Energy-Saving HVAC Solutions for Your Cincinnati Business


It’s a common quality most business owners share: a desire to save money when it comes to operations. While we often turn to cost-saving strategies for physical items, such as finding a different supplier for necessary products, we tend to overlook the intangible expenses, such as energy use.

For most Cincinnati businesses, their commercial HVAC equipment is the likely consumer of the majority of the energy it takes to run the operation. Investing in ways to make these systems more efficient can make your business more profitable. Below are some HVAC solutions proven to help you save.

Zoning and Programmable Thermostats

Are you heating and cooling your entire commercial space based off one thermostat? Do you have employees in the office huddled next to space heaters while those in the warehouse are sweating it out? This not only is an inefficient use of HVAC energy, but it’s likely also hampering the productivity of your employees.

Zoning your commercial HVAC systems is a proven method which will help you lower your building’s energy consumption while keeping your employees comfortable and productive. Zoning systems can be retrofit to your existing HVAC systems or installed when a new commercial heating or air system is placed in service. Your commercial building will be divided into zones based on characteristics such as use and construction, and the zoning system will allow you to control each area independently of the others.

Installing a zoning system is an excellent step toward heating and cooling efficiency. By combining such a system with other powerful HVAC tools, you can boost your savings even more. Since every zone will have its own thermostat, utilize programmable models with temperature schedules set specifically for the zone – if your office is only staffed until 5 pm, initiate temperature setbacks at this time, for example.

Nelson Comfort is here to help you maximize the efficiency of your Cincinnati commercial HVAC systems. For professional installation of the above solutions and commercial HVAC equipment, please call us today to schedule a consultation.
