Regular a/c maintenance can help deflect a potential disaster for your business.

A commercial business heavily depends on its air conditioning system, especially during summer months, to keep its employees and customers cool and comfortable.

As a business owner, you usually have no control over how many windows are in your establishment plus these windows tend to be large.

So, your a/c system has to work harder to keep the building cool.

Use these tips to save money on the cost of cooling your business:

  • Have your thermostat checked – Although your thermostat may appear to be working, it may not be working efficiently so ask your a/c contractor to check it out. An inefficient thermostat can cost you hundreds of dollars each year.
  • Change your a/c filter regularly – If your a/c unit is running continuously, your filter may have to be changed as much as 3 times per year for proper air quality and to help keep your air conditioning unit running efficiently.
  • Regular maintenance – Scheduling regular maintenance for your a/c unit will ensure it is working properly. If your compressor starts to drag, your a/c unit will have to work harder which will cost you more in cooling costs. Also, to reduce the risk of shorts in your electrical system and for increased safety, regular a/c maintenence is important.
  • Inside and outside must be maintained – Both, the inside and outside parts of your a/c system need regular maintenance to keep the whole system running efficiently. The outside part (condensor) can accumulate dirt and debris from being outside all of the time and parts needs regular cleaning which are completed during a maintenance visit.

If you notice an increase in your electric bill, it is a big possibility that there is something going on with your a/c unit.
