Increasing the Efficiency of your Small Businesses Furnace

As a business owner, you have a lot of expenses that can impact your bottom line. These costs include payroll, inventory purchases, and overhead. So when it comes to your small businesses furnace, the last thing you want to contend with is skyrocketing energy costs. Nevertheless, it is still important to keep the air in your commercial space warm and comfortable during the Tri-Cities winter months.

You also know that heating your office is important to keep the air warm and comfortable during this coldest time of the year in the Tri-Cities.

So it brings up the question, how can you efficiently boost your small business furnace so you can save money this winter?

How You Can Enhance the Efficiency of Your Small Businesses Furnace

There are several ways you can add greater efficiency to your commercial business’s furnace. And these energy efficiency tips will come at little or no cost to your business.

    • Upgrade Your Furnace Thermostat
    • Ensure Your Air Ducts are Sealed
    • Boost Efficiency With Ceiling Fans
    • Optimize Your Weatherstripping
    • Clean and Replace Your Furnace Filter
    • Schedule Regular Maintenance for Your Furnace

Upgrade Your Furnace Thermostat
One of the most effective ways to enhance the efficiency of your furnace is to upgrade your thermostat. The thermostat is one of the most important parts of your energy system. It is how you communicate with your heater. When you swap your basic thermostat for a digital, or smart, thermostat, it will enable your business to enjoy warm and comfortable air at a more affordable price. In fact, a programmable thermostat will save you even more money.

Upgrading your thermostat is one of the easiest ways you can build in more efficiency to your furnace.

Ensure Your Air Ducts Are Sealed
In order to save money on the heating for your small business, make sure your air ducts are sealed. Statistics show that as much as 20 percent of warm air escapes through faulty air duct seals.

Call on Apollo Heating and Air Conditioning to inspect your small businesses furnace air ducts and to perform any necessary maintenance. This will help to ensure your business benefits from heightened furnace efficiency as you reap the energy savings.

Increase Efficiency with Ceiling Fans
If your business offices have ceiling fans, then be sure to use them this winter. Simply reverse the direction of the ceiling fan by using a switch. This pushes down heated air from the ceiling for faster distribution of warm air.

Making this change to your ceiling fan will also help to make your small business furnace run with greater efficiency.

Optimize Your Weatherstripping
You may not realize it, but heat from your furnace that warms your offices can escape through cracks in your doors and windows. This translates into your business losing energy that you are paying for.

In order to address the leaking of warm air, consider weatherstripping to seal your windows and doors and be sure that the heat in your offices and other rooms at your business stays inside.

Clean & Replace Your Small Businesses Furnace Filter
Making sure you have a clean filter in your furnace is essential to ensure that it operates at optimum efficiency. The filter is responsible for extracting harmful particles from the air, which might be circulating in your offices. These particles are potentially dangerous to you and your employees, as well as to the furnace.

That is why it is essential to regularly change the furnace filter to avoid an accumulation of dirt and debris that could wreak havoc on the entire energy system. Having a clean filter will help your furnace last much longer and run with greater efficiency.

Schedule Regular Maintenance for Your Furnace
Scheduling maintenance service for your furnace will help to ensure that it operates consistently at maximum efficiency. During a maintenance service, Apollo Heating and Air Conditioning technicians will conduct a complete inspection of your furnace and identify specific repair needs, as well as make necessary adjustments.
