The HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning) equipment installed in our commercial properties is used industry-wide in various applications. The mechanical equipment is adapted to accommodate the specific needs of the user. The thermostat, however, is used universally regardless of the system’s design. The key is to understand the use of the thermostat and how it relates to the system in your building.

The face of the thermostat cover can have a range of anywhere from 68 degrees to 76 degrees. For commercial office space, the systems are designed to cool to approximately 72 degrees.

A common misconception is that turning the thermostat down below 70 degrees will result in the faster cooling of the space. This is a fallacy. The same air temperature is delivered whether the thermostat is set at 70 degrees or 50 degrees. If you cannot maintain a 70-degree range, please call 216-282-0188 and request maintenance. Turning your thermostat down lower will not resolve your cooling problem. The unit may freeze up, which will cause a further delay in repair and possibly damage the equipment.
