As a business owner, you know that there are multiple costs associated with keeping your company running smoothly and successfully. Is saving money on the top of your priority list? Saved energy translates to saved money! So, here are some energy savings tips for your commercial building.
#1: Know how much energy your space uses.
When was the last time you checked how much energy your space uses on a weekly or monthly basis? Monitor this regularly. This gives you a clear picture of what you’re using and where you can cut back.
#2: Don’t neglect professional maintenance.
Putting off professional HVAC tune-ups and maintenance could increase your risk for a system breakdown. It is also uses more energy and increases utility bills. Routine annual service appointments give you the peace of mind you need. We’ll clean filters and ensure all internal electrical parts and other components of the system work properly. If we see anything that is broken or may break down later, we’ll go over that with you. A machine that’s running at maximum efficiency means enhanced energy savings for you.
#3: Find the right temperature and stick to it.
Changing the temperature on your thermostat consistently uses more energy and puts additional strain on your heating and cooling system. Also, make sure you don’t use your system in excess unless you need to. For example, if you don’t need to keep the area heated or cooled all day and night, consider setting the thermostat to ‘auto’ or save’ during off-hours.
#4: Upgrade your old system.
If your commercial system is more than 15 years old, chances are it is sucking valuable energy and needs to be replaced. A new system is energy efficient and reliable. Our team of experts at Specialty Heating and Cooling will provide options for you within your budget.
