How to save on heating and cooling costs

Keeping your business cool in the summer and warm in the winter while remaining efficient is easy with these tips below.

Energy-Saving HVAC Tips

  • Change or clean air filters every month.
  • Clean all heat exchanger surfaces, refrigerant and water coils, condensers and evaporators.
  • Use fans since they reduce the need for air conditioning.
  • If possible, ensure economizer mode is operating properly.
  • Install a programmable thermostat to automate your HVAC system.
  • Plug leaks with weather stripping and caulking.
  • Replace air conditioning units of 5.4 tons or less with units with a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) of 14.0 or more. For air conditioning units equal to greater than 5.4 ton, replace with units with a high energy efficiency ratio of 10.2 or more. You’ll reduce operating costs for the life of the unit.
  • Use shades and blinds to control direct sun through windows in both summer and winter to prevent or encourage heat gain.
  • Make sure that areas in front of vents are clear since you can use 25 percent more energy to distribute air if your vents are blocked.
