While energy efficiency is important throughout the year, it is especially crucial for commercial spaces during the winter months. Because energy bills can quickly grow as you heat your space, it is crucial to keep your commercial space energy efficient during the coldest months of the year. As you heat your commercial space this winter, consider these four easy tips for avoiding steep energy bills and keeping your office energy efficient this year.
Change Your Air Filters
Changing your air filters is a crucial step before using your heater daily for the season. A clogged air filter will cause your HVAC system to work harder than usual, which could, in turn, cause your energy bills to rise. Plan to change your filters approximately four times a year between seasons. If there is an exceptional amount of dust in your workplace, consider changing your filters more often.
Stick to a Maintenance Schedule
Maintenance is essential for keeping your commercial HVAC in excellent condition throughout the year. An improperly maintained commercial heating system will not run at peak efficiency,
leaving you to pay more on your energy bills and a potential replacement! To ensure that your HVAC system is running with optimal energy efficiency, be sure to develop a regular maintenance schedule for your system.
Ensure that Necessary Repairs are Made
While it may sound obvious, it is crucial to repair any part of your heating system that is not working properly. Even with a smart thermostat schedule, a broken HVAC system will never be completely energy efficient. Call a maintenance technician to check for equipment, such as part cleanings and replacement. This step will also prevent dangerous conditions such as carbon monoxide leaks, from presenting a threat to your building.
Create a Schedule for Your Thermostats
Along with your seasonal maintenance, it is also crucial to ensure that your thermostats are calibrated. In matching your thermostats, you can ensure that your HVAC system will be energy efficient. With this, it is also important to program them carefully according to building activity in your commercial space. This will allow your heat to run only when the building is occupied, such as throughout the day only during business hours.
