Save Money on Your Businesses Energy Bill & National Energy Awareness Month

National Energy Awareness Month (#NationalEnergyAwarenessMonth) is designated as October by the U.S. Department of Energy each year. This month is dedicated to energy efficiency and conservation activities. Using energy responsibly makes sense for both the environment and for when you see your next energy bill. In light of this month and every month, it is important to ensure that the HVAC systems within your business are working as efficiently as possible to save money.

Review and Properly Set Control Systems

It is possible not every room of your business is being used at all times or your employees only work within certain hours. In this case it is a good ideas to create zones in the building. You will avoid wasting energy on cooling and heating places that aren’t used as frequently. Not heating or cooling every room within the whole building will save you money in the long run.

Proactive Routine Maintenance

One of the best ways to ensure energy efficiency is with proper preventive maintenance. Approximately half of the energy in a typical building is consumed by its HVAC system. A neglected system slowly loses its ability to keep your workspace comfortable at the same level of efficiency it once did. An added benefit is that energy-efficient performance translates into lower utility bills. Savings from efficient equipment operation can be substantial.

Upgrading to New HVAC Technology

HVAC systems and equipment are evolving everyday. Upgrading to new, more efficient and environmentally friendly systems will save on energy costs. New federal SEER and EER Ratings from the Department of Energy (DOE) begin on January 1, 2023. These minimum energy effiency requirements are designed to decrease energy usage. Uprading your systems can realize as much as a 25% reduction on operating energy costs while adding new features and more comfort.

For those responsible for operating a building, they’ll know that energy costs represent a large portion of their expenses. In fact, energy typically accounts for 30% of building costs and is the largest operating expense. But did you know that according to the EPA, 30% of the energy consumed in buildings is used inefficiently or unnecessarily.
