A 3-Step Plan to Effectively Manage Commercial HVAC Systems
Along with the business side of things, owners of small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) must ensure the consistent and efficient management of the day-to-day operations of their commercial properties. This means making sure that their HVAC systems are in top condition and are providing adequate indoor comfort and good air quality.
Today, local cooling and heating installation contractor Applied Air Mechanical, LLC shares a three-step plan for business owners to consider so they can effectively manage their commercial HVAC systems.
Step 1: Assess the Facility’s Needs
For this step, small= and medium-sized businesses can take advantage of energy audits, some of which come at no cost. Here, professionals will visit the facility and make assessments to identify and prioritize ways to save on energy and accompanying costs. Recommendations are then made, such as an update or retrofit heating and cooling equipment along with other money-saving solutions, discounts and rebates.
Step 2: Hire a Local HVAC Contractor
Before owners of SMBs invest money in HVAC systems, they must first take the time to vet reliable and trustworthy HVAC contractors. In addition to obtaining estimates for their heating or AC installation projects, they must also see to it that the contractors are fully bonded and insured and have an established reputation in the local area.
Step 3: Maintain the HVAC System
Every year, heating and cooling systems lose their efficiency, especially if they don’t receive routine service. This can lead to reduced comfort on the premises and significant increases in monthly utility bills. As such, business owners should also learn about prospective contractors’ maintenance plans that will help preserve HVAC units long after they’ve been installed. With annual or seasonal tune-ups and regular air filter checks, HVAC systems will be able to perform their best for as long as possible.
