A room regulator is a smart control system for rooms that use heating and cooling systems. It provides many functions such as room temperature control, energy consumption monitoring and automatic adjustment of the lighting level.
During the installation of a room regulator, you should follow the basic rules for proper wiring: Make sure to connect the correct wires with the appropriate terminals. If the thermostat is mounted in the building wall, it needs to be positioned as level as possible so that it can reach the coiled bimetallic spring and activate it correctly when the room temperature rises or drops. This helps to keep the room thermostat in proper calibration and allows the thermostat to provide accurate temperature control to the heating and cooling systems.
For example, if you are working with an old-fashioned room thermostat that has a single-wire heating/cooling circuit, you must connect the red and white wires (in most cases) to the “R” and “W” terminals on the backing plate for the thermostat. The white wire is used to power the thermostat’s operating control circuit board.
This makes sure that the thermostat will work properly with the heating and air conditioning equipment in your building, and it also allows you to make changes or additions to the heater or air conditioner without having to worry about changing the wiring.
When you are finished wiring your room regulator, you should plug it in and then turn it on. You will see the display screen appear on the front of the device, which provides information about the current room temperature and the time.
It is important that the device is not exposed to strong sunlight, so that it can read the room temperature accurately and reliably. In this way, the optimum control of the temperature is possible and you can save energy.
Once you have the device connected, you should adjust the settings according to the desired function of the two-state room regulator. Depending on the model, it is possible to make several adjustments such as setting the optimum start or selecting the heating / cooling mode for each zone.
You should also choose a room protection program that is adapted to your specific situation. This is especially helpful for hotels that have a lot of rental rooms and want to offer maximum comfort to their guests during their stay, while at the same time keeping a tight control over the temperature deviation from the setpoint during unoccupied periods of the day.
For more advanced energy savings, you can even have the room regulator respond to the power company’s demand response program by imposing a configured maximum output per zone. This feature is available on all EchoControl Room Controllers and will help to save your energy while helping the environment.
