You’ve poured your time and energy into your Conway, Arkansas, business. You’ve worked hard to turn it into a commercial enterprise that’s profitable for you. You’ve found ways to maximize your efforts while reducing overhead, but you might be missing one huge element: your heating and air conditioning unit. Here are three tips on how to lower your commercial HVAC costs.
Repair or Replace Your Ductwork
Over time, the ductwork in your workplace may split and crack where it joins or turns, and these cracks can lead to energy waste. By regularly repairing your ductwork and having it inspected by a professional HVAC technician, you can help to prevent your HVAC equipment from becoming overworked.
Additionally, the benefits of sealing your ductwork could include:
Indoor air quality.
Control Temperature Zones
Not every room in your building has the same needs for cooling and heating. Have your HVAC technician evaluate and map your office’s zones, and install thermostats that can give you more precise control over specific areas in your building. By more precisely scheduling and controlling your system, you can prevent energy from being wasted and having your HVAC work overtime.
Creating HVAC zones within your office building can also help to improve your overall energy efficiency and reduce the amount of hot and cold spots within your office. Your HVAC technician can adjust your system to make up for temperature differences that may be present due to the unique features of your office building.
Replace Old HVAC Equipment
The older your HVAC equipment is, the more energy it consumes. Your ancient HVAC unit could be costing you thousands of dollars in hidden expenses. If you upgrade your equipment to a more energy-efficient model, you could save money on energy costs. Those units with Energy Star ratings use less energy, which will save your wallet.
