Low Cost Ways to Save Energy in Commercial Facilities
Are your energy bills high for your home or business?
Want to save money on your energy bills without spending a ton of money on upgrades?
Is it time for a full inspection of your HVAC equipment?
A full inspection can help you understand the overall condition and operational efficiency of your HVAC equipment. According to the air conditioning experts at CMR Mechanical, here are the best ways to conserve energy, including:
- Repair or replace insulation
- Switch to LED lighting
- Invest in energy efficient appliances
- Tweak energy guzzling vending machines
- Conduct energy conservation training with your employees
- Change your air conditioning air filters regularly
- Clean your HVAC ducts
- Vacuum dusty vents and registers
- Avoid blocking vents and registers with furniture, rugs, and drapes
- Clean your air conditioning coils
Maintain & Improve Your HVAC System
If your HVAC system accounts for 50 percent of your building’s energy costs, making upgrades and boosting maintenance are the top two ways to save energy.
Upgrades: If you can’t afford to replace your old system, you can limit your energy use by making a smaller investment in HVAC upgrades. These improvements could include smart thermostat installation and programmable controls that will shut off lighting when your building is unoccupied. You may also consider retrofitting your system with energy saving elements like a compressor, air-side economizers, demand-controlled ventilation, and condenser fan controls.
Maintenance: When you’re looking to save energy, there is no substitution for preventative maintenance. Your service technician can change air filters, clean coils, and check refrigerant levels. Even if one part of your system is slightly off, energy usage and your utility bills can rise.
