Commercial & Industrial Tips
Commercial and Industrial tips are determined by each business/companies needs whether there is a product that requires cooling/heating or if it is strictly for employees/personnel etc. Please call for professional assistance in this category.
- Set your thermostat as high as comfortably possible in the summer. The less difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower your overall cooling bill will be.
- Don't set your thermostat at a colder temperature setting than normal when you turn on your air conditioner. It will not cool your home any faster and could result in excessive cooling and therefore unnecessary expense.
- Don't place lamps or TV sets near your air conditioning thermostat.
- Plant trees or shrubs to shade air-conditioning units but not to block the airflow. A unit operating in the shade uses as much as 10% less electricity than the same one operating in the sun.
- Regularly make sure the condensing unit located outside is not covered up or clogged with leaves or debris. (The unit needs to breathe, to draw air into the system.)
- Clean or replace filters on furnaces once a month.
- Set your thermostat as low as it is comfortable.
- Clean or replace filters on furnaces once a month. Clean warm-air registers, baseboard heaters and radiators as needed; make sure they're not blocked by furniture, carpeting or drapes.
- Use kitchen, bath and other ventilating fans wisely; in just one hour, these fans can pull out a houseful of warmed or cooled air. Turn fans off as soon as they have done the job.
- Keep draperies and shades open on south-facing windows during the heating season to allow sunlight to enter your home; close them at night to reduce the chill you may feel from cold windows.
