Hand Adjusting Thermostat

If you run a business in Longview, Texas, and have several employees, you’re probably well aware of the so-called “thermostat wars.” This is a common condition where your workers can’t pick a proper temperature without some mild bickering. Fortunately, there are ways to amend this problem. If you need help setting the thermostat to the right setting at your business for comfort and to save money, here are a few tips to help you find the perfect temperature.

Call a Meeting

Worker productivity is significantly impacted by temperature. If it’s too hot or too cold, your workers can’t perform at their highest level, costing you efficiency and money in the process. That’s why it’s best to call a meeting. You can ask workers for suggestions, and hopefully, you’ll get close to finding the right setting to maximize your employees’ effectiveness at the job.

Weekend Thermostat Settings

Unless you’re open on weekends, you have a little wiggle room when it comes to your thermostat setting. Over the summer, setting the thermostat to 78 degrees will save on energy costs. The same is true with a setting 55 degrees during the colder months.

Encourage Workers to Dress the Part

There’s a saying that there’s no temperature that’s too hot or too cold, just unsuitable clothing for the situation. Apply this idea when it comes to your workplace. Encourage workers to dress in layers so they always have the proper amount of clothing or lack thereof when it comes to the office.

Install a Smart Thermostat

If you have an outdated analog thermostat or a first-generation programmable thermostat, it’s time to upgrade. A smart thermostat is a relatively inexpensive asset that pays off within a few months of usage. It works much like a programmable thermostat, but it learns your habits. If you’ve ever forgotten to change the thermostat when you leave the office, the smart thermostat does the work for you.

Now that you know a bit more about thermostat settings, you can always have the ideal office temperature. So, let us help you install that new smart thermostat. Call JD’s A/C today at (903) 759-7483.
