Your HVAC system is one of the most important investments you can make for your company. It keeps your place of work comfortable all year round, and it can save you money on your energy bills. But how do you know if your HVAC system is working as efficiently as it should be?
There are a few simple things you can do to measure the efficiency of your HVAC system. By following these tips, you can be sure that your system is working properly and that you’re getting the most out of your investment.
1. Check the filter
One of the easiest and most important things you can do to improve the efficiency of your HVAC system is to check the filters regularly. A dirty filter can restrict airflow, which can make your system work harder and use more energy.
To check the filter, simply remove it from the unit and inspect it for dust, dirt, and other debris. If the filter is dirty, it should be replaced with a new one.
2. Seal any air leaks
Air leaks can also cause your HVAC system to work harder and use more energy. To find air leaks, walk around your plant and listen for any whistling or hissing noises. If you hear any noises, try to identify the source of the leak.
3. Clean the coils
To clean the coils, turn off the power to your HVAC system and remove the access panel. Then, use a coil cleaner to spray the coils. Allow the cleaner to sit for the amount of time specified on the label, then wipe the coils clean with a damp cloth.
4. Get an annual tune-up
The best way to ensure that your HVAC system is running efficiently is to have it tuned up by a qualified technician once a year. During a tune-up, the technician will inspect your system for any problems and make any necessary repairs or adjustments. A tune-up can also help to extend the life of your HVAC system. By following these tips, you can help to keep your HVAC system running efficiently and save money on your energy bills.
