Program Your Thermostats: Program your thermostat to match your business hours. For unoccupied buildings, turn down to 50 degrees to save energy while keeping pipes from freezing.
Seal Up Windows and Doors: Add weatherstrips or caulking around your windows and doors to prevent drafts and air leaks. If you see daylight around your doors, that means cold air can get in and heated air out – don’t pay to heat the outdoors!
Wrap Pipes: Insulate your pipes with pipe wrap to keep your pipes from freezing and also prevent heat loss so your equipment doesn’t have to run longer and/or harder than necessary.
Inspect HVAC Units: Check economizers are working, verify dampers are opening and closing properly and are not stuck in a stationary position to get the most out of your heating and cooling systems .
