Climate control systems monitor and maintain the temperatures in an indoor environment, unlike old-school systems that just pump air into a space. Over the years, we have gotten more precise with temperature and humidity controls, and the result has been healthier, more comfortable, and more consistent indoor environments.
What is climate control in air conditioning and heating systems? The first thing that probably comes to mind is the thermostat on your wall. However, the thermostat is only one piece of the puzzle. Modern HVAC systems installed by SUI come equipped with a level of control that building owners could only dream of previously.
Depending on the scale and complexity of a given facility, our systems are capable of zoned heating and cooling, air quality monitoring, and more. The best part is that these systems can all be controlled remotely, are moderated through automation tools, and create predictable energy bills year round.
Control systems make heating and air conditioning systems more flexible in two distinct ways. First, it’s about how you actually control the system and, second, what those controls allow you to do.
Modern HVAC units are integrated components rather than separate systems. While each and every unit isn’t necessarily being independently controlled, this setup allows for greater access to each of the qualities that you care about, all from your mobile device.
Many HVAC systems have zone climate control measures that change the heating or cooling for a specific area of your home or office. Zone climate control systems offer remote monitoring and control options to help you change the ambient temperature in your home or office, no matter where you are.
This means that either onsite or offsite, a building manager can monitor and modify the internal conditions of a facility from zone to zone. If you’ve ever been on vacation and realized you left the heat or AC on, mobile controls help you solve that problem quickly.
The enhanced control and monitoring of control systems offer the secondary benefit of eliminating the surprise every month when the utility bill comes around. Control systems allow you to optimize for different things like energy efficiency or consistent internal temperatures.
There are obvious trade-offs for how you set your system, but at least controls give you power that the “set it and forget it” thermostats of the past could not. Energy-efficient commercial heating was, in the past, almost a non-existent concept, at least in comparison to the control-enabled systems of today.
Control and monitoring systems aren’t limited to controlling air temperature. Humidity is a major factor for productivity in the workplace and comfortable living at home. If you are waking up every morning with dry, cracked skin or if the office feels muggy, chances are that morale is going to take a hit.
Because humidity is primarily regulated by the HVAC system, controls allow you to create an environment that is actually a shelter from harsher conditions outside. For retail spaces especially, this can actually have a direct effect on your bottom line through sales. There is nothing quite like walking into a store on a humid summer day. And it’s often difficult to leave.
One of the biggest benefits of energy-efficient climate control is letting building managers take their hands off the wheel, as it were. Once a system has been calibrated correctly and is being properly maintained through a preventative maintenance agreement, automated control systems can take the reins.
Facility managers have better things to worry about than adjusting thermostats throughout a facility, and automation tools let a system work with them as opposed to against them.
Whether multiple systems in an industrial facility need to be integrated to work seamlessly or a homeowner is looking to make temperature adjustments from his or her phone, Service Unlimited has it covered.
