5 Quick Tips for Powerful Commercial Heating

If your building or establishment is comfortable right now, it’s likely due to a powerful industrial heater that is hard at work. Whether you’ve got an industrial furnace or a series of modular heat pumps, we recommend that you take a second to fully appreciate how beautiful that is. All of the customers, employees, tenants, and guests you have here can all be happy due to the comfort that your commercial heating in Hampton, NJ provides!

However, it could be working against some forces (other than the outdoor temperature) that are causing your building to lose it’s comfortable status. Perhaps you’ve got some ice building up on the outdoor components, or maybe your building’s insulation isn’t as good as it should be.

Simply put, here are 5 quick tips that can help your commercial heating system reach its full potential. Just make sure you have a licensed professional address your urgent heating needs.

1. Keep Things Clear and Easy to Inspect

Your heating system not only requires proper ventilation, but it also needs to be easy for a professional to inspect. Take a walk through your building and monitor your heating equipment. If you notice any vents, ductwork, or even the system itself being obstructed by furniture, storage, equipment, or anything else, then you might want to try and move it out of the way. Always work to keep things clear enough for you to easily see.

2. Evaluate System Efficiency

This one is for all the bookkeepers out there. If you’ve been keeping record of your utility bills over the past months or years, why not look at them altogether?

This can clue you in on possible issues your heating system might be experiencing. Perhaps you’ve noticed that there’s a general 5% increase in costs year over year for heating bills alone. This could signify that you haven’t gotten the system maintained in years and it’s starting to degrade. Or, perhaps it desperately needs to be repaired.

3. Think About Your Building’s Space

Have you had any recent additions to your commercial space? This could be dramatically impacting your commercial heating system because it’s sized according to the space it was set up in. Even just a few extra hundred square feet can cause your system to become overworked and ineffective.

4. Examine Insulation

One of the core components of your building’s comfort integrity is the insulation. Without proper insulation, all of the heat that would be created by your commercial heater would be sent to the outside and you’d be cold and uncomfortable.

It might be a good idea to see if there are any cracks, leaks, openings, or holes in your building’s insulation. Getting these addressed could save you money and keep things cozy.
