When to call your HVAC provider
Your local thermostat controls your HVAC system and can provide heat or cooling. A dark thermostat likely signals an electrical breaker trip. If restoring the breaker restores power to your thermostat, run the fan only for 5-10 minutes before changing the set point to a temperature that will run the compressor. Test cooling and heating operation and note if the breaker trips again. If the breaker trips, call your service technician and let them know which operational mode caused the electrical breaker to trip.
What Mesa does and does not impact in your space
Mesa does the hard work of recording how long each HVAC zone operates with sufficient granularity to make optimized decisions. HVAC (cooling plus fan energy) is the largest energy end use. Managing this load will maximize impact.
- Mesa brings transparency and accountability to comfort complaints. Temperature history is available in your Mesa dashboard.
- Mesa provides remote access from your browser. Change your space setpoint of HVAC mode from anywhere.
- Mesa provides supervisory control and data acquisition to an existing HVAC system.
Mesa does not impact:
- Equipment efficiency
- Equipment capacity
According to DOE Medium Office Commercial Reference Building, Interior plug loads are the single largest energy cost. Mesa’s smart plugs directly reduce interior plug loads. You chose what to power into these plugs which directly impacts the potential for savings.
