Tips to Improve Commercial Heating Efficiency

Monday, December 17th, 2018

We know how important it is for you as a business owner to keep your employees and customers comfortable and warm throughout the heating season. We know that winter here in Mississippi is mild compared to some other parts of the country, but when the temperature dips below 60 degrees, you’ll want an efficient commercial heating system.

It is always best to consult with a professional HVAC technician about your system’s specific needs. Every system is different and requires the hands of a trained professional to get the job done right. EMI Mechanical offers commercial heating services in Jackson, MS. We want to help you both improve and maintain your commercial heating system’s effectiveness and efficiency. But in the meantime, we have provided you with some tips and tricks on how to improve your commercial heating system’s efficiency.

Use a Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats can be an effective way to save you money on energy bills. A programmable thermostat allows you to set a nice, warm temperature during the workday and a cooler temperature overnight. Simply setting an appropriate temperature for various times throughout the day can cut heating costs by hundreds of dollars.

Invest in Proper Sealing

When your ducts are professionally sealed, heating efficiency can be increased by up to 20%! Over time, ducts can become faulty, which can lead to leaks. Leaks in the ductwork decrease heating efficiency dramatically and you begin paying for lost heat. Only an HVAC professional can inspect your ductwork and ensure that it is properly sealed.

Consider an Upgrade

Older heating systems are simply not as efficient as current models. It is highly recommended that systems that are more than 15 years or older be replaced by a newer, more efficient model. Today’s systems can be up to 98% effective, meaning that 98% of the fuel being used becomes heat for your business. Why spend money on wasted fuel?

Regular Maintenance

The best way to ensure your commercial heating system remains efficient is to schedule regular maintenance services. Your HVAC technician will inspect the system for any signs of a potential problem, giving he or she the ability to fix any minor problem before it becomes major. Trust us, commercial heating repair bills are costlier than maintenance bills. It is always better to remain proactive.

We understand that things do happen, and repair service is inevitable. If you, or any of your employees, suspect any issues with your commercial heating system, don’t hesitate to schedule repair service! Waiting to contact a qualified professional can put your entire system in jeopardy.  Scheduling timely repair services is another great way to improve and maintain the overall efficiency of your system.

Here at EMI Mechanical, we know how important the comfort of your employees and customers is to you. We offer preventative maintenance, repair, replacement, and installation services to ensure your system’s longevity. No matter what system you are using, we recommend scheduling maintenance services at least twice a year.

To schedule your commercial heater maintenance or repair service, contact EMI Mechanical today!

Have You Thought About Your Air Filter?

Monday, December 17th, 2018

If you own a furnace, you appreciate it for its versatility, affordability, and effectiveness. So, when something goes wrong, you are bound to notice. We know that scheduling repair services can be a hassle—it costs you time and money. So, why not skip the repair altogether and schedule a maintenance visit? During this visit, your HVAC technician will perform routine inspections and replace your air filters. Your furnace’s air filter is easy to forget about, so it becomes easy to minimize the importance of it.

Your system’s air filter should be changed about every 1–3 months, especially during the heating season. Typically, homeowners get their filters replaced once a year, but it simply isn’t enough. Without scheduling regular filter replacement, your furnace is subjected to a wide range of potential problems, including a full system breakdown! Luckily, this can all be easily avoided. Our technicians at Environment Masters, Inc. provide quality HVAC services in Brandon, MS.

Don’t Forget About Your Commercial Heating Tune-Up

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

commercial-techsWhen you run a business, the last thing that you want to be worrying about is a heater that is failing to live up to your expectations—not to mention the expectations of those that work in and patronize your property. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees in life, and you cannot just expect your commercial heating system to operate properly at all times. No system is ever truly 100% reliable. Does that mean that you should just sit back and wait for disaster to strike, though?

No, of course not. Take a proactive approach in protecting your commercial heating system. Schedule routine commercial heating maintenance in Jackson, MS. Mild winters do not mean that you can eek by with a subpar performance from your commercial heater. If you want to maintain a happy workforce or impress your patrons and potential clients, greeting them with a warm and comfortable property is a top priority. Read on for more tips about how commercial heating maintenance benefits you.

Maintaining Great Indoor Air Quality

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

UV-liightIf you think that the air in your home is of a higher quality than the air outside by default, it isn’t. We all know that there is some pollution in the air outside, but few homeowners understand that the air quality indoors is often lower than that outside. Fewer realize that this is often the case by a significant margin! Remember, modern homes tend to be sealed up very tightly. That’s great for energy efficiency, but not so much for indoor air quality.

Fortunately for you, the IAQ professionals on our team are never more than a phone call away. Environment Masters, Inc. is here to find the right air filtration and/or purification systems for your needs. Don’t count on the standard air filter in your whole-house heating or air conditioning system to do the job. Those filters are of relatively low-efficiency ratings and are really there to protect the HVAC system itself, not the air quality throughout the home.
