Have an Energy Audit
One of the first steps you should take to spend less is to have an energy audit performed. You need a professional to inspect your equipment and audit the equipment. If you have an older system, these audits are beneficial. They can tell you how much energy you use, and if you need any repairs or replacements, you can handle them after the audit.
Ask for HVAC Monitoring
If you have HVAC monitoring equipment, you can track how much you spend on HVAC service. When you monitor your HVAC costs, you are more likely to spot any weaknesses in your system. you can also determine which areas of the building need more or less heat. Monitoring allows you to optimize your airflow by tracking how much air you need in each area.
