The weather is finally starting to cool down, and that means that the heating system in your commercial building is becoming even more important. You don’t want your employees to freeze, but you also don’t want them to overheat. An inconsistent system can make your occupants miserable. If they are reporting discomfort due to the conditions inside your building, then it’s a sign that you need to replace the heating system. Here are some of the options that you can consider incorporating.
If you are concerned about lowering energy usage and decreasing utility bills for your enterprise, then renewable energy is the solution that you need. These systems rely on solar power, such as the power provided by solar panels, or geothermal sources. Although they are much more expensive to establish, in the long run, they are much more worth it. These systems can distribute heat much more efficiently than either steam heat or water heat systems, which is a tremendous benefit.
Like renewable energy heating systems, heat pumps can also keep your building warm without consuming too much energy. These systems draw heat from the air and move it through the air without the need for a fuel source or heating element.
Thermal Storage Systems
Upgrading your building’s heating systems, however, could take some unconventional thinking. Your commercial building could need an upgrade, especially if it hasn’t been renovated in several years. Upgrades for your commercial HVAC system take advantage of technology that you might not have had access to before, such as thermal storage systems. Your new HVAC system can be equipped with thermal storage, which means that heating and cooling operations change. Ice is created overnight, which is then used to provide air conditioning during the day, which can be a blessing on unseasonably warm days even this late in the year.
