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 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.
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."
