I need to permanently change my HVAC setpoints

In this guide, we'll delve into the concept of set points, how they contribute to HVAC optimization, and how you can make adjustments when necessary to promote energy savings without compromising comfort in your business.


GlacierGrid uses two different set points to optimize HVAC control and ensure energy savings:

Home = Building is Occupied
During occupied hours when your building is bustling with activity, GlacierGrid takes measured steps to reduce energy consumption. We raise the cooling set point in summer or lower the heating set point in winter by just a few degrees. This slight adjustment ensures energy savings without compromising the comfort of your employees and customers.
Suggested Set Points: 68°F - 74°F

Sleep = Building is Unoccupied 
When your building is unoccupied, such as during overnight hours, GlacierGrid prevents the scenario where HVAC systems run continuously or rely on manual intervention to be turned off. Sleep settings ensure that HVAC systems remain inactive when the building is unoccupied, allowing you to save energy in your sleep.

Suggested set points: 60°F - 85°F 

Benefits of GlacierGrids Set Points

  • Energy Savings: The key benefit of GlacierGrid's set points is energy savings. By adjusting temperature settings intelligently during occupied and unoccupied hours, you can significantly reduce your HVAC system's energy consumption, leading to lower utility bills.
  • Environmental Impact: Reduced energy consumption not only saves costs but also reduces your carbon footprint, contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly workspace.
  • Ease of Use: GlacierGrid automates the process, eliminating the need for manual adjustments. This means you can achieve energy efficiency without the hassle of frequent thermostat tweaks.
  • Reduced Maintenance: Preventing frequent thermostat adjustments can extend the life of the HVAC system and reduce maintenance costs. Unnecessary adjustments can strain the system and lead to premature wear and tear.
