When it comes to commercial HVAC systems, budget-conscious business owners in Deerfield, Illinois, are always looking for ways to reduce costs. The following tips can help you to reduce energy consumption and your overall commercial HVAC costs so that you save more money.

Upgrade the Building’s Insulation

If you own the building in which you conduct business, one of the best things you can do to save money is to upgrade the insulation. That certainly seems like a costly prospect, but adequate insulation can end up paying for itself by saving on energy costs over time, making it a smart move for savvy business owners.

Other things you can do as a building owner is to have energy efficient windows and lighting systems installed. These improvements will go a long way toward helping your commercial HVAC system run more efficiently.

Upgrade the HVAC System

HVAC systems have vastly improved over the last decade, offering as much as 30 to 50 percent more efficiency than older systems. If you purchased your heating or cooling system more than a decade ago, it’s time to upgrade your commercial HVAC system.

When purchasing a new commercial system, keep in mind that programmable thermostats come in handy for maximizing your savings. You also don’t want to buy a system that is too large for your commercial space. If you are not sure where to begin with choosing the right system, one of our professional HVAC technicians can help identify which type of system would be best for your commercial upgrade.

Invest in an Energy Recovery Ventilator

Energy recovery ventilators are systems designed to save energy. They work by replacing stale air with fresh, clean, air. Cleaner air helps to reduce the HVAC unit’s load so that it operates more efficiently. In many cases, an energy recovery ventilator will pay for itself within the first three years.
