WHY DO I NEED A PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE CONTRACT FOR MY HVAC EQUIPMENT?

Just like your automobile, HVAC requires periodic maintenance. If a car has a 60,000 mile engine warranty and the engine fails because the oil was never changed, the warranty would be in question. We take our car in for preventive maintenance, we go to the dentist for preventive dentistry and to the doctor for preventive medicine. It only makes sense to do the same for HVAC.

CAN I REDUCE ENERGY COSTS BY REPLACING AN OLDER COMMERCIAL HVAC SYSTEM?

Replacing an old, inefficient HVAC system doesn’t need to be a financial burden. It can be a company’s chance to cut energy costs. New HVAC designs waste less energy and less money. We offer some simple strategies to consider when investing in a new HVAC system: Invest in the highest-efficiency boiler, furnace, chiller, air handler and rooftop unit that your company can afford. High-efficiency systems use less energy and cost less in utility bills. Recalculate the energy load on your building. Chances are the building and its use have changed since the previous system was installed. With better building efficiency, you may be able to install a smaller and less costly HVAC system. Simple measures like reducing the lighting level, insulating windows and sealing duct leaks may decrease HVAC demands. Appliances and other equipment also can emit heat and strain your HVAC system. We can evaluate their use and energy costs. Consider automating energy management. Tennessee AIR offers various new computerized systems designed to adjust air flow and temperature based on occupancy, building use and other factors.

WHAT BASIC STEPS CAN I TAKE TO CUT ENERGY COSTS IN MY BUILDING?

Your commercial HVAC system is probably your biggest energy consumer. Tennessee Air offers regular tune-ups that are guaranteed to reduce your energy bill by at least 5 percent! If a major problem is found, your savings could be even more significant.
