Best Mechanical understands the need to keep costs down when constructing, renovating or maintaining a building. Reducing your energy consumption can lead to lower energy costs, and better mechanical efficiency. Our team of engineers, estimators and other HVAC professionals found three ways building owners and managers can save on your energy consumption this year:
1. Invest in a smart thermostat
A smart or programmable thermostat allows you to set your building to a neutral temperature and automatically adjusts when you are gone or away. This not only can help save you money, but also may also help extend the life of your HVAC system. It allows your HVAC to not work as hard while you’re away, increasing longevity, decreasing your monthly spend and improving your energy efficiency.
2. Routine Maintenance
You may not know that your HVAC isn’t running efficiently without scheduling routine fine-tuning and maintenance. This not only helps prolong your building’s system, but also helps address the issues that come with the changes of season.
3. Regulate the air intake to match occupancy levels
Typically, building’s HVAC systems are set at a constant level that matches peak occupancy. As we see hybrid work-life becoming a norm, we know that having peak occupancy isn’t the case much of the time. This means you could be spending more than you need to. Investing in a command control ventilation system regulates the air intake from outside match the occupancy inside. With monitored CO2 levels, the HVAC can either reduce or bring in additional air depending on occupancy. This leads to less work for your system, and lower energy consumption.
Whether you have a new construction project or existing building, making sure it’s energy efficient can save you. You can trust Best Mechanical’s professionals to get your system to work the most efficiently for you and your occupants. Contact us to evaluate your organization’s needs today.
