Assessing temperature and relative humidity with Tinytags helps maintain the correct environmental conditions in the workplace, while Tinytag count loggers identify cold and hot water usage patterns.
Calor Gas is the largest UK supplier of bottled
and bulk liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG), mainly supplying domestic and
off-grid customers. Their head office accommodates approximately
250 staff, and Facilities Manager Bob Simmonds is
responsible for ensuring that the correct environmental
conditions are maintained in this and other company
buildings across the UK. Five Tinytag Ultra 2 indoor
temperature and relative humidity loggers record
conditions locally in buildings that may be suffering from
unacceptable changes in temperature, to build up a pattern which
can help determine the cause - or in most cases prove that it is a
perceived change and not an actual change.
Tinytag count data logger has also been used to
assess usage patterns of cold and hot water in the
head office, to assist with the design of a more energy efficient
hot water system.
The loggers are not all being used continuously but are
available to be deployed as necessary upon demand. Bob comments,
"I chose Tinytags as a simple, cost-effective and user
friendly but independent option that can be installed anywhere and
left to gather data. They appear to be very robust units, after
some ten years of use they are all operating well. The results are
easy to use and interrogate, and transferring the data to an Excel
format enables simple further data presentation."
