How 75F Improves Heat Pump, Fan Coil Unit, & PTAC Energy Efficiency

By Sarah Baker on Jun 11, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Imagine a residential smart thermostat with machine learning, remote control, and a mobile app. Apply that to commercial buildings and you get the wireless-networked 75F Smart Stat: the world’s smartest commercial thermostat. Then combine the 75F Smart Stat with a full Building Automation System (BAS) and you get an incredible combination of group controls for several HVAC systems, along with lighting and boiler and chiller plant controls for a unified, wholistic commercial BAS at half the cost of the competition.

Let's take a look at how it works.

4 Energy Conservation Measures for Energy Consultants

By Sarah Baker on May 21, 2019 10:29:27 AM

Frustrated about how few of your Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) get implemented? Change the payback equation with a simple, low cost Building Automation System (BAS) from 75F that can support nearly all ECMs, prescriptive and custom. With modern technology, such as cloud computing, machine learning, wireless networking and mobile apps, 75F can rapidly implement ECMs with little or no programming and at half the cost when compared to a traditional BAS, with energy savings from 30% to 50%, a lower installation cost and a one to three-year payback.

How 75F Increases Energy Efficiency for Rooftop Units

By Sarah Baker on Apr 30, 2019 9:56:00 AM

Do you have several rooftop units (RTUs) with nothing more than a thermostat to control them? 75F provides a simple way to get remote control and group your RTUs at a lower cost. Imagine having the capabilities of a building automation system at the cost of a WiFi thermostat. 

Retrofit existing or spec new build rooftop units with 75F to increase energy efficiency and enjoy remote control and diagnostics at a fraction of the competition. Advanced economizer controls, including Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) and comparative enthalpy economy, from 75F improve efficiency by up to 30%, while improving occupant comfort and indoor air quality. An easy installation and a lower cost, as well as payback in as little as one year, makes this an easy decision.

4 Ways to Increase Employee Comfort and Productivity

By Sarah Baker on Feb 15, 2019 1:15:43 PM


Every office knows the afternoon slump. Employee eyes glaze over as they find themselves stuck reading the same line of an email. A yawn spreads contagiously around the room. A small crowd gathers around the snack table. If your office had a nap room, you know it would be full.

Maybe it's just fatigue – but it's likely to be something more, especially in an older building. Commercial buildings are notorious for trapping CO2 and VOCs, which can cause lethargy, headaches, nausea, flu-like symptoms and reduced cognitive abilities. In a room full of people, these compounds build up throughout the day, causing the dreaded afternoon slump. Learn how you can use your commercial building to combat them!

The ROI of IAQ

By Sowmya Ponnada on Jan 9, 2019 1:37:43 AM

There has been a fundamental shift in the design and operations of office buildings over the past decade; from being places that will please investors to spaces that prioritize the needs and desires of their tenants. Recognizing that a healthy, happy workforce is a crucial component of a productive, successful business, companies have been investing in ergonomic, technologically equipped, impressively designed workplaces. But, their Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) remains one of the most crucial yet often neglected parameters.

Multiple studies have conclusively tied indoor air quality to employee health, absenteeism, productivity and employee morale and retention. But what is the business value in investing in better IAQ? What does improved IAQ mean to your business’ bottom line? Can you afford to ignore ‘Indoor Air Quality’ and its impact any longer?

5 Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality in Your Building

By Sarah Baker on Nov 29, 2018 9:07:40 AM

On some days, your employees are coughing and sneezing. On others, they appear to be sluggish and sleepy, experiencing what many have deemed the "2:30 feeling" since the airing of 5-Hour Energy's advertising campaign.

So what can you do about it?

Although a company curfew and extra caffeinated coffee could be the solution for a few, it may not solve the overarching issue. Why? Because many offices suffer from "sick building symptoms," including bad indoor air quality (IAQ). In fact indoor air quality is likely to be 2-5 times worse than outdoor air quality. Given that most of us spend 90% of our time indoors, improving your building’s indoor air quality can significantly affect employee and customer health, comfort and productivity, sometimes increasing cognitive ability by 101%!

So what can you do to improve the indoor air quality in your building?
