As a small business owner, you know how important it is to ensure you maximize each dollar spent. Saving money is probably a big priority, too. Look no further than the energy usage. Why? Saving energy means saving money. Here are some energy saving tips to keep in mind.
#1: Schedule yearly maintenance.
All business owners should schedule professional maintenance on their HVAC systems, ductless heat pumps, or gas furnaces. We recommend annual tune ups. We’ll clean the air filters, inspect all internal electrical parts and components, and run an energy efficiency check. This ensures everything is operating as it should. If we notice anything out of order or something that needs repair, we’ll discuss that and get things repaired as quickly as possible. A machine that runs at peak efficiency uses less energy.
#2: Examine how much energy your small business uses.
Do you know how much energy is used every week or month in your commercial building, office, or small business? Do an audit of your energy usage. This gives you a clear picture of what you’re using and will help you find ways you can cut back.
#3: Don’t fluctuate your thermostat.
If you keep adjusting your thermostat up or down, you will use more energy. So, find the right temperature and stick to it. A fluctuating thermostat not only uses more energy, but it also strains your heating and cooling system.
#4: Replace your old system.
If your small business or commercial building is operating with a heating or cooling system that’s more than 15 years old, it probably isn’t as energy efficient as it could be. Today’s systems are EnergyStar® rated and reliable. So, whether you need multiple units for your commercial or industrial building or need just a simple replacement of a gas furnace for a small office building, our team of experts at Specialty Heating and Cooling will find the right option within your budget.
