Commercial services have different requirements for their buildings, so energy costs are typically higher compared to residential homes. With some estimates stating that up to 40% of commercial energy usage is in the HVAC system alone, there’s a great incentive to reduce energy costs wherever possible.
If you have an older commercial HVAC system, replacing it with a newer model may have cost-effective benefits over time in energy costs.
Here are a few ways that commercial services can benefit from replacing an older HVAC system:
If your HVAC system is old and does not have the Energy Star rating, it’s likely that you’re spending more on energy costs than if you had a new system with the Energy Star rating.
If you came into your commercial building with the HVAC system already installed, but the system was not sized correctly to begin with, you may have been spending more on energy than you realize. Getting a newer unit that is sized correctly for your building can translate into significant yearly savings.
If you have an older system that basically functions with an on and off switch, you might consider newer systems that allow for more control over different zones. There may be a portion of your building that doesn’t need as much temperature control. Having more control over different zones in your building can give you more command over your total energy costs.
Newer models come with more customization options and energy reducing technologies. If you have an older HVAC system with a manufactured date before Bill Clinton was president, it’s probably time to upgrade.
