Improve Your HVAC System's Efficiency And Performance

Your business needs a commercial HVAC system that functions efficiently and effectively. A well-performing HVAC system saves money on energy costs and ensures a comfortable working environment for employees. Yet, business owners may not take the necessary steps to maximize the performance of their systems. 

Tip: Schedule Regular Maintenance Checks To Ensure Your System Is Running Smoothly And Efficiently

An aspect of maintaining an efficient commercial HVAC system is scheduling regular maintenance checks with a licensed technician. Regular maintenance can help prevent major repairs resulting from minor issues being allowed to worsen. During maintenance visits, technicians may inspect refrigerant leaks, which could lead to inefficient cooling or potential damage to your unit if left untreated. Additionally, they may change filters to keep the airflow clean and efficient while also cleaning coils for improved airflow. By committing to regularly scheduled maintenance checks by professional technicians, you can proactively address potential issues before they become costly problems or create noticeable disruptions.

Tip: Use Programmable Thermostats To Optimize Temperature Settings During Non-Business Hours

To further enhance the efficiency of your commercial HVAC system, consider using programmable thermostats that allow you to create customized temperature schedules based on occupancy patterns throughout the day. By adjusting temperature settings during non-business hours, you can save significant energy costs without sacrificing employee comfort during work hours.

Additionally, incorporating motion or occupancy sensors can optimize heating and cooling systems by only activating them when necessary. This strategic thermostat programming and sensor technology combination ensures unused spaces do not waste valuable energy resources heating or cooling empty rooms.

Tip: Ensure That Ductwork Is Properly Sealed To Prevent Air Leaks

Another crucial aspect of an efficient commercial HVAC system is ensuring that ductwork is properly sealed to prevent air leaks. A comprehensive ducting assessment can identify these issues with the ducting so they can be sealed. This is especially important for older HVAC systems because they may be more likely to develop air leaks in the ducting over the years.  

Furthermore, ensure that all air vents within your commercial space are unobstructed by furniture or other items that could impede airflow. Proper airflow contributes to energy efficiency and provides a comfortable environment for employees and visitors.

Tip: Install Demand-Control Ventilation Systems

Invest in a demand-control ventilation system for your commercial HVAC setup. These advanced systems use sensors to detect occupancy levels within spaces and adjust fresh-air flow rates accordingly, helping maintain indoor air quality when needed while saving on energy costs. Furthermore, these systems can be activated manually to increase fresh air circulation. This is useful for quickly expelling smoke or odors.

Maintaining Your HVAC Unit

My husband and I live in an older brick ranch home. Since we moved into this house ten years ago, we’ve been slowly renovating it. We installed new hardwood and tile floors. We’ve also replaced cabinet hardware and installed a new backsplash in the kitchen. While we’ve definitely completed some upgrades, we still have a lot of work to do. One of our future purchases will be a new HVAC system. Our unit is twenty years old. However, to keep it running efficiently for the time being, we have it regularly inspected. In order to properly maintain the air conditioning unit at your home, you should consider having an HVAC contractor examine it annually. On this blog, you will discover the things an HVAC contractor looks at during an annual inspection.
