Now is the time to make sure your HVAC system is in proper working order for the upcoming winter. Even the most experienced facility and property managers need to find a reliable HVAC professional to help perform essential preventative maintenance tasks to ensure successful and energy efficient operations at all times.
Cleaning and Adjustments
The simple act of cleaning or changing the air filters now will improve airflow and overall efficiency. Fall is also an ideal time to adjust the supply registers. Opening a few supply registers on the first floor and closing a few on upper floors will facilitate heating of the building efficiently since cold air falls and hot air rises. Along with adjusting supply registers, calibrating the thermostat will also enhance the efficiency of heating. You can also go one step further and invest in a programmable thermostat. This allows you to control heating and cooling of your facility to reduce heating costs.
You should have your HVAC system professionally inspected twice a year. This is important to detect any potential problems and ensure the HVAC system is working as efficiently as possible. The inspection includes checking filters, electrical switches, belts, contacts, motors, safety switches, gas pressure, and refrigerant levels.
Nearly 33% of total energy consumption in commercial buildings is generated from the heating system. Therefore, an HVAC system that is working efficiently will significantly reduce your HVAC system energy consumption.
