Set It & Forget It

Constantly changing the temperature on your thermostat leaves your comfort system working harder to heat up or cool down your office. To accommodate everyone, reduce strain on your system, and save money on your energy bills, set it and forget it. During summer months, set the thermostat to a comfortable 70 degrees, and during winter keep it between 70-72. Make sure to check there are no thermostat wars going on behind your back!

Schedule Your Comfort

You’re not always in your office, so your comfort system shouldn’t always be working either. With a programmable thermostat you can set temperatures on a schedule. This way, you’re not wasting money to keep an empty office comfortable. When you’re away from the office this summer, whether it’s weekends, nights, or holidays, schedule temperatures to be set 4-6 degrees higher than normal. You can even schedule your comfort levels to return to normal before you get back in the office. With a programmable thermostat, you save money without sacrificing comfort of yourself, your employees, or your customers.

Keep Sun Out

Sunshine is a great way to bring natural light into the office, but it also brings heat along with it. To take advantage of the lighting without the heat, invest in energy-star rated windows. These windows reduce heat transfer, saving you money on your energy bills. Looking for a quicker fix? Install blinds and curtains to shade your office during the day. 

Upgrade Your System

Old, outdated air conditioning systems are much less efficient than newer models, built even in the last 5 years. That means you could be wasting unnecessary amounts of energy that could be saved by upgrading to a new, high-efficiency comfort system. New systems offer variable speed fans that adjust speeds to constantly keep your office comfortable at a lower operating cost. That’s a win for everyone!

Maintain Your System

Whether you have a new system, or an older system, it’s important to have regular preventative maintenance performed on it. Preventative maintenance can help keep your system’s warranty intact as well as provide many other benefits including prolonged system life, less risk of breakdowns, and higher efficiency. If you’re looking to save money in the short run and the long run, regular preventive maintenance will help!
