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?
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.
