Keep the Set Temperature Lower

When it comes to saving money on your heating bill, keeping your thermostat set lower is a great way to save money. Ideally, we would recommend that you set your thermostat at 68 degrees Fahrenheit to keep your office space warm without wasting energy. While this may seem a little chilly, it’s worth the savings. If you are looking to encourage energy efficiency this year, reach out to Quality Air Experts today for help with your HVAC system and heating efficiency.


Time it Right

Unless there are employees working in your office late into the night, turning down the thermostat at night and up during the day can help to save energy when you don’t need it to be used. If you are looking to save energy and save money this winter, try programming your thermostat to around 68 during the day and a little cooler at night! This will cause your system to slow down at night, saving you money without you even realizing that your office is cold. For more tips like these, reach out to Quality Air Experts today.


Utilize Your Environment

Believe it or not, your surrounding environment has a lot of heating capacity — probably more than you think. For instance, leaving your sun-facing windows open to let sunlight in and closing blinds on windows that face away from the sun is a great way to allow heat from the sun in while maximizing temperature retention. When night comes, shut all of the blinds to keep heat in the building! Utilizing your environment to warm your building is a great way to conserve energy and save money on your energy bills.


Keep Everything Sealed

From doors to windows, hatches, chimneys, and more, there are likely tens if not hundreds of tiny gaps in your commercial building that allow cold air into the office space or warehouse. Making sure that these gaps are sealed, or at the very least blocked, can help to keep the warm air in and the cold air out, preventing your HVAC system from running too much. If you are in need of commercial HVAC advice, repair, or installation, reach out to Quality Air Experts today! We look forward to helping your business save money where it matters most.

In many cases, old systems could also be the cause of high energy bills. If you are looking to save money not just this winter but for years to come, replacing your old HVAC system with a new, more efficient system is a great way to improve energy efficiency and save money for your business. If you are interested in installing a new system or are looking to repair your current system for improved efficiency and performance, we can help you to have an HVAC system you can trust.
