Heating Season Tips for Energy Efficient Businesses

Heating Season Tips Browns

Running an energy-efficient business leads to healthier budgets and better environments, not to mention a positive brand reputation. Often running a heater can be a company’s largest energy output. Here are some simple heating season tips to reducing your business’ carbon footprint and saving money on heating bills.

3 Commercial Heating Season Tips

Schedule Your Tune Up

Annual commercial maintenance for your heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system is very important. Just like a car, even a brand new, ENERGY STAR HVAC system will decline in performance without the proper maintenance. Pre-season is the most common time to schedule your tune-up, but it’s never too late to schedule maintenance, no matter how deep into winter we are. In New Jersey, where winter weather can last well into April, later is better than never!

As a business, you’ll save energy, cut costs and your system will work longer and stronger for years to come!

Change Your Filters

Change or clean (if reusable) HVAC filters monthly during the peak heating season. Depending on the environment of your commercial location, this may need to be more frequent. Electronic Air Cleaners should be cleaned every two months. This is one of the best tips to help you prevent your equipment from overworking, maximize indoor air quality and save on high energy costs.  

Replacing your air filter regularly in the heating season can affect your employees’ health and productivity in a positive way.

Utilize a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats are a great addition to help you save money, especially when your facility is not in use. A smart thermostat learns from your behavior, allowing you to monitor energy usage and save even more!

The idea behind a programmable or smart thermostat is that companies will reduce energy usage when employees are away from work or when the business is closed. This is particularly useful if a business is only open on certain days or completely empty at night. When used correctly, programmable thermostats can save up to 10-30% on heating and cooling costs.
