In the home environment, thermostats are designed to keep the indoor environment at a pre-set temperature, helping to keep the structure cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Today, homeowners can even purchase advanced thermostats that limit the use of the heating and cooling units during hours when nobody is inside the home, saving further money on utility costs. These same basic principles of thermostats can also be applied to the industrial environment, only in addition to controlling heating and cooling units (if applicable), they can also help maintain exhaust, air make-up and circulation fans to keep the warehouse environment comfortable, while saving on utilities costs in the process.
Essentially, because the thermostat is working to control the environment, the exhaust, air make-up, circulation fans and anything else that is programmed to work with it will only run and operate when necessary and not around-the-clock, as they might have done before their installation. This unquestionably saves on utility costs while also ensuring that the environment is safe and comfortable for workers.
In any work environment, employee comfort is key. Studies show that workers who are comfortable on the job aren’t only more efficient with their daily tasks and duties, but happier overall as well. And installing a mechanical thermostat to control and monitor the work environment isn’t just a win for workers; but a win for managers as well in cost reduction. That means more money in your bottom line. Thermostats are an accessory worth having in your facility.
