Wireless Pneumatic Thermostat
Preliminary Technology Assessment
What is this technology?
The Wireless Pneumatic Thermostat provides standard pneumatic thermostats with networked Direct Digital Control (DDC) functionality. Wireless Pneumatic Thermostats can operate as a stand-alone system or integrate with an existing Building Automation System.
Why is GSA interested?
Heating and cooling equipment represents roughly 35% of total energy consumed by GSA buildings. A preliminary assessment found that approximately 40% of GSA facilities still incorporate some pneumatic thermostats. This technology promises to cost-effectively deliver energy and costs savings by improving the controllability of these thermostats.
