Spring in Naples, FL, is a great time of year to consider having a professional look at your HVAC system. Regular maintenance increases your air conditioner’s lifespan and prevents any minor damage from escalating into an expensive disaster. Here are a few tips for making your business’ HVAC system more efficient.
Change Your HVAC Filters Regularly
Dirt-covered filters cause your HVAC to work harder than necessary as it blocks airflow. In the aftermath, it also results in inferior indoor air quality and higher upkeep costs. Make it a point to check your HVAC filters on a regular basis, at least every four months. Consult with an HVAC company about how often you should change your filters and schedule professional maintenance.
Install Programmable Thermostats
Putting up programmable thermostats in your workplace can alleviate the burden of trying to accommodate the differing temperature preferences of your employees. It focuses your business’ efforts on sustainability and lower costs. Programmable thermostats help reduce energy waste by automatically adjusting indoor temperatures when particular spaces are vacant.
Invest in an Economizer
An HVAC economizer is an add-on to your current air conditioning system. It utilizes the cooler air outdoors to regulate the temperature indoors. By utilizing the ambient air outside your commercial space, it minimizes the use of your system’s compressor, minimizing your energy costs in the process.
Replace Your Windows and Lights
Energy-efficient storm windows and lighting can both help reduce heat indoors, which means less work for your cooling systems. The initial costs of installing these energy-efficient fixtures are easily offset by long-term energy savings and reduced HVAC upkeep costs.
