Why a Commercial Thermostat Can Save Your Business Money


You surely know all too well just how much you spend to heat and cool your business or commercial building. If there are ways to cut down on those costs, it’s absolutely worth learning more about it. We’ve got a great solution to the high cost of controlling the indoor climate for your business: an upgrade to your commercial thermostat. Here are the improvements you’ll see once you’ve made the change.

Energy Efficiency

The one constant, recurring cost of your heating and cooling is the utility bill that comes every month. Cutting down on that means twelve months of savings every single year. Today’s thermostats have made great strides from the thermostats of decades past. Many businesses are still operating with a manual dial, approximating the temperature they want to set and hoping for the best, and having no ability to program the thermostat to change the temperature of the building automatically. Even the early generations of programmable thermostats were clunky and difficult, and programming them can be time-consuming, confusing, and frustrating. 

There are a delightful variety of thermostats available today that make it easy to adjust temperature precisely and program settings for different times of day, different days of the week, and more. This means you won’t have to remember to adjust your thermostat every day, and you won’t end up paying for electricity you didn’t need in order to keep your business at a perfect temperature overnight or at other times when no one is there. Adjusting your temperature just ten degrees colder in the winter or ten degrees higher in the summer for even an eight-hour stretch of each day when you don’t require ideal temperatures can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars a year.

Decreasing HVAC Wear and Tear

The second major cost to consider when it comes to heating and cooling is the system itself. A repair can be costly, and replacing commercial HVAC systems is a very big expense. When your thermostat makes it easy to limit the use of the system without decreasing the comfort level in your business, there will be much less wear and tear on your air conditioner, your heating system, and the HVAC components that are used by both all year round. This will cut down on repair needs and can even considerably extend the lifespan of the HVAC system. Postponing system replacement by even a year or two is an enormous benefit. 

The Professional Touch

Upgrading your commercial thermostat is not a DIY job. It’s also not a job that should be done by a general maintenance worker. In order to ensure safe electrical work, comply with regulations, and reap all the benefits of the new thermostat, the job must be done by a trained, qualified, certified specialist.
