine the control needs of your building are:
- Types of heating and cooling equipment
- Ventilation requirements
- Daily, weekly, and yearly occupancy schedules
Your control needs may be as simple as a seven-day programmable thermostat if your weekly occupancy schedules are the same all year long.
For facilities that have differing schedules on different weeks or prolonged vacation days such as schools and Church’s, there is an energy saving benefit to investing in a system that is capable of scheduling holidays in advance. Operating your system at full capacity on days when the building is not occupied is a needless drain on your budget.
Standard heating and cooling rooftop units and split systems which have economizers for ventilation air may be bringing in a fixed amount of outdoor air anytime the system fan is running.
If there is no actual need for ventilation air, this results in a large amount of energy wasted. Large savings can be realized by having a system that is capable of demand control ventilation so outdoor air is only introduced to your building when needed.
