Energy Saving Ideas for Commercial Buildings

With summer slowly approaching, brings to light warmer temperatures and humidity. Energy consumption for indoor climate control is likely to be one of your largest operating expenses during this season and we want to make sure you are prepared. Here are some tips to consider for reducing energy consumption this summer:

  • Replace inefficient cooling equipment with new high-efficiency equipment that has a higher coefficient of performance (COP) than the existing equipment.
  • Set back the thermostat in the evenings and other times when your building isn’t occupied. Set up trend logs of your HVAC systems to collect data on whether your systems are operating throughout the night.
  • Visually inspect the condition of the heating and cooling coils and the AHU filters. If the coils are dirty or the filters are clogged, change out the filters and clean the coils.
  • Eliminate Single Pass Cooling Systems. Single-pass cooling systems use water to cool equipment, and the water is circulated only once before being dumped. If possible, modify these systems to be closed loop.
  • Educate employees and building occupants about how their behaviors impact energy use.
