Energy Savings in Commercial Buildings

When it comes to commercial buildings, the cost of energy can get quite pricey. However, there are fortunately many ways to cut down on energy costs. The first step in energy savings is recognizing where the majority of these costs are coming from. Around 70% of energy costs are totalled from HVAC and lighting systems.

Utilizing an HVAC maintenance program is a great place to start. Since HVAC systems consume a great amount of energy already, it's important to look here first for reducing energy costs. HVAC maintenance plans not only reduce costs by preventing expensive repairs, but will allow your system to work more efficiently.


These plans will include general maintenance such as cleaning filters, ducts, coils and vents. In turn, it will result in a better working system that can cool down any commercial building at a much quicker rate. Another option is to retrofit your HVAC system which will reduce the energy bill by up to 35%. 


Implementing smart building technology is the newest most up to date way to reduce your energy costs. Some examples of this would include reducing or turning off lighting and HVAC systems when not in use. By scheduling your equipment, you can save energy and money easily. 


Since lighting also makes up quite a large portion of the energy costs, it is important to note how to save here as well. LED lights are great energy savers and utilize up to 75% less energy than incandescent light bulbs. 


If your systems still aren’t exactly compatible with your energy saving desires, it may be time for an upgrade. By carefully upgrading older traditional models with newer more energy efficient models, you can cut down on energy costs in the long run.


HVAC and lighting systems consume a majority of energy costs. Maintenance of these systems can prevent costly service calls as well as allow the systems to work more effectively. Smart building technology can be implemented in order to help reduce energy bills and schedule equipment that works best for your building. Staying up to date with the most effective appliances is also a great way to reduce energy bills.
