As a business owner, you’re already aware that every dollar that leaves your company matters. While some monthly expenses are unavoidable, improving your business’ commercial HVAC efficiency is one way to save money. Here are some things you can do to make sure you’re not wasting money on unnecessarily high utility bills.
Make Sure Your HVAC Filters Are Clean
This is one of the most important yet most often ignored steps to maximizing HVAC efficiency. The air filters in your system are responsible for filtering out dust and other particulates, making the air safe for you, your employees and clients to breathe. However, they also have an impact on efficiency.
When the air filter becomes filled with dirt and particulates, your system has to work harder to push air through. Systems that work harder are less efficient and lead to higher monthly utility bills.
Resolve Problems Quickly
Ignoring HVAC issues that appear minor is a surefire way to decrease your system’s efficiency. Not only that, but it also opens up your system to the possibility of more serious issues. The minute that you notice strange noises, lack of effectiveness and other HVAC warning signs, you should call an HVAC company to have the issue diagnosed and malfunctioning parts repaired quickly.
Install an Economizer to Help Your HVAC
Usually found on the roof of a commercial building, economizers detect the right level of outside air to bring inside, based on its temperature and humidity level. The economizer then uses this outside air to either heat or cool your building, which increases the efficiency of your existing HVAC system. These devices are easy for a technician to install and also improve indoor air quality.
Schedule Regular Maintenance
Business owners understand the importance of being proactive, and that certainly applies to your heating and cooling system. Investing in regular, professional HVAC maintenance means that a licensed service technician will inspect your HVAC system and identify parts beginning to show signs of wear and tear, which can diminish your system’s efficiency.
