The dog days of summer are fast approaching, which means it is time to schedule commercial services for your business’s HVAC system. As the temperature starts to rise, so does your company’s cooling costs. According to the Energy Star Program run by the EPA, small businesses spend roughly $60 billion each year on energy costs. Statistics also show that energy costs rank in the top three for business-related expenses.
To prevent your energy costs from ranking in that dreaded top three, it is time to unlock your business’s energy-saving potential. Here are three HVAC products your business needs this summer to help you achieve your energy-saving goals:
Changing the air filter in your HVAC system is a simple, inexpensive task that will help you save money on energy costs this summer. Unfortunately, many consumers in both retail and residential locations overlook this simple upgrade. All HVAC systems use some filter or screen to prevent airborne particles from clogging up sensitive equipment. If you defer changing your system’s filter this summer, you might wind up with an overworked and inefficient unit. An improperly functioning HVAC system wreaks havoc on your energy costs, especially if you’re in a warm climate.
Smart thermostats are a popular choice for many business owners. These thermostats allow you to connect to the internet and control your system from your smartphone. By managing your HVAC temperature settings when you’re not there, you will save money in energy costs this summer and go a long way in reaching your energy-saving goals.
This technology works in the same way as motion-sensor lights. When a person or group walks into a space, your HVAC system starts to run. Motion-sensor cooling is perfect for large commercial locations when no one occupies the building during off hours. Using this technology also helps your business save money by cutting down on the energy you use in rooms that you and your employees rarely enter.
