Pay Attention to Size
While an HVAC system can be a great energy saving device, a system that is too big can be an issue.
If your HVAC system is too big for the area it will be used with, it may run too often. Further, it may stop and start too much. This can create unnecessary use and increased energy costs.
But how big is too big?
Consider speaking to a trained professional to discuss the appropriate-sized HVAC system for you.
Use With Other Energy Saving Devices
An effective HVAC system is best used as part of an energy-efficient plan for you in your business.
For example, if you utilize lighting that uses less power, it can generate less heat. If there is less heat generated in your office, your HVAC system will run less, meaning you will get longer use out of it.
Running less also means you are paying less for energy costs!
Your HVAC system’s coils are important in order for your system to function properly and efficiently.
If your coils are dirty, this means that your HVAC system is having to work harder to heat or cool an area. It’s crucial that you monitor your coils for dirt and other material.
Your HVAC system can be a reliable energy saving device but dirty coils will impact this.
Besides monitoring your HVAC system’s coils, there are a handful of other important pieces. Proper maintenance can help your HVAC system be a more reliable energy saving device.
One important area to pay attention to is your refrigerant charge. Does your system need freon? When was the last time it was checked? Pay attention to this because a lack of freon can limit your system’s effectiveness.
Are you keeping up with regular inspections for your HVAC system? It’s a necessary part of ownership. Not keeping up with your general maintenance can mean your HVAC system is working harder than it should.
