The change in seasons from summer to fall means that colder weather is on the way. This means you’ll likely have to retask your commercial HVAC system. If you haven’t done it already, now is the time to have it evaluated for any necessary maintenance, repairs, or retrofits. But at the same time, you will want to make sure that it is as energy-efficient as possible. So how can you do this?
Schedule an Energy Audit
An energy audit can reveal how much energy you are using right now. Doing this can establish a baseline from which to judge what changes you need to make and what decisions to take down the road. The mechanical and lighting systems are both analyzed to see how efficient they are. From there, you can elect to make upgrades or decide to move on if the numbers are good enough. You can also see what condition your commercial HVAC equipment is in. Perhaps best of all, you can see how high the repair costs are going to be.
Arrange Preventative Maintenance
The next step is to arrange some preventative maintenance. Doing this at regular intervals is one of the best ways to ensure that your commercial HVAC system is running as smoothly as possible. What does this entail, exactly? Well, for one thing, it’s a task you shouldn’t undertake by yourself. Instead, rely on a service partner such as Crockett Facilities to inspect all HVAC related devices and systems. Then the filters can be switched out, belts and pulleys can be mended, and the oil can be changed out if need be. Also, any components that are worn out can be removed.
Use Better Technology
Using better technology is another grand idea, such as renewable energy sources like wind and solar, can make a huge difference. Programmable thermostats also make it easier to monitor indoor air quality and direct the force of airflow around the building. Whichever solution you want to try out, be sure to speak to your commercial HVAC service partner about it first.
