Yes, we said 4.5.
If you’re a restaurant owner, you should know that the majority of that energy goes to powering heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. In fact, restaurants use over twice as much power per square foot than almost any other commercial property!
To keep your customers happy, HVAC should be a top priority right behind food prep when it comes to your business’s energy consumption.
Our HVAC technicians share the best ways to save money and energy to make your business more sustainable and cost-effective while keeping your community comfortable while they fill up on good food.
1. Invest in the Correctly Sized Unit
Over 25% of rooftop industrial HVAC systems are oversized, meaning they aren’t operating efficiently. This can result in faster wear and tear and higher energy spending, which will lose you money.
Reach out to our professionals at ACHV Services to figure out what size unit would be best for your property.
2. Use Programmable Thermostats
A programmable thermostat is, in our opinion, one of the best adjustments you can make to save money on HVAC. These devices continuously monitor the atmosphere and adjust accordingly.
3. Pay Attention to the Restrooms
Restroom ventilation should run at all times, for clear reasons. Using ENERGY STAR-qualified vent fans can reduce your power usage by up to 70%!
To switch up your HVAC system to maximize efficiency and improve your company’s financial health, call our reliable technicians today!
4. Shut It Down When Not in Use
Kitchen equipment can generate a lot of heat in your space, so when not in use, shut down appliances. Otherwise, your HVAC system will have to do a lot of extra work to neutralize the temperature.
4.5 Take Advantage of Patio Heaters
We love heating as much as we do cooling. So, here’s your bonus tip for your restaurant!
You can’t keep your customers on the patio warm with your HVAC. For our occasional chilly Florida nights, invest in quality patio heaters that make people feel as comfortable outside as they do inside.
Keep Your Air from Cooking
No one wants to feel muggy and uncomfortable when they visit a restaurant for a tasty meal. At the same time, your business needs to make smart moves to boost your profits. Increase your return on investments by consulting our reliable HVAC technicians! Using our suggestions will help you support your business now and for years to come.
