Making sure that your commercial space is in good working order is part of being a business owner. Part of that involves heating your business which can be a costly expenditure. No one wants huge utility bills, but your employees and customers need to be comfortable. Cold employees won’t be happy and their work will suffer. And cold customers or clients will spend as little time as possible in a chilly space.
One way to stay on top of heating expenses is by making sure your commercial HVAC system is running as efficiently as it possibly can. You can count on our team to help you get the best performance from your commercial heating service in Whittier, CA. Here are four tips to get the best efficiency from your commercial heater so you, your employees, and your customers will be comfortable.
1. Upgrade Your Systems
How old are the HVAC systems in your commercial spaces? If they’re getting up there in age, they’re lacking the latest in technology. Commercial HVAC systems have come a long way in the last decade with innovations in technology transforming the industry.
It might be time for you to consider replacing an older HVAC system with a new one. Also, if your business has expanded in size over time, your current system might be overburdened and unable to meet the needs of your business as it functions now. Replacing the system could be the investment you need to make to ensure a system that runs smoothly, efficiently, and economically.
2. Invest in Regular Maintenance
Speaking of older systems, maintenance is especially important to get the most from an aging heating system. Depending on the age and type of system, maintenance frequency may vary. But a good rule of thumb to follow is to schedule maintenance at least twice a year.
Routine maintenance not only keeps your system running as efficiently as possible, but it’s also an opportunity to identify and fix any potential minor issues before they become major, expensive problems. We offer various levels of maintenance programs that are designed to provide greater comfort, efficiency, and peace of mind.
3. Don’t Neglect Ductwork
Poorly maintained ductwork can be a major culprit when it comes to high heating bills. Leaky ducts not only waste energy through heat loss, but they can also contribute to poor indoor air quality. Schedule ductwork inspection and we’ll make sure your ducts are sealed tight and giving your heating system the support it needs to do its job well.
4. Upgrade Your Thermostats
Smart thermostats have improved significantly in recent years and now’s a great time to make the switch. The benefits that smart thermostats offer residential buildings are the same for commercial facilities. And just like a residential smart thermostat, you should consult with a professional to choose one that’ll work with your existing HVAC system and leave its installation to the pros.
