Observe the people in your building to see if you have indoor temperatures set right.

Going beyond what’s needed is unnecessary. Rather, it’s simply a waste of energy and, ultimately, money for you. For flexible temperature control, invest in programmable thermostats and consider what zoning can do for you.
Not Changing Air Filters Regularly
Air conditioning and furnace filters have to be checked and changed regularly to ensure your HVAC system is receiving ample air flow to operate as it should. Clean air filters and regular duct cleaning will prevent your heating and cooling system from working doubly hard to meet your needs and using excessive energy.
Thinking Preventive Maintenance Isn’t Needed
HVAC systems are investments for businesses, and preventive maintenance programs are investments into those investments. While it’s true that you’re looking at additional expenses upfront, you’ll actually save money (and energy) down the line with preventive maintenance. Routine HVAC care ensures that you’re able to catch problems while they’re small. preventing them from getting worse and causing bigger issues that cost more to remedy and strain the operation of your heating and cooling system. You can also schedule an energy audit along with your HVAC maintenance program to give you an idea of how your business can become more energy-efficient.
