DICTIONARY

Shoulder Months

Shoulder months are the months of the year when the temperature falls between 45 and 65 degrees, allowing buildings to leverage outside air instead of relying on internal systems for cooling and heating. 

Why it Matters

The shoulder months have the potential to bear the least expensive utility bills of the year, but only if you take advantage of them. As soon as the outside temperature hits between 45 and 65 degrees, you should adjust your economizer to allow in as much outside air as possible while ensuring the building temperature remains in a comfortable range. Real-time data can help you see your energy consumption aligned with the building’s inside and outside temperature to help you further optimize controls.
