With the onset of cooler weather, you’ve now turned your attention to heating your building.
Ideally, your heating system is ready to tackle another winter season head on.
But what if it’s not?
If your heating system struggles to affordably maintain a comfortable indoor environment, it may be time to replace it.
Considering that heating commercial buildings accounts for 25 percent of total energy use – much more than lighting (10%), ventilation (10%), or cooling (9%)* – making the right decision about when to replace your system should be done with great care.
In this post, we’ll look at five reasons why you should consider a heating system replacement and what to do if a change is needed.
Reasons to Consider Replacing Your Commercial Heating System
What to Do If You Need to Replace Your Commercial Heating System
No one likes to replace a commercial heating system. It can be costly, disruptive, and it’s not as aesthetically pleasing as, say, a building remodel.
However, if you find you need to replace your system, doing so can lead to enormous benefits such as increased occupant comfort, reduced energy use, and fewer disruptive repairs.
Before making any decision, first consult a commercial heating and cooling company you trust. Ask them if they recommend you replace your heating system.
If yes, ask your consultant to discuss the various heating system options available today and make suggestions as to what makes sense for your building.
If you think your commercial heating system needs to be replaced, consider the steps outlined above and consult an industry professional.
You’ll position yourself to make the right decision, which will affect you, your building, and its occupants for years to come.
Coming soon: we’ll look at the different types of commercial heating systems.
