Summertime is here, and the heat is coming in waves. The Midwest, South and Southwest are all experiencing a hot summer and temperature control in buildings is an absolute necessity. To ensure that their buildings remain cool and comfortable at all times, while still keeping energy use down, more and more property managers are turning to automation temperature control systems. These systems are easy to install and extremely valuable for any property. There are several key benefits to installing these systems.
Firstly, building automation temperature controls keep the building cool at all times. During the afternoon when the sun is blazing down, the building automatically consumes more energy and cools the building. During the evening when there are fewer people and the temperature drops, much less energy is consumed. This makes building management much easier and more effective. Additionally, this management can be conducted through an easy to use software interface.
Secondly, less energy use leads to lower energy bills. That makes a significant difference in the net operating income of a property and the overall valuation. A small investment in an automated system can lead to a big increase the value of a property.
Lastly, the system can be customized to each building’s specific needs. For example, some hospitals need to have comfortable temperatures at all times as they have patients and doctors working at all hours. On the other hand, schools are only occupied during a set of defined hours and often have very few people in the facility at other times. Energy use can drop dramatically during those periods.
