Your HVAC system is essential to keeping building occupants comfortable and maintaining good indoor air quality. It’s a common challenge for property owners or managers to keep their utility costs low while maintaining a healthy and comfortable environment for employees and customers. One thing that can help you achieve this goal is keeping your equipment efficient.
Here’s what can increase your energy bills and make occupants uncomfortable.
One of the most common reasons HVAC systems perform poorly is leaking refrigerant. When the refrigerant levels are low, your equipment will work harder. As a result, it consumes more energy and might decrease efficiency. To address this issue, air conditioning professionals must seal leaks and refill the refrigerant.
Ducts deliver conditioned air within the building. When they develop leaks, cool or warm air will escape, and your HVAC system will struggle to meet your heating and cooling needs. You will also notice a significant increase in utility costs due to wasted energy. Compromised ductwork must be repaired or replaced immediately.
Sometimes, the thermostat is the culprit behind rising energy costs and poor indoor comfort. You might have several thermostats, depending on the size of your building. If one fails or malfunctions, it will lead to inaccurate readings and cause your equipment to be inefficient. Contact a professional if you suspect your thermostat has issues.
Neglect can increase the likelihood of malfunctioning system components and early unit failure.
Routine maintenance is vital to the performance of your HVAC system. Experts recommend having your equipment serviced at least once a year.
