Calor Gas is the largest UK supplier of bottled and bulk liquid petroleum gas (LPG), primarily supplying domestic and off-grid customers.
Its head office accommodates approximately 250 staff, and uses temperature and relative humidity loggers to ensure that the correct environmental conditions are maintained.
Five data 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.
Tinytags count loggers are used to identify cold and hot water usage patterns in the head office, to assist with the design of a more energy efficient hot water system.
The loggers are not used continuously but are available to be deployed as necessary upon demand.
Facilities Manager Bob Simmonds – who responsible for maintaining the environmental conditions in the company’s offices – 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.
