Effective Commercial Air Conditioning Maintenance Tips That Saves Money

  • Written by NewsServices.com

Air conditioning, ventilation, and heating systems are heavy energy consumption devices for any business. You will be surprised to know that cooling alone has a 15-20% share in electricity consumption in the commercial setups.

Every business is keen to reduce the electricity wastage by these AC systems, which can eventually save them a lot of money. Surprisingly, you can do many things to maintain  AC systems and reduce costs that need little to no expenses. However, more technical maintenance practices can give a decent return to your investments.

Businesses that strive to enhance environmental well-being and reduce working expenses should consider the five energy and cost-reducing tips. The tips can be more efficient if you work with an expert commercial air conditioning technician. 

Cost and Energy Saving Commercial AC Maintenance Tips

1. Change the AC Filters Regularly

  • * Dirty and non-maintained air conditioning filters lead to
  • * Restricted airflow,
  • * Low quality of indoor air,
  • * More AC maintenance and repairs, and
  • * The increased cost of usage.

Hence, you should check the AC filters regularly, if possible in every quarter. Better that you hire an expert technician to manage timely check-ups.

If the AC's undergo heavy usage, you can consider changing them every 30-50 days. But, you should not use the filters beyond three months. Changing the dirty filters is the easiest maintenance thing that can be done and still save you 5-10% of the energy costs.

2. Schedules Thermostats Can Save Hundreds of Dollars

In most businesses, temperature control can be controversial. But scheduling timely thermostats can eliminate the hassles of monitoring the temperature settings to meet the expectations of employees and customers.

Scheduled thermostats can result in energy savings and environmental well-being in many ways. You can preset the building temperatures according to the seasons to be either low or high. You can schedule your AC's to switch off when business places are not in use. It can save you many dollars a year.

You can program the thermostats based on a 7-day routine, which is ideal for frequently changing schedules. You can also plan for a 5+2 day routine, where the employees work only for five days, while you can save a lot of energy on the weekends.

An expert AC technician can help you buy a programmable thermostat that can do wonders for your business.

3. Regular Quality Check-ups

Commercial AC check-ups are similar to your car maintenance, as both are essential for their optimum performance. Regular maintenance ensures that you don't waste energy on equipment due to faults, aging, and below-average performance.

AC management statistics suggest that regularly maintained and serviced AC's can reduce your AC maintenance cost by almost 40%. However, to reach this level of savings, you must find a technician who has expertise in managing commercial air conditioners.

4. Ensure Proper Sealing of Cooling Ducts

Simple things can result in more cost savings when done in a proper way. You should seal the cooling ducts completely to enhance the cooling efficiency by 25% and more. A well-trained technician knows how to pack the AC duct to improve the AC's performance.

You can seal the air ducts with duct sealant, foil tape, or even a mastic. You can enhance the sealed effect by covering the AC ducts with insulation. Prioritize the sealing areas; look for unprotected places below the company's building or even inside the cold storage.

5. AC System Upgrades and Replacements

Sometimes, the only way out is by upgrading or replacing faulty AC units to enhance efficiency and save cost in times to come. Every piece of equipment has a life, and any usage beyond that could lead to excessive energy consumption and running costs.

Consider changing an air conditioner that is a decade old and get it replaced by an energy-saving product. Certified energy-saving products can increase durability and even reduce electricity bills by 20%. Explore various star-rated AC products and make your purchase decision based on your business requirements.

Enhance Your AC Life and Save Cost by Hiring an Expert AC Contractor

If you want to get the maximum out of AC maintenance, upgrade, or repairs, you must hire an expert technician. The technician is liable to do frequent check-ups and suggest if any major repairs are required or not.

Several AC maintenance companies also have some service programs. Get your business enrolled with them to ensure the long life and efficient usage of your AC systems.
