Heating and cooling is not just a luxury. It’s a necessity. Here’s why.
Back in the old days, businesses would open windows, run fans, and sit out on the stoop to beat the heat. These days, you need more than just some shade and some lemonade to beat the heat in the summer, and more than just a wood stove and an extra layer in the winter. Heating and cooling are essential.
Here are 3 lifesaving tips about commercial heating and cooling:
Tip #1: Know the Dangers of Overheating
When you run a business, you need to provide a safe environment for your customers and for your employees with effective commercial heating and cooling. Overheating, even inside, is a genuine safety concern. Some of the danger signs of overexposure to heat include cramping, confusion, dizziness, fatigue, headache, nausea, and fainting. Keeping your business cool isn’t just a luxury. When it comes to overheating, it’s a safety issue.
Tip #2: Know the Dangers of Compensating When It’s Cold
Cold exposure in the winter months isn’t as much of a threat inside a business as heat can be. However, there are still risks in the winter of not having effective commercial heating. One of the biggest threats is malfunctioning systems that allow deadly carbon monoxide into your business. Another big risk is using space heaters to compensate for a heating system that can’t keep up with demand. Space heaters are a huge fire hazard, not to mention an energy suck.
Tip #3: Get the Right Commercial Heating and Cooling for Your Business
Getting the right system for your business makes all the difference in the world. A system that is too small will struggle to keep up with your heating and cooling demands; a system that is too big will waste money and energy. Have a commercial heating and cooling contractor come and give you an estimate for the size and type of system you really need to keep your employees and your customers comfortable and safe.
