Commercial services can help you lower your building cooling costs this summer.
Are you connected with your commercial services teams? If not, you should be. According to an EPA study, the average commercial building wastes 30% of the energy it consumes. As a business owner, you see that reflected in higher monthly energy bills. Here are four tips on how regular maintenance by a commercial HVAC team can help you lower your summer cooling costs.
With programmable thermostats, you can automatically adjust the temperature to the needs of employees during working hours. At night, when the building is empty, increase the temperature by just a few degrees. This small change can save your business thousands of dollars in energy costs per year.
Most people today are energy conscious. Educate your employees on the benefits of turning off computers, printers, lights, and other devices when not in use. Show how this equipment really brings up the heat in the workplace. Perhaps provide an incentive to lower energy costs over the summer.
Conduct an energy audit by evaluating your heating and cooling costs and repairs over the past 12 months. Is your HVAC equipment outdated? Older units are not as efficient. Damage and wear & tear affect the output of both heating and cooling units. Consider upgrades as newer HVAC systems are much more energy efficient and may save you considerable money in a short time.
Regular service and maintenance are critical to the proper operation of commercial HVAC systems. Be sure to have your system maintained by a professional technician twice a year to prevent small, easy to fix problems from becoming costly repairs.
