How to Make Your Commercial HVAC System More Efficient

August 1st, 2022


As many of our customers know, Dayco doesn’t serve residential HVAC systems alone. We are also quite experienced at servicing commercial HVAC systems and even multi-home systems. We are uniquely qualified to handle all your commercial comfort needs, from HVAC installation and replacement, to indoor air quality and repairs. We’re also here for commercial HVAC maintenance!

Maintenance is what truly ensures the efficiency of your commercial HVAC system. This service allows our professionals to thoroughly inspect, clean, and adjust the components that need it, which helps your commercial HVAC system work as effectively and efficiently as possible, for as long as possible.

Just like with a residential system though, maintenance alone isn’t the only thing that can help boost commercial HVAC efficiency… or rather, lower cooling costs. Read on to learn what other tips we have for improving commercial HVAC efficiency, and give us a call when you’re ready to schedule service.

Make an Upgrade

This doesn’t have to be a huge investment. You can upgrade something as simple as your thermostats to start seeing savings right away. Manual and remote-controlled thermostats are becoming a thing of the past, and making way for smart and WiFi thermostats that not only can be controlled from anywhere with the use of a smart phone, but can adjust themselves based on your cooling and heating preferences.

There are also your actual HVAC units to consider. How old are they? The average useful service life of a well-maintained commercial HVAC system is about 10-15 years. After that, there’s going to be a natural drop in efficiency. Maintenance can help the system retain about 95% of its original efficiency rating, but only for so long.

Today’s commercial HVAC systems are designed even more efficiently than those in the past, coming with options like variable refrigerant flow and variable fan speeds/inverter drive air conditioners. We’re happy to go over your options if you believe you’re ready for a commercial HVAC upgrade. There may even be system models you haven’t considered before, such as ductless systems–which can be great for smaller office spaces that have separate rooms with people who have different cooling and heating preferences.

Look Into Solar Energy

Did you know that Georgia Power will buy back the excess energy a solar panel system creates at a rate less than the retail cost of energy? If there is anything business owners and commercial property managers like to do, it’s cut their overhead costs. This is one way to do it!

Solar panel installation is not just for our residential customers! More and more businesses are discovering the benefits of solar energy for their electrical needs. Given how much you need to run the commercial HVAC system in your space, it makes sense to look into any cost-saving initiatives that might be available to you, and solar energy is one.

Our team is happy to talk to you about your specific needs, and see how going solar could save your organization more money by helping your commercial air conditioning system(s) operate more efficiently.
