Energy Efficiency Testing for Your Business

For some reason, many of us seem very energy conscious when it comes to our homes, but not as cognitive about the energy inefficiencies which may be draining funds out of our business. 

How much would you save on energy costs if all the lights were shut off when they weren’t in use or were put on timers? Could the thermostats be adjusted up or down a degree or two? The utility costs associated with operating a business make up a big piece of the overhead expense. Why not make some effort to curb those costs? 

If you’re HVAC system is more than a couple of years old, you might want to start your energy savings program by scheduling an energy efficiency test on the system by a qualified commercial HVAC maintenence contractor. A contractor can make a thorough inspection of the system and make any repairs or maintenance required. When a system is running properly it will consume less energy. 

Sometimes, even when a system is operating at its maximum efficiency, you may still be experiencing higher energy bills than you would with a newer more efficient system. Your HVAC contractor can assist you in weighing out the costs of replacement against the potential energy savings. An upgrade may save you money over time. 

Don’t leave your ‘green’ hat at home. Saving energy in your business can be ‘green’ in more than one way.
