An efficient heating and cooling system helps ensure the occupants of your building stay comfortable. The ambiance and temperature your business maintains can also be among the things that attract customers. However, you need to be mindful of how you use your HVAC system to prevent an increase in energy costs.
The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) says that you can save up to 50 percent on your energy bills with proper installation, sizing and maintenance of your HVAC system. Here are ways to avoid overpaying for your business’ heating and cooling from a trusted AC repair expert.
Regularly maintain your HVAC system. With regular maintenance, your HVAC system is more likely to run at optimal efficiency. It can also help you avoid costly repairs and early unit failure. Keep in mind that even high-end HVAC products still require regular upkeep to perform well and last longer.
Maintaining your HVAC system isn’t just about replacing filters: air duct cleaning may also be necessary. Dust and debris can settle in the ducts, which over time can clog the system. Make sure a professional checks your HVAC system before the heating and cooling seasons start. Routine inspections can help detect and address minor issues before they start affecting the system’s performance.
Make sure your building is well-insulated. With insufficient insulation and a leaking roof and walls, conditioned air will escape your building. When not addressed, poor insulation will cause your HVAC system to work harder than it should to reach your desired temperature. This results in higher heating and cooling costs. Proper insulation can significantly lower your energy bill and make your interior more comfortable.
