3 Ways Facilities Can Use Less Heat this Winter

Winter is here. Check out these tips to help make your building more energy-efficient this winter.

Get the Right Heater

In many cases, stationary air heaters turn out to be a perfect solution. They heat large areas by simply blowing warm air. Their advantage is that they provide heated air quickly and in large quantities, irrespective of the surrounding conditions. Moreover, their use of easily available fuel helps lower heating expenses. Carefully consider the size of your facility when looking for the right model – match its capacity to your space.

Maintain your HVAC System

Maintaining your HVAC system is one of the best ways to cut down on energy costs. A pre-winter check-up is a good idea for all HVACs, as you don’t want to lose function during the cold months when you need the system most. Making sure that your furnace’s filters and heating coils are regularly cleaned and/or replaced will help keep your HVAC system working at maximum efficiency and hold your electricity bill down.

Keep Outside Air Out and Inside Air In

Many buildings are bringing in more outside air than they need to, which makes their HVAC units work unnecessarily hard. Outside airflow rates should be reduced to a minimum for each space. Think about installing CO2 sensors in return air ductwork and maintaining interior CO2 levels.
