Federal and state regulations mandate certain requirements of buildings around the country, particularly so when it concerns the commercial sector. Because commercial and industrial buildings consume so much energy, keeping these companies up to date on all energy efficiency standards is key to reducing carbon footprints and eliminating unnecessary waste of electricity.
With the new year upon us, there's never a better time than now to recommit to make your company a fully sustainable business. The best way to do this is to identify where most of your energy is being consumed. In many cases, HVAC systems make up a large portion of a business's total utility costs, which means your focus should be on replacing parts that aren't working effectively and updating your system as a whole.
To do this, it's necessary to look at how well your HVAC coils are performing. In a matter of weeks, coils can become damaged due to corrosion. However, many companies are not aware of just how susceptible their HVAC systems are to outside elements. HVAC coils need to be cleaned often and routine maintenance checks are the first step in keeping your coils optimized.
If the coils are rusted or contain holes, then it's best to purchase HVAC replacement coils. By installing these new parts, the system as a whole will produce cleaner air, regulate temperatures more effectively and require less electricity to power. This not only saves your company money in the long run, but it's also a necessary step in the right direction toward sustainability.
Act now to increase efficiency
Once new coils are selected, you'll want to keep your long term goals in mind. Rather than replacing one set of coils for another, opt for HVAC coil coatings as well. Under this procedure, coils are covered in a protective layer of coating so they can better withstand buildup and corrosion. Because of this added coating, coils are more durable and have a much longer lifespan.
This can go a long way in cutting down on excessive repair costs in the future while also creating a working strategy for efficiency moving forward. With coated coils, air, water and refrigerants are less likely to collect and attach to the walls of the coils due to coating's hydrophobic properties.
As your HVAC system is rebooted with more efficient materials, you'll soon start to see results in the form of less energy waste. When each part of an HVAC unit is working cohesively, less electricity is consumed and companies can reinvest this savings into other areas. For example, businesses can install solar panels or renovate parts of their buildings with green materials. In total, these efforts have less of an impact on the environment, which is great for business and the surrounding community.
