Three Ways to Save on Your Company Heating Bill
September 1, 2013
Did you know, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, that Arizona has one of the highest costs for electricity in the country? Prices per kilowatt hour range from 9.69 cents to 11.3 cents. That is almost double the prices offered in places like Washington and Oregon. With the wide swing of Arizona’s weather, you have to be able to heat and cool your office on a whim. However, that can add up. Here are three ways to save on your company heating and cooling.
- Window and Door Replacement
- Preventative Air Conditioning Maintenance
- Try a Smart Thermostat
Are you aware that there are windows and doors out there that can cut down your utility bills and possibly get you a tax break? According to Energy Star, by replacing your old windows with new eco-friendly models that keep your conditioned air in, you can reduce your annual company heating and cooling costs by up to $465. You can save money, help the environment, and keep your office comfortable.
We have all had those days in the Phoenix summer where our air conditioners go haywire and leave us sweating for a few days. Luckily for us, there are high quality air conditioning services that can quickly get our systems up and running again. However, did you know that preventative maintenance can help keep your office heating and cooling system from ever having trouble? As Air Conditioning Contractors of America point out, having the control systems checked, the blowers cleaned and balanced, and your pumps regularly lubricated is an important step in avoiding unnecessary, possibly expensive visits from air conditioning repair services.
By utilizing a smart thermostat, such as those offered by Vivint, you can more effectively manage your use of air conditioning and save yourself a good bit of money while doing so. Imagine, it is Arizona’s cold season and you do not want your employees going in to a freezing office. With a smart thermostat you do not have to leave the heat on all night. You can schedule your heat to come on an hour or two before you get to work. Do so, and watch your utility bill shrink.
No matter whether it is summer or winter in Arizona, the fact of the matter is that you need to do whatever you can to make sure your employees and visiting clients are comfortable. By installing eco-friendly windows, getting preventative maintenance, and using smart thermostats, you can accomplish exactly that while saving money on your company heating. Find more on this here.
