Businesses have a variety of costs associated with keeping their business running successfully and saving money is likely at the forefront of any good business person’s business model. Did you know that saving energy is not only great for the environment but it will also save you money? Here are some tips on how to save energy in your commercial building.
Tip #1: Monitor usage.
How much energy does your commercial space use? Monitor your commercial building’s energy use closely by checking and updating its energy consumption on a regular basis. This will not only let you know how much you’re using but it will ensure that you’re not using excessive amounts of energy.
Tip #2: Monitor heating and cooling temperatures.
This can make a big difference on your energy bills. If it isn’t necessary to heat or cool your building all day and night to keep employees comfortable, consider setting the thermostat to the “save” or “auto” function during the non-business hours.
Tip #3: Keep your HVAC system maintained.
An HVAC system that is not regularly tuned up could be using excess energy and causing your utility bill to increase. Make sure you contact our experienced team of HVAC technicians for routine annual service appointments. During these appointments, we will clean filters, look closely at all of the components of your HVAC system and be sure that all electrical connections are secure and that there are no parts that need to be replaced. With a properly working machine, you’ll reduce your energy consumption and reduce your risk for unnecessary breakdowns when you need the system the most.
Tip #4: Replace your HVAC system.
If your HVAC system is out of date and it has been repaired more times than you can count, it may be time for you to replace it. A new system will be energy efficient, save energy, and will serve as a reliable heating and cooling source for many years to come. Our team of professionals can help you determine which system is right for your commercial building’s layout, and we will also work with your budget guidelines. Contact us today for a free quote!
