The end of the year has arrived. What resolutions did you have in mind? Not only can they be for personal betterment, but they can also be directed towards improving your workplace. Your business’s operating costs do not need to be a burden on your budget – instead, cutting back on energy costs is much more helpful and achievable than you might think. Here are some recommendations for how to do this just by adjusting or recalibrating your building’s existing HVAC system.
Upgrade to High-Efficiency HVAC Units
One of the first steps you can take is to investigate upgrades. A high-efficiency HVAC unit can pay dividends for years to come. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has noted how even a single dollar put towards improving energy efficiency can bring double or even triple that amount based on return-on-investment, or ROI. Seasonal energy efficiency ratios or SEER will tell you just how efficient the heating and cooling systems you depend on are. Newer systems with higher SEER ratings use less energy and produce better results.
Select Equipment That is Energy Star Rated
It is imperative that you seek out HVAC equipment that carries the Energy Star rating. The Energy Star label indicates that the system has passed stringent requirements based on guidelines set forth by the EPA. Rebates from your local utility company also serve as an excellent incentive for making the switch from older HVAC systems to newer ones.
Reconfigure the System After Building Modifications
How often does your building change? Perhaps other firms that share the building are leaving and there needs to be some renovations or remodeling done as they transition out and new tenants come in. If this is the case, then the currently-installed HVAC system must be reconfigured accordingly. Call for HVAC experts, such as the team here at Crockett Facilities, to come and inspect the current disposition of your HVAC setup. You might be surprised to learn that even minor changes can yield wonderful benefits for you and everyone else in the offices around you.
