5 WAYS YOUR BUSINESS CAN SAVE IN HVAC UTILITY COSTS
A sudden HVAC repair can be incredibly disruptive and expensive for your business. By employing a preventative maintenance provider you can many times catch failing equipment before it gives out. For retail businesses, a faulty HVAC system during prime shopping hours can mean thousands in lost revenue. A leaking HVAC unit can even damage merchandise or cause liability issues. With a set preventative maintenance schedule you’ll avoid being blindsided by sudden catastrophic HVAC failure. Busy business owners will appreciate the fact that you can set your preventative maintenance to whatever schedule works for you.
REGULAR HVAC SERVICE:
The efficiency and lifetime of your commercial HVAC system will depend on your service schedule. Like the oil in your car your HVAC system will require continuous service even after installation. One of the most efficient tasks your service provider can do is cleaning or replacing worn air filters. By simply changing filters every 2-3 months you’ll see a drop in HVAC costs, better air circulation, and even cleaner air. The many benefits of reduced utility costs, better air quality, and reduced repair costs will make commercial HVAC service a worthwhile investment.
UPDATED HVAC SYSTEM:
Patchwork repairs of an old HVAC system will eventually get more expensive than just upgrading into a newer, more efficient one. If you are moving headquarters into a new building or even renovating your current one a new system is a good option. Innovations and new technology in the HVAC industry have made current systems more cost effective and environmentally friendly than ever before. A new system will let you take advantage of commercial HVAC design and installation practices that can be customized for your unique needs.
AUTOMATED TEMPERATURE CONTROL:
Building Automation Systems are mainly used in commercial HVAC control systems and energy management system applications. By automating your HVAC system you can optimize the energy you use for when you need it. This can mean a lower AC setting during colder days, or even reduced heating in warmer times of the day. You can even set your system to adjust to times where the office or business is largely empty. Such automated systems can make your business a lot more comfortable for your employees and save you money in the long run.
PREVENT AIR LEAKAGE:
If you are suddenly experiencing increased energy costs, hard to cool or heat rooms, or dust coming from the vents after turning on the unit you might have leaking air ducts. A leak in your system can be costly as your cool or heated air is lost to the outside. In older HVAC systems it is especially important to check for air leakage as it is more common. Sealing air leaks will lead to improved air quality, building ventilation, and energy consumption.
