Can commercial services help me make my small business HVAC more efficient?
As a small business owner, you rely on commercial services, but you’re also budget-minded. You need your heating system to be functional, but you also want it to be efficient.
Here are 3 steps to improve the efficiency of your small business HVAC:
Step 1: Reduce the Load Capacity
Load capacity is how much heat a building uses. Reducing load capacity makes it easier for your heating system to do its job. Things that can help include upgrading your insulation to keep the heat inside where it belongs, improving and controlling ventilation and installing higher energy efficient windows.
Step 2: Upgrade Outdated Equipment
If the heating equipment in your building is old and outdated, it’s going to be using significantly more energy than upgraded, energy efficient units. If your equipment is more than 10 years old it’s time to consider replacing it. The money you’ll save in energy use over time will make up for the cost.
Step 3: Invest in Regular Maintenance
One of the biggest factors in the efficiency of your HVAC system is maintenance. Regular maintenance will help ensure the unit is running smoothly, that any parts that are worn or malfunctioning are replaced, that the components are cleaned and inspected, and that the heating system is running at peak performance. When your heating system is running right, it’s going to run at its most efficient.
When you’re busy running your small business, you do everything you can to watch the bottom line, and that includes watching out for your energy efficiency.
