Maintaning Office HVAC Systems

Permalink 04/28/16 14:10, by admin, Categories: Company News

As your office building HVAC system runs, it accumulates dust and dirt in the ducting, filter and the condenser that affect its efficiency.

Left unchecked, your A/C system can lose a percentage of its operating efficiency each season because of this clogging effect, it cools poorly. San Diego for instance, has the highest electric rates in the USA, so anything you can do to increase your a/c efficiency will pay off in energy savings.

Here are some things to keep in mind when using and maintaning your HVAC systems:

Don't keep changing the thermostat. Decide on the consensus temperature for the staff's comfort, and leave it there. Some businesses place a lock box over the thermostat for this reason.

Consider the use of a timer. Many of the better a/c systems come with a 7 day timer, so set it up according to the use of the building. This will not only save on electricity, it will save wear and tear on the unit.

Control radiant heat coming through the windows. Keep in mind that heat gets in via your window glass. Many companies use window tinting, to reduce the sun's effect, but you can also use blinds. And when the a/c is on, make sure windows stay closed.

Have the units regularly inspected and serviced.
Research has shown that poorly maintained HVAC systems can use up to 60% more energy!

Stay cool this summer!
