Your air conditioning unit
An air conditioner runs most efficiently and at lower cost to you when the air filter and condenser coil are kept clean. Cleaning professionals are your first line of defense, keeping dirt and debris from accumulating in your facility and in your ductwork. This keeps your filters and condenser coil cleaner and working well. Changing air filters on a regular basis is also advisable.
Ceiling, floor, and window fans
Fans move air, making people feel cooler so you don’t have to lower the thermostat. Like your air conditioner, they need to be dust-free. Otherwise, people in their direct path may complain and turn them off. Again, your janitorial service keeps the dirt from building up. You save on cooling.
White window treatments
Light colored drapes, blinds, or shades on south and west-facing windows reflect light and heat outward, reducing your total cooling cost. Let your cleaners keep them from getting dirty and unusable.
Like window treatments, reflective film on windows cuts down on the amount of sunlight heating your interior space. A number of window cleaning products contain chemicals that will ruin the Mylar surface or its adhesive. Scratches can result from using the wrong tools, especially when the sun has heated the surface. Your cleaning team knows how to clean the film to preserve its delicate surface and your view.
Sparkling clean windows let in more natural light. By utilizing natural lighting from north and east-facing windows, you reduce your need for artificial lighting. Lamps and light fixtures produce heat when in operation. Turn off unneeded lights to reduce your cooling costs.
Your cleaning crew will also save you money by noticing cracks in windows and sealing materials that let your cool air escape. Because they are maintaining your facility on a routine basis, changes will be more obvious.
Reduced hours of operation
Cleaning professionals can make short work of cleaning your facility, reducing the number of hours that lights are on and the air conditioner or fans are running. This reduces your utility bill.
Stop sweating over your cooling costs. Work with a professional cleaning service to make these seven cost-reducers work for you.
