Save Energy, Save Money: Maintaining Your Commercial Air Conditioning System

Empty Boardroom

Whether you rent or own a building, you typically need commercial air conditioning systems to stay in business. But one thing every business owner worries about is the cost of electricity. The price of energy is increasing every year. This is why it’s important to get the best performance out of your AC unit with the least amount of energy.

Here’s how:

Schedule a tune-up

Like a new car, AC units require regular maintenance to work at their peak. Contact experienced technicians providing tune-ups before each cooling and heating season. In addition to saving energy and money, your system may last years longer with minimal costs for annual maintenance fees.

Change filters regularly

Central air conditioning systems should have their filters changed at least once every few months. Dirty, clogged filters block normal airflow and reduce a system’s efficiency. To ensure efficient operation, hire knowledgeable consultants who can give you advice regarding your commercial air conditioning needs. They will know if your AC unit needs cleaning or replacement.

Control direct sun through windows

Close shades in the morning to reduce heat gain from the sun. Interior curtains or drapes can help, but it’s best to prevent sunlight from getting past the glass. Depending on your facility, options such as awnings can help keep the place cool.

Electricity costs contribute to your business’s financial success. So the more energy you save, the more profitable you can be.
