CPS shares how to save money on your commercial HVAC costs.

If you are a current or aspiring business owner, we know that every penny counts. Making a few adjustments can ensure your HVAC system runs efficiently and effectively while also keeping your energy bills down. We would like to share our expertise when it comes to saving money on your commercial HVAC costs.

Here are seven ways to save money on heating bills in commercial spaces:

1. Location:

If the nature of your business tends to produce heat (large equipment or ovens), we recommend either choosing a site with foliage or planting some at your existing commercial building. If your building runs cold, opt to make landscaping adjustments by trimming back trees. The sun’s radiant heat is more substantial than you might think.

2. Insulation:

According to energy.gov: proper insulation is one of the most cost-effective means of reducing energy bills. Properly insulating your space will decrease heat flow by providing an effective resistance to the flow of heat.

3. HVLS Fans:

(High volume, low speed) these commercial space-specific fans will increase the efficiency of your existing heating and cooling system by increasing airflow. Make sure the fan is rotating counter-clockwise during the warmer months and clockwise during the colder months. Clockwise creates an updraft which forces the warm air near the ceiling down toward the floor.

4. Change your filters:

Swapping out your filters regularly will increase the efficiency of your unit while also maintaining clean indoor air quality.

5. Efficient lightbulbs:

On their own, these lightbulbs will save you money on energy, but they are critical in the summer months. Inefficient lightbulbs create more heat and, therefore, add to cooling costs in the summer.

Utilizing a programmable thermostat is an excellent way to save money on your next energy bill

6. Programmable thermostats:

Utilizing a programmable thermostat is an excellent way to save money on your next energy bill. These thermostats are especially advantageous for buildings housing large equipment that only needs to run for a specific amount of time. Running equipment when people are not present allows you to give your air conditioner a break since you do not need to maintain lower temperatures for comfort.

7. Efficient HVAC systems:

Choosing an efficient mechanical system is the foundation of saving money on energy bills. It is the number one priority when choosing a heating or cooling system for any space. Look for high SEER and HSPF ratings when buying an HVAC system. Our experts at CPS can help you determine what system best suits your needs.
