Your commercial air conditioning works hard every day to keep your staff comfortable. If you don’t use or maintain this system properly, the building may become uncomfortable, and you may waste money on high utility bills. Avoid these common mistakes to keep your system functioning properly.
3 Common Commercial Air Conditioning Mistakes
1. No Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat is a small investment that makes a big difference. Install one if you don’t have it yet; once you set it for the season, you won’t need to think about it again.
Program the air to kick on about 30 minutes before everyone arrives for the day, then raise 10 degrees 30 minutes before everyone leaves. According to the Department of Energy, you can save up to 10% a year on utility bills by setting the thermostat back 10 degrees for eight hours a day.
2. Skipping Preventive Maintenance
Preventive maintenance requires an upfront investment but will save your long-term bottom line by keeping the system working efficiently and avoiding the need for emergency repairs. Bring an HVAC contractor in the spring and fall to service the system.
3. Keeping It Too Cool
Many businesses set their thermostat lower than it needs to be. If your employees or clients say they feel uncomfortably cold, it’s time to raise the thermostat. Most businesses shouldn’t set the thermostat lower than 74 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer.
