Commercial Thermostat Services in Portland, OR

The thermostat is probably the part of your climate control systems that you interact with the most, as it’s the interface through which most heating and air conditioning functions are controlled. It also happens to be the most important part of any climate control system for that reason. Sadly, many home and business owners take their thermostats for granted, not really paying the devices much attention until they break down. Don’t be one of those people. Call Western Heating & Cooling today, and ask how we can improve your climate control systems with our thermostat services. We install, repair, maintain and replace commercial thermostats throughout Portland, OR.

Unique Commercial Thermostat Considerations

Commercial thermostat setups have a few differences from residential setups, but a few similarities, as well. One thing that is true for both residential and commercial climate control systems is that one thermostat is almost certainly not enough. Each thermostat can only measure the temperature in a fairly small area around itself, which means that it can’t adequately control the climate of the entire building without creating some uncomfortable hot and cold spots. With commercial buildings, multiple thermostats installed on each floor, occasionally supplemented by zone control, often solve this. Each thermostat ensures that its zone is kept comfortable, without being affected by the temperature in other areas of the building. All of these are considerations that need to be taken into account, which is why you need to take advantage of professional commercial thermostat services.

Options for Commercial Thermostats

There are many viable options for commercial thermostats available on the market. For example:

  • Adaptive Thermostats: Adaptive thermostats are quite advanced, and learn over time which patterns you use to keep comfortable. The more you use an adaptive thermostat, the more data it amasses about what qualifies as a comfortable temperature, when you prefer it to be hotter vs. colder, etc. After a while, the thermostat will be able to control the climate all on its own without you having to give it instructions!
  • Wireless Thermostats: Wireless thermostats involve one central thermostat, which is wired into the climate control systems through the wall, and a bunch of satellite thermostats, which are not. These satellite thermostats can be placed pretty much anywhere within range of the central thermostat, and help to dramatically expand the area that the system can monitor. When one of the satellite thermostats detects a need for heating or cooling, it sends a wireless signal to the central thermostat, which starts the appropriate system.

We Install and Service Commercial Thermostats

Installing commercial thermostats involves a bit of construction work and a lot of electrical work. It isn’t the sort of thing that anyone but a trained professional should be doing. If you need a thermostat installed, call Western Heating & Cooling and we’ll handle it for you.

You should also make sure that your thermostats get professional maintenance at least once a year. This helps to prevent any unnecessary problems. If and when a problem does crop up, though, you’ll want to call for repairs as soon as possible. We offer a full range of thermostat maintenance and repair services. Call today to set up an appointment with one of our expert technicians.
