Choosing a Commercial Thermostat

Thermostats act as the control mechanism for your HVAC system, which makes it one of the most important components in your home. It’s even more important for a commercial setting, where you need not only a comfortable environment for employees and customers, but is necessary to keep products safe and equipment like computers functional. If you’re in the market for a new commercial thermostat here in Bridgeville, DE it pays to do your homework beforehand. Qualified companies like ours can help you select the right unit and install it in a timely fashion for you. Here’s a short list of questions you should consider while making up your mind.

  • Do you need multiple zones? Some business settings have multiple residents whose businesses need differing temperatures. Others may require one temperature for one part of the business and another for a separate part. That will have a huge impact on the necessity of multiple thermostats, and possibly necessitate the addition of a zone control system or similar upgrades, depending upon your business.
  • Do you need to operate the thermostat remotely? Depending on the nature of the business, it might be desirable to add a smart thermostat, which allows you (or your employees) to control it remotely with an app on the phone. That allows you to make needed adjustments at night or over the weekend without having to go into the office space.
  • What kind of programming features do you need? Most commercial thermostats come with basic programming features, but if your business needs something specific, you should see about a unit with more sophisticated options. For example, if you run a restaurant, you may need to adjust the temperature during the lunch and dinner rush to accommodate the presence of a high number of people in your space (which always raises the temperature).
