With temps spiking in the 100s this summer, it’s important for property managers to keep their team and tenants cool. But just because their AC use is skyrocketing, it doesn’t mean their expenses have to. Here are four money-saving tips for energy management, as told through cats. Enjoy!
Make sure you get an annual checkup for your system. The average lifespan of an HVAC unit in a commercial building is 15 years. Make sure you get the most use out of yours.
Regularly change the filters every month during peak season (aka NOW).
Control direct sunlight through windows to avoid extra heat. Trees and solar panels are a great resource for this.
Make sure your unit is the right size for your space, and isn’t working overtime to try and cool a too-large area.
