What are Weather Activated Heating Controls?

Large heating systems for multi-unit or commercial buildings are designed to heat the building, and then keep temperatures as close to the set-point as possible. To do this using the least amount of energy possible maintaining heating system efficiency is key. Energy efficiency guarantees that the heating system will use the least amount of energy while keeping the building and Read More

Energy Efficiency in Commercial Heating

Heat Timer Internet Based, Wireless Heating Control Systems

In the United States, commercial energy use accounts for almost 19% of the total energy consumed in the country. At the top of the list are office, retail, educational and healthcare buildings as well as large apartment complexes. One of the most significant opportunities commercial buildings have for reducing their consumption is the implementation of intelligent energy-efficient HVAC control systems. Read More

What is A Tempering Valve?

A tempering valve mixes hot and cold water to create water at the perfect temperature to distribute to sinks and showers. They are typically used in hotels or office buildings, anywhere where there is centralized delivery of hot water. If the water delivered is too warm, scalding can occur. If stored water is too cold, bacterial growth can occur inside Read More

Types of Domestic Hot Water Valves.

3 way mixing valve by Heat Timer

24/7 availability of hot water at the right temperature is a hot button issue for facility managers in the hospitality, education and healthcare industries. To avoid both scalding and bacteria growth, water must be stored at a high temperature, then mixed with just the right amount of cold water before being delivered to the end user. The valves that provide Read More

Why Heat-Timer Controls are Considered Part of a Green Heating Solution

While “green solutions” are often looked at as renewable energy or recycled materials, in the building heating controls industry, this includes solutions that save the customer in overall energy consumption. Less energy used typically means less energy produced which means lower carbon footprint, less pollution from dirty energy sources, etc… And incidentally, the other meaning of “Green” applies too.
