Whether climate regulation is specifically important to your business, you are located in an area with extreme or fluctuating temperatures, or you just care about your employees being comfortable, maintaining control over the environment inside your buildings is an important, and often expensive undertaking. HVAC systems are, far and away, the best choice for climate control, but understanding that reality is just the beginning.
Think Big Picture: While relying on piece-meal answers to problems like adding individual split-systems may be less expensive if you are simply comparing installation costs, factoring the cost to run those machines and maintenance and a comprehensive system is almost always the correct choice. Not to mention that there many cities and states offer tax-based incentives to install most energy efficient, complete solutions. Over the long term, an all-inclusive strategy will be more cost effective and practical.
Keep it in Peak Condition: Having a full HVAC system is a massive upgrade over trying to address the temperature in your building individually, but that’s just the beginning. Air conditioning is a substantial business expense, and it’s getting more and more expensive. Many parts of an HVAC system deteriorate over time, so the longer your system has been in use, the more it will cost you. Making sure that you are replacing your filters at the correct times, research the types of refrigerants available to you, and invest in solutions like CryoGenX4 to increase efficiency and prologue the life of your HVAC system.
The HVAC Alone isn’t Enough: Having an HVAC system, even one that is operating at peak efficiency, is a great first step towards getting a firm hand on your environmental controls, but it’s just a first step. Make sure your building is properly insulated can improve HVAC efficiency by 30%. Investing in technologies like variable speed pumps, electronic air cleaners, and smart monitoring to lower the energy use by electronics in the ‘off’ or ‘standby’ position can also increase efficiency and dramatically lower your company’s electricity bills.
Regulating your buildings temperature and climate is incredibly important across industries. Keeping your HVAC system running perfectly, through a combination of proper maintenance, both in terms of hardware and chemical solutions, and by improving the energy efficiency of your building as a whole is the single best way to achieve that objective.
