4 Top Ways to Lower Your Commercial HVAC Costs

You’ve invested time and money into the growth of your Evans, Georgia, business. As a business owner, you always want to identify ways to maximize operating efficiency and keep expenses in check. Heating and cooling expenses are one of the largest monthly costs for a business. Replacing inefficient HVAC equipment and scheduling HVAC system maintenance are among the ways you can lower your commercial HVAC costs.

Replace Inefficient HVAC Equipment

Commercial HVAC manufacturers continue to introduce new features and innovations in HVAC equipment. If your HVAC system is 10 years old or older, it won’t be able to operate as efficiently as a new system. Look for HVAC units with the Energy Star logo or a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) value of 16 or higher. While getting a new system will involve HVAC installation costs and an initial investment, a new system will pay for itself in energy savings over time.

Schedule a Tune-Up

Even with up-to-date HVAC equipment, you can’t ignore regular maintenance. Regular tune-ups keep your system operating smoothly, help you avoid costly repairs, and can enable you to identify problems that could later impact your HVAC system’s performance. Schedule HVAC system tune-ups at least twice a year. A consistent maintenance schedule can go a long way toward increasing your HVAC system’s lifespan.

Improve Your Building’s Insulation

A well-insulated building can help your HVAC system function more efficiently. Installing energy-efficient windows, replacing old insulation, and sealing gaps around doors and window openings can all improve your HVAC system’s operations.

Establish Consistent Thermostat Settings

If thermostat debates happen all too frequently in the office, establish guidelines for thermostat settings. To maximize energy savings, set your thermostat to 78 degrees during the summer and 68 degrees during the winter.
