Follow these winter commercial HVAC tips for small business owners in Texas to keep your system running without a hitch. As a result, you’ll improve employee productivity, customer satisfaction and operational efficiency.
Change Your Filters
Replacing your filters regularly is important for homeowners and commercial property managers alike. It should be a check on your maintenance to-do throughout the entire year. But this is especially important before the peak seasons of summer and winter.
Accessing filters can be difficult in commercial properties. To avoid damage or injury, enlist the help of an HVAC contractor to handle this and other routine heating maintenance for you.
Add a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat is a fantastic addition that can help you monitor energy usage and save money. If you manage a rental property, a smart thermostat can let you monitor energy usage. It also allows you to check that tenants are using their systems responsibly this winter.
Inspect and Clean Your System
It’s never too late to schedule commercial HVAC maintenance, no matter how cold the weather is already. Clean your heating ducts, as well. Removing dust and checking that the ducts aren’t leaking will ensure that you won’t waste the heating that you’re paying for.
Whether you manage a residential or a business property, follow these tips to keep your building and its occupants warm and happy all year. As an added bonus, an HVAC system that runs at peak efficiency will give you the best possible air quality. Warm, clean air will go a long way toward keeping workers healthy and focused during this cold time of year.
