Mobile App and Alarm Notification
At a high level, there are really two key area’s where Heat-Timer Genesis™ pushes the envelope of capability for a modern heating control. One area is certainly its ability to save small building owners on fuel costs while maintaining even better resident comfort. But the other area is certainly its ability to improve the quality of life, and ease of use for building managers, owners, supers and HVAC technicians alike, owing to its completely internet and mobile enabled interactions.
Heating Control Remote Alarms
One key area is that of remote alarms. Genesis Heat-Timer ™ can send real-time alarms to designated users via either email or text, or within the free Heat-Timer® Mobile App. Furthermore, alarm thresholds can be set based on user preference. There are also more types of alarms available than ever
before, and these alarms provide instant and clear indication as to what they are and where the problem is located. In many cases an alarm condition can be managed remotely, or a technician can be called, without ever needing to visit the boiler room.
Heat-Timer® Mobile App
From a quality-of-life standpoint, the visibility the free mobile app provides, means that you don’t really have to get off the couch to work a problem. The Mobile App is designed to show building managers a bird’s eye view of their building portfolio and allow them to drill into any property instantly. Small
buildings using Heat-Timer Genesis™ can be viewed alongside larger buildings using our Heat-Timer® Platinum Series controls that are BuildingNet enabled.

We’ve talked about how our space sensors are completely wireless, but Genesis Heat-Timer ™ is also completely internet and mobile capable for remote monitoring and management. While the Genesis Heat-Timer ™ control features a local button-based interface and lcd screen, most users will quickly prefer the convenience of either our mobile app or our internet portal, which can make most trips to the boiler room a distant memory.
Many building management companies are already aware of the ease of monitoring and management our internet portal provides. With varying access and security levels, your team can see reports or make changes to your entire portfolio of buildings through a simple, intuitive, web-based interface.
By drilling down into various elements of key operational data, building managers have easy access to data that includes:
With Genesis Heat-Timer™ the smaller buildings in your management portfolio can be brought under the same management interface as larger buildings already using one of our Platinum Series Controls with BuildingNet. The internet portal is now like a building management system for heating across your entire portfolio of buildings.
With long range wireless sensors, an internet portal, and our mobile app, cutting your fuel costs has never been a coupled with a better improvement in your quality of life! Call Heat-Timer® today for more information.

One of the key features that sets Genesis Heat-Timer™ apart from other heating controls is the inclusion of pre-programmed wireless space sensors. The base product includes three space sensors but can connect to up to 5 for appropriate coverage of a typical small building of 20 units or less.
Installing the space sensors couldn’t be easier, simply mount them on the wall with the provided hardware in an apartment. The wireless sensors with their extended range, will report space temperatures directly to Genesis without need of repeaters or additional network hubs.
The space sensors perform a key role in the control of the heating system. By utilizing building temperature readings from all areas of the building along with the outside temperature, algorithms actually self-learn the heating characteristics of your building.
The best part for building owners is that the Genesis Heat-Timer™, utilizing its space sensors, is able to do this using the absolute minimum amount of fuel possible without sacrificing resident comfort. You can expect to save up to 30% on your fuel costs this winter, while maintaining a uniformity of building temperatures you never would have thought possible.
The Wireless Space Sensors last up to 10+ years before battery replacement is needed. Battery status for each sensor is viewable remotely through the internet portal as well.

For smaller apartment and office buildings having less than 20 units, justifying the expense of installing the industry leading boiler heating control system has sometimes been tough.
Don’t get us wrong, small building managers and owners want to save money on fuel costs every bit as much as the big guys, especially in the northern regions of the country. And given that modern heating controls like the Heat-Timer® Platinum series have been shown to save anywhere from 15% to 50% on monthly heating costs, you would think that installing the industry leading heating control in a small apartment building would be a no-brainer.
If only life were so simple. It turns out that for savvy small building managers, the problem is math. In general, building managers are looking for heating upgrades to pay for themselves in fuel savings within 2-3 years. If the cost of the upgrade is largely fixed, then the more money you save, the quicker the payback.
So let’s do the math. Let’s assume some heating upgrade we are considering that includes a new heating control system will cost 20K installed and we conservatively project a savings of 20% per month on our heating bills as a result. It stands to reason that the larger your fuel bills, the more money you will save each month.
Here’s a graph that tells the story. The original data is from a real 100 Unit apartment building in NYC.
So a building that uses an average of $54,000/yr of energy could be expected to save 20% or $11000 on energy costs in its first year, assuming all other things remain equal. Allowing for normal fluctuations in fuel costs and the changing severity of winters it’s pretty clear that payback for a heating control investment happens sometime late in year 1 or early in year 2, exactly the kind of math that large building owners like.
Smaller Apartment Building, Different Math
Now let’s look at that same investment in a small building complex of less that 25 units. Since overall heating costs are lower, you save fewer dollars each month at the same percentage savings (20%). It takes longer here, to recover that fixed up-front investment.
For some small building owners, even this extended payout is worth it. Possibly they are in a colder area of the country or have an older building that is not energy efficient and spend more on energy. Possibly their situation is such that a heating control like our Heat-Timer® Platinum Series with internet and wireless apartment sensors will save them even more than the 20% conservatively estimated here. Perhaps the installation is also being done to comply with local laws enacted to cut greenhouse gas emissions and so there is a compelling legal reason. They may also be entitled to rebates from a number of city and state incentives for installation of these kinds of heating upgrades which reduces or even eliminates the upfront investment. All these considerations would act to either make the ROI for small buildings much more of a “no-brainer” or make longer payback more tolerable.
Or perhaps these small building owners/managers are simply more forward looking and see that they are in this for the long haul and don’t mind the longer payback. We have seen some of the most successful building management companies in the country take this longer view as they standardize their entire building portfolio around Heat-Timer® products. They gain energy savings for sure, but they also achieve product and training standardization, as well as centralized, internet-based portfolio management system for all their buildings. A centralized real-time, view, centralized reporting, and centralized monitoring and control via cell phone or internet. That’s a massive management EZ-button for serious building management professionals.
The Final Word on Heating Controls for Small Apartment Buildings
There are many reasons that heating controls like the Heat-Timer® Platinum Series can be justified, and are cost effective for smaller buildings. But if none of these reasons work for you and you are still wholly focused on the cost of this upgrade, then either you won’t do it all, or you’ll look for a cheaper solution with smaller upfront costs. After all, that’s another way to recover the costs of an upgrade sooner if all other things are equal.
Putting this into graphical form again tells the story. If we cut the cost of installation in the small building from $20K up front to closer to $10K, and keep all other assumptions the same, then our small apartment graph looks much nicer!
The problem with simply buying a cheaper control with cheaper installation costs is that all other things are not equal. To put it simply, some of the low-cost commercial controls you are likely to consider, will not deliver. The yearly fuel savings they advertise may claim 25% or more. But if you achieve 25% reduction of heating costs in a building with a low-cost control, then it is likely you would have achieved 35% – 40% cost reduction with a Heat-Timer® control. The problem is that you will now become locked into a simpler, cheaper solution that without a doubt, will not deliver the resident comfort, management convenience, mobile control, and fuel cost reductions, that the world’s leading boiler control can deliver. And down the road when you realize this, you’ll be looking at another significant upgrade investment.
If only small building managers could get the class leading performance of a Heat-Timer® Platinum Series Internet Control in a lower cost package designed specifically for small apartment complexes.
The Genesis Heat-Timer™ – Designed for Small Building Managers
Spoiler alert: Heat-Timer® is proud to announce that your patience reading this long blog will be rewarded! It turns out that as of August 1st, 2022, a heating control designed specifically for small building owners of 20 units or less, will be available. Our new control, the Genesis Heat-Timer™, has the same industry leading, energy saving performance as our top of the line Platinum Series, and the same internet monitoring and wireless connectivity for up to 5 remote sensors. With this heating control, up-front equipment and installation costs are significantly reduced. Payback in most cases is within 1 – 2 years using conservative estimates of energy savings. Even faster now, given the high cost of fuel expected this winter.
Stay tuned to our website and social media for information on the next evolution of heating automation, the Genesis Heat-Timer™ .

US gas prices are at a record high. There is no one reason for this, it’s more like a perfect storm of global events that has conspired to drive down supply while at the same time increasing demand. Unfortunately, there is also a good chance that the price at the pump has not yet peaked. We are just entering the summer travel season which is expected to be very busy this year. People who missed out on vacations during the pandemic are eager to make up for lost time. For these and other reasons, experts say prices are going to go higher and stay high for quite some time. Those circumstances aren’t going to change any time soon and are likely to keep prices there for the rest of the year and beyond.
For commercial building owners, this will translate into higher fuel and electricity costs this summer and into winter, significantly higher. In anticipation of these fuel increases, smart building owners are taking a look at smarter solutions to building energy consumption. It’s way easier to justify the ROI on an equipment upgrade when the cost savings potential is now huge.
Consider the following chart of gas prices:
With average gas prices expected to top $5.00 a gallon nationally, that means a conservative estimate of average fuel price increases into the winter of 2022 vs. 2021 is $5.00 vs. $3.35 or almost a 50% increase in fuel bills.
The Time is NOW to Take Energy Saving Steps
There are a number of things commercial building managers can do to get ahead of winter heating bills, ranging from the very easy and relatively cheap, and the very costly wholesale replacement of old equipment. The good news is that whatever you decide to do, the cost of it will be way easier to justify based on the dollars you’ll save this winter. Since we’re just coming into summer, the timing is perfect for the forward-thinking building manager to do upgrades to heating systems.
Here’s some ideas to consider, starting with the simplest to the most comprehensive.
There are many other elements large and small that can make incremental improvements to your Heating system efficiency, all dependent on the particular configuration of your building. Again, an inspection by a qualified professional and the installation of a high quality heating control is always a great place to start.

As a leader in the sales and installation of heating controls for all kinds of commercial buildings, we’ve heard a lot of stories from the HVAC technicians and building managers who have installed our equipment over the years. It’s easy to get caught up in the technology aspects of heating, and most building management folks are focused on the money they will save when they have a “Heat-Timer®” running their boilers. Sometimes however, we forget that all different kinds of folks are living in these apartments and co-op buildings and people experience hot and cold in different ways. You can’t solve a problem of heating efficiency and cost reduction, without solving the human problem at the same time.
A recent install at a 100 unit NYC Co-Op hi-rise, is a perfect example. Most of the residents were retired, elderly and long-time occupants of the building. This older group of residents completely controlled the Co-Op board, and dictated most of the major decisions in the building. Understandably, the elderly experience hot and cold much differently than younger folks.
The heating cycle during winter, prior to a Heat-Timer® installation, went something like this: Maude Wilson in 11B is a spirited 92 years young, president of the Co-Op board, and can’t figure out why turning up her thermostat on this cold day doesn’t seem to be doing anything in her apartment. The concepts of shared steam delivery and centralized boiler heating are largely lost on her of course. Maude calls down to Louis, the long-time building superintendent, asking what is wrong and why her apartment is “Freezing.” Louis, who has known Maude a long time and who is a super nice super, obliges Maude and cranks up the boiler in the boiler room. Maude goes quiet but several hours later the resident in 12C, Mike Jones, who is only 50 and a karate instructor calls down to Louis to ask why his thermostat isn’t working and the temperature in his apartment is 78 degrees! Louis, who has known Mike a long time and who is a super nice super, obliges Mike and cranks down the boiler in the boiler room. He also begins counting the days until spring.
You get the picture…
Not only is Louis’ well-intentioned manipulation of the boiler wasting an incredible amount of energy every winter, but at the end of the day, the residents aren’t any happier with the temperature in their apartments. Poor Louis lives in fear of those late night calls which have him trudging back to the boiler room trying to address the latest resident complaint.
Heat-Timer Platinum Series with Internet – Managing both Temperatures and Residents
It turns out that our friends in the Co-Op managed to solve both their excessive heating bills, and their resident complaint problems with a little help from a Heat-Timer® Internet Enabled Platinum Control with wireless apartment sensors. Even Louis is getting better sleep now as he monitors all building temperatures remotely, from our Mobile app on his cell phone. If he needs to make an adjustment, he can do it from his cell phone or the internet portal. Maude is still prone to complaining but when confronted with reports and graphical data from our wireless remote sensors to show that the temperature in her apartment is actually a perfect 72 degrees, she is now resigned to putting on a sweater in the interests of the greater good. Her willingness to compromise was made even easier after she saw that the Co-Op was saving tens of thousands of dollars a year on the heating bill!
Saving thousands of dollars on your yearly heating bills is a given with Heat-Timer®. What building managers need to realize also however, is that by using data from our wireless remote sensors and reports easily produced through our web portal, your residents can be presented with irrefutable data on both cost savings and comfort. The combination is powerful and over time, wins over all naysayers.
It’s a story we’ve heard in some form, many times. Call us today to see how Heat-Timer® can help you with the politics of temperature inside of your building. https://www.heat-timer.com/

At Oklahoma University, the drive for excellence has a long and proud tradition both in the classroom and on the football field. Lesser known however, is the university’s constant drive toward excellence and efficiency in its building operations. That’s why during a recent retrofit of its domestic hot water equipment, UA selected the Heat-Timer® ETS (Electronic Tempering Station) as its choice for master mixing and control.
With over 30,000 students on campus, Oklahoma University has multiple on-campus dorms including the twin 12 story buildings of the Couch and Walker Centers. These buildings are a focal point of student housing located in the center of the campus. As is common in high rise dormitories, the domestic hot water system includes steam to water exchangers and a master mixing valve.
UA Facilities Team Confronts A Hot Problem
Over the years the domestic hot water system in these (and other) buildings at OU, have required costly maintenance and repairs while still not providing the consistent hot water delivery required for safe use.
“The prior mixing valves were requiring a significant amount of maintenance,” notes Casey Yost of Federal Corporation out of Oklahoma city, who spearheaded the Heat-Timer® solution. “They were having to rebuild and replace the thermostatic mixers regularly, and the control head of the original package was failing.”
This was of course, causing all kinds of uncontrolled temperature variation in the water supply as well as a phenomenon known as temperature creep. This happens overnight under low or no demand conditions where the domestic water loop could reach as high as 160F and create a scalding hazard for the first, early morning student users. To combat this issue the University maintenance department had to continually rebuild and replace the thermostatic mixers, resulting in huge maintenance expenses.
Heat-Timer Rebuilds the Domestic Hot Water Solution Digitally.
In this domestic hot water system rehabilitation, there were basically two main goals set by the University. The first was to replace the existing thermostatic mixers with newer digital mixing valves that provide the accuracy needed. The second goal was to limit the down time of the installation and have hot water service back to the students as quickly as possible. At the recommendation of Casey, OU decided to replace its unreliable tube bundles with the Heat-Timer® Electronic Tempering Station (ETS)
The Heat-Timer® ETS product introduced in 2020, was a game changer for commercial plumbers in domestic hot water applications. Essentially the ETS encapsulates our industry standard Electronic Tempering Valve (ETV) system which has been a class leading DHW solution for many years with a strong track record in multi-family apartment buildings, hotels, elderly living facilities and college dorm applications. The ETV is a computer tied to our motorized 3-way mixing valve and sensors. Using proven software algorithms to control the mix, our solution delivers an exact, preset hot water temperature to the user, under any and all conditions. The ETV is able to perfectly detect and control the hot water supply temperature to a distribution line.
The ETS assembly is a floor mounted unit that does not require valuable wall space that is difficult to find in most mechanical rooms. The ETS assembly provides the installer the near valve piping configuration, and required fittings such as isolation valves, check valves and Victaulic couplings. The ETS assembly also includes a high-temp limit valve that provides protection against delivery of extreme high temperature domestic hot water to the building in the event of a system failure. The ETV mixing valve actuator, control module and 3 temperatures sensors are included in the ETS assembly and are pre-wired for the installer.
Results of the Domestic Hot Water Retrofit at Oklahoma University
The initial project was for a 12 story dormitory building and the complete removal and installation of the ETS was done in less than a day. Here’s what water temperatures looked like before and after:
The result of having the ETS in place is shown on the computer screen above measuring the mixed water temperature going out to the system. The graph on the left of the screen was the “before”, the huge dip was the system installation, and the flat line is the “after” with the ETS on-line.
“The big take away here is we were able to replace the tube bundles and add the ETS to create an almost completely new domestic hot water system for half the cost of replacing the original package,” notes Casey. This is the first of 2 ETS units sent to OU. Based on the installation time and performance, there is an opportunity for many more to come.
But perhaps Oklahoma University’s Facility Maintenance Manager said it best: “I wouldn’t have believed how simple it was to install and how consistent our temperatures are if I hadn’t seen it for myself.”
You won’t believe it either. Call Heat-Timer® Today for all your questions about our Domestic Hot Water Control solutions.

Summer is a great time to maintain or upgrade the steam or hydronic heating system in your building or apartment complex. The system can be offline for days now, without angry calls from residents! The boiler room is quiet, most pipes and valves are not burn hazards, and the boiler room temperature is not pushing 140 °F.
Time spent in your boiler room now doing preventive maintenance and making some smart system upgrades will reduce your energy costs, and will keep you out of the boiler room at 3:00 AM during the upcoming heating season.
Here are five suggestions for summer preventive maintenance on your commercial boiler equipment:
1. Start with a good cleaning
A dark, dirty, and cluttered boiler room is a boiler room filled with potential problems that you can’t see. Start your summer heating system maintenance with a good cleaning. Remove anything stored in the room that is not needed for boiler operation, replace any burned out bulbs, and consider upgrading the lighting to make maintenance easier. Finally, clean the floor and vacuum out the cobwebs and dust from the equipment. While you are cleaning in those dusty corners, look around. Now that the place is clean, you can see those potential problems.
2. Give the system a thorough inspection
Look for water stains on the floor, rust on pumps or valves, droopy pipe insulation, and for damaged sensors or valve controls. These are all signs of pending failures. For steam systems, also inspect the main line air vents. Again, look for water stains and evidence of leaking.
Outside the boiler room walk the building, check radiators and make sure the steam radiator air vents have not been painted over or otherwise abused. If you have installed remote wireless sensors, like the Heat-Timer Wireless Sensor system, this is a good time to look into your control portal to see if any sensor in your building needs new batteries.
If you don’t have a heating control and an associated network of wireless sensors monitoring your building and critical heating system functions, maybe this is the summer to install it. A Heat-Timer® Platinum series heating controller can monitor a network of wireless sensors and give you instant information about your building’s health and the operation of valves and boilers in your system. These sensors include room sensors that provide real time information on the hot and cold areas of your building, allowing the self-learning algorithm’s in our control to keep temperatures stable without overdriving your boiler unnecessarily.
In addition to wireless building sensors, our control provides internet and mobile app based alarms and monitoring. From the comfort of your home, a building manager can see reports on energy usage, critical temperatures and can set or tweak all parameters associated with the efficient heating of the building. This data is available anywhere via an internet connection or on your cell phone.
3. Too hot for you? – It may be time to insulate those pipes
If the pipes in your boiler room are uninsulated, or the insulation is damaged or missing, steam or hot water that is supposed to be heating your building is instead turning your boiler room into a sauna. Summer is the perfect time to insulate any exposed pipes and valves since they are all at a safe temperature. There are three major advantages to insulating the system heating pipes and valves:
4. Clean and inspect the boiler
The boiler is the heart of the heating system. When properly maintained, it will provide heat reliably for decades. Neglect maintenance and it can fail in many sudden and expensive ways.
Summer gives you the time to drain the boiler so that both the fireside and waterside of the boiler can be cleaned and inspected. A qualified technician should inspect and clean the burner and should also inspect, and if necessary replace, the three most critical safety systems on the boiler.
Failures in any of these systems can result in a boiler shut down or even boiler damage.
If you have decided to install remote sensors this summer, the boiler is another place where sensors integrated with a Heat-Timer Platinum Heating controller can warn you of boiler problems before they become serious.
5. Upgrade your controls
Finally, while the technician is servicing your boiler, why not ask them whether it is time to consider upgrading the boiler controls? If your boiler controls are more than 10 years old, you will benefit from the advances in self learning controls and internet connectivity provided by controls like the Heat-Timer® platinum series.
For example, the Heat Timer® Platinum series controls come with outdoor reset and self-learning software that continuously optimizes the heating cycle for your building and climate. This reduces heating costs, while the system’s internet communication option will allow you to monitor and manage your heating system from anywhere. The Heat-Timer® Platinum interfaces with a variety of wired and wireless sensors, giving you a complete picture of how the heating system is performing, and all the hot and cold spots in your building.
Summer is Hot, for Heating Controls
Don’t wait until things cool off to start thinking of heating. This summer, think about these five tips to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your commercial heating system is not going to give you a headache this winter.

What is a Smart Building
As we all strive to be more energy efficient and environmentally friendly, commercial buildings are under pressure to use more sustainable HVAC control systems that reduce impact on the environment, eliminate excess energy usage, and provide a comfortable environment for everyone in the building. You may have heard the phrases “connected building” or “smart building”, so what do these phrases mean and what qualifies a commercial building as being “smart”?
In a smart building, the various systems like lighting, heating, air-conditioning, ventilation, and security systems are integrated into a single system, and can be operated and monitored via the internet. Imagine a command center from which you can see every component of an office building – this is what a smart building is. The main control system enables each system to work together, gather real-time data, share information with other systems, increase efficiency, and enhance performance. Smart buildings are ideal for office managers and building managers who want to streamline their control systems and enhance management efficiency, because smart buildings use data and analytics to automatically adjust the performance of one or all systems.
Heat-Timer® Platinum Series products are actually a perfect fit for your smart building. You can think of them as a subcontractor for all your heating control needs, providing data, alarms, and control points for the boilers and domestic hot water of your smart building. They can operate standalone, or can interface to your full building management system (BMS) through industry standard interfaces such as Bacnet and ModBus. Even if you’re not ready for a full smart building conversion yet, a Heat-Timer® control can save you money on energy starting today, while road-mapping perfectly into any BMS you may implement in the future.
Benefits of a smart system for commercial buildings:
Smart Heating Control Systems are a key Money Saver in Your Smart Building
Converting your building into a smart building doesn’t necessarily mean you need to invest in expensive equipment or replace any of your existing systems. You can take the first step by considering small upgrades to each of the major systems.
For your heating systems, an upgrade to a Heat-Timer® platinum boiler control is simple because almost everything is wireless and internet based. There are even rebate programs that may be available through your utility company, making the payback on your upfront investment even faster.
