With hot weather coming, saving on energy costs can be a challenge.
Making a business energy efficient can present challenges that you wouldn’t experience in your home. Most businesses are located in much larger spaces than a typical home. Businesses also have to think about the comfort of a wide range of employees and clients or customers. Not to worry, Action Air has some great advice on keeping everyone comfortable, while reducing your energy use over the summer!
Tune up your HVAC system on a regular basis. This will ensure maximum performance and add years to the life of your equipment.
Change your filters regularly as recommended by the manufacturer.
Treat your Windows
Consider using blinds, awnings, solar film on windows, and natural vegetation to manage heat and light. Let light and heat in during the winter and keep it out during the summer.
Keep Air Moving
Use fans to keep air moving and maintain a comfortable level of humidity.
Use weather stripping and caulking to seal any areas where air may be escaping. You will then be able to better manage your ventilation and keep the air that has been cooled (or heated) inside.
During summer months, adjusting your thermostat up one degree typically can save 2-3% on cooling costs. Adjust thermostats higher when cooling and lower when heating unoccupied areas within a building (e.g. during weekends and non-working hours).
Prevent Thermostat Changes
Consider installing locking devices on thermostats to maintain ideal temperature settings.
