HVAC maintenance for commercial buildings is important for a variety of reasons. Those include energy costs, health and welfare, productivity, and many other costs too.
How much of your buildings energy usage comes from climate control?
In most cases, the energy usage for an entire commercial building tips the scales around 40 percent for heating and cooling. In the High Desert region, keeping a building cool in summer and warm in winter is challenging. That is one reason commercial HVAC service is important.
Helping You Save Energy and Money
The more efficiently that an HVAC system run, the less energy it uses. The less efficiency with which an HVAC system operates, the more energy it consumes. With 40 percent of a building’s energy consumption going to the building’s HVAC system, the more money you spend to keep your building comfortable.
If you consider how much 40 percent of your energy costs you on an annual basis, then it should be pretty easy to find the incentive to save energy. One of the first things that you should consider is having your HVAC system inspected. Heating and cooling are necessary if you want to keep tenantshappy, but there are many ways that an HVAC system can be tuned to save energy.
What to Check First
First, consider how much energy it takes to heat or cool the areas of your building that are not occupied by tenants. If the duct system of your HVAC is not sealed, then you are paying for heat and cool of attic space. An HVAC technician can tell if your duct system is not sealed properly. Apple Valley gets hot in the summer, sealing your duct system allows your HVAC to efficiently warm or cool the areas of your commercial building that matter the most without wasting energy cooling spaces that do not matter.
Hesperia Gets Windy
And the winds of the High Desert carry tiny particles of dust and sand. Make sure that your HVAC system is cleaned out at least quarterly. Those tiny grains of sand cause the moving parts of your HVAC to struggle and wear out quickly, which leads to HVAC repair costs.
If the idea is to save money then avoiding HVAC repair costs is a great way to do just that. Ongoing maintenance with regular filter care can save even more annually. Clean filters help the system run more efficiently, and they contribute to the overall health of a building. Healthy air helps make workers and tenants happier. There is an entire cycle of reasons that HVAC maintenance boosts your bottom line.

It's surprising to hear that close to 40% of a building's energy usage could be due to climate control, depending on how efficient the system is. A friend of mine has been looking for ways to cut down the costs of his small business. Maybe he could look into getting a more efficient HVAC system to see if that could reduce his utilities.

My husband and I are thinking of starting a business and since we will use the HVAC a lot we are looking for advice. It's interesting to know that the more efficiently your HVAC system run, the less energy it uses, and the other way around. I will definitely talk to my husband about it so that we have it regularly maintained to ensure it's running smoothly.

That makes sense that dust and sand can break your unit. I need to get a contractor to service my AC. It won't start up.

Saving money and energy sounds extremely important for commercial establishments, so I can see how this is one of the most crucial things to worry about. This could be something that affects overhead and upkeep costs the most if the owner isn't aware of any of the problems they cause. I'd definitely hire an HVAC expert from the area to help me with regular maintenance in the event that I ever become a commercial building owner.

I appreciate you mentioning that an HVAC system consumes less energy when it operates more effectively. My air conditioner doesn't work properly since it doesn't blow cool air. I'll contact the heating system services to have my HVAC checked to ensure everything is working properly.

I like how you mentioned that an efficient and effective HVAC system could help you save electricity. A couple of days ago, my cousin told me she was planning to have a heating system installed in their clothing store to balance temperature controls. She asked if I had any idea what would be the best option to do. I admire your advice. I'll be sure to consult a trusted commercial heating service as they can help with more information about the system installation.
I like that you talked about being able to save energy when the HVAC system runs efficiently. I hope that commercial properties will ensure that is achieved by maintaining their units to help our environment as well. In my opinion, the owners should schedule maintenance tasks from the commercial heating installation company they are going to hire for their own benefit as well, since they can save form monthly expenses in the long run.

I love how you point out that the more efficiently your AC unit runs the less energy it uses which saves money. My brother owns an office building and it's been a few months since he last had his HVAC system checked and he wants to make sure it's still running properly. We'll have to be sure we call some professional HVAC contractors to come to take a look at the system.
