As a business owner, you know that your facility costs account for a large percentage of your spending each year. Besides rent or mortgage expenses, energy costs are considerable—U.S. businesses spend $400 billion on energy alone each year!

HVAC systems, along with lighting, are the biggest energy consumers in the average commercial building. Regularly maintaining these systems will mean they’re more efficient, less likely to break down and will last longer—and that will save you money in the long run.

Follow this advice to keep your building’s HVAC equipment in top shape, consuming less energy and serving you longer.

Preventive HVAC Maintenance in the Spring and Fall

Preventive maintenance should be performed in the spring for cooling systems and in the fall for heating systems. Preventative maintenance serves as a tune-up for your building’s HVAC systems, helping them run more efficiently throughout the season.

Hire a commercial HVAC professional such as SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield to inspect and clean your system. If maintenance is needed, it can be done right away without inconveniencing you or your employees.

These outdoor components should be inspected, cleaned, lubricated, adjusted or replaced if necessary:

  • Coil and cabinet
  • Drain pans and condensate lines
  • Compressor
  • Fan motor and blades
  • Control box, switches, wiring and safety controls
  • Refrigerant

These indoor components should be inspected, cleaned, lubricated, adjusted or replaced if necessary:

  • Blower assembly and housing
  • Belts
  • Evaporator coil, drip pan and condensate lines
  • Burner assembly
  • Ignition system
  • Safety controls
  • Heat exchanger
  • Flue system
  • Control box, wiring and connections
  • Air filter
  • Duct system

Other Routine Maintenance

Air Filters

Restricted airflow through the HVAC systems limits performance and increases energy consumption, while using clean air filters can lower energy consumption by up to 15%.

  • Inspect air filters every three to four weeks to be sure the filter has not become clogged.
  • Change air filters every three to six months (or more often if usage is heavy). Use a high-efficiency, pleated air filter.

Programmable Thermostats

  • Check your programmed thermostats at the beginning of the heating and cooling seasons to make sure that the settings still fit your needs.
  • Check thermostat operation monthly, and repair or replace if necessary.

With proper HVAC maintenance, your building’s heating and cooling systems can operate more efficiently year-round and generate energy savings for your business.
