Has your company signed up for any HVAC maintenance agreements yet? If not, what’s holding you back? Saving your business money is always a good thing. But if your office HVAC system is inefficient, you may end up with a hefty energy bill each month. Here’s how you can reduce your energy consumption and keep your books in the black.
1. Stop Relying on an Outdated Thermostat
How old is your office thermostat? Unless you recently installed it, you probably don’t know the answer to that question. However, an outdated thermostat could cost your company a small fortune each year. Upgrading to smart thermostats is one way to reduce your energy usage. Remote programming makes it possible to control your HVAC system from anywhere. Long gone are the days of heating the entire office while the staff is on vacation.
2. Get Rid of Poor Office Insulation
If you notice everyone in the office wearing a sweater or jacket at their desk, the environment might be too cold. Poor insulation may be to blame. Even if you run the heater, if you don’t update the insulation, a significant amount of the hot air will escape. Upgrading your insulation will help keep the warm air inside where you want it.
3. Upgrade that Geriatric HVAC System
Every HVAC system has a limited lifespan. Most units can last for 15-25 years before buying a replacement is imminent. As your system ages, it may become inefficient, and you’ll notice an increase in your electric bill. Regular maintenance is the best way to catch and repair small problems so that you can reduce your energy consumption.
