What is the Clicksav Device?
Clicksav contains a Wi-Fi Wireless Module that allows remote control of an HVAC system by interfacing between a thermostat and an HVAC system. Typically a thermostat is used to control an HVAC system. Clicksav allows to override some of the functionality of the existing thermostat. Clicksav utilizes algorithms and timing to save energy while providing the most efficient temperature control.
Clicksav needs to be power via the 24 VAC through the HVAC system’s circuit. It is placed between a thermostat and an HVAC system. The WIFI wireless module inside Clicksav allows control of the HVAC system remotely. Its calibrated temperature sensor allows to retain accurate measurement and report these online.
Fan mode, cooling mode, heating mode signals from the thermostat are received by Clicksav. Based on these signals Clicksav can be instructed to override the thermostat’s control of the HVAC system. By reporting thermostat status, what it is calling for, and room temperature, Clicksav can be controlled based on these conditions by a user.
The following functions are provided by Clicksav which overrides a typical thermostat’s functions:
- Choosing a specific compressor run time, and compressor rest time
- Fan extension (extend its run time) during cooling mode via predetermined algorithm calculations
- Heater shut down via compressor control (In heat-pump systems under electric mode)
- Fan extension implementation (extend its run time), in conventional (normal) HVAC systems, during heating mode via predetermined algorithm calculations
- Fan extension implementation (extend its run time), in electric Heat Pump HVAC systems, during heating mode via predetermined algorithm calculations
- Optional shut down of the fan when a compressor shut down occurs
Compressor control allows energy consumption to decrease. Trap cool air in the HVAC system after a compressor shuts off is circulated by the fan working on extended time. Compressor and fan shut down time can be managed remotely through a dedicated website. Remote control of the components in an HVAC system allows improved management of a building(s) that contain independent HVAC systems and a high quantity of Clicksav devices spread throughout several areas.
