When you run a business, you keep a sharp lookout on finances to make sure that there aren’t any unnecessary expenses that might negatively affect it. One common area where companies end up spending more than they should is for air conditioning; it isn’t something that people often think of in the “expenses” column, but during a hot summer, commercial air conditioning can quickly add up to large electrical costs.
And, chances are, the air conditioning expenses for your commercial AC are higher than they should be.
What can you do to make your business’ AC costs lower? You can start with a call to Ideal Services Heating & Cooling to have a talk with our commercial HVAC specialists. They have many years of experience and training in helping businesses in the Raleigh Triangle Area receive the best performance from their heating and cooling systems.
The first piece of advice that our technicians will give you is to schedule regular maintenance for your air conditioner and to continue to have maintenance done for it every year (preferably during the spring). With a thousand other things vying for your attention, it’s easy to let maintenance for the AC slip away; but a professional company will make it simple to keep you up-to-date with inspections and tune-ups.
Maintenance is essential to receive energy-saving performance from your AC. It only takes a year without it for a commercial system to lose 5% of its efficiency—and that is already quite an uptick in costs. After only four years without maintenance, you’ll pay a fifth more for air conditioning than you did before—and probably for lower-quality air conditioning. Add onto that the higher chance of needing to schedule repairs, and you can lose a good deal of money for an air conditioning system that doesn’t have routine maintenance.
Another way to heighten energy efficiency for the system is to install a new thermostat control system. If you’ve used the same set of thermostats for years, they are likely behind the times and missing important features that will increase precision and efficiency. If you bring in commercial HVAC professionals to look over your thermostats and electrical system, they can advise you about places where the new installation will save you money.
