The act of setting back the temperature of a building during unoccupied nighttime hours to reduce energy consumption and cost. When configured properly, the building will have enough time to warm up in the morning before tenants arrive.
Why it Matters
Nighttime setbacks can help drive energy savings and reductions in utility spend. Advanced tools, like Aquicore’s Optimal Start Time feature, use machine learning algorithms that take into account building characteristics, the building operating schedule, and the outside temperature to tell you the best time to start your building in the morning.
