Winterize your commercial heating system.
Keep your heating unit working efficiently this winter.
Monday, November 07, 2022
A large part of building utility costs is the HVAC system. Here are a few tips on what you can do to keep your costs low and ensure it's running at peak efficiency, especially during the winter months.
- Air Filters: If these are too dirty, the system has to work much harder to get the air through the vents. This will use up more energy and cost you more to heat (or cool) the building. Changing the air filters will keep it running efficiently and keep the costs lower.
- Thermostat: If it's an older version, they may not be as accurate as they used to be. Sensors may need to be adjusted, as well. A digital thermostat is easier to regulate so you may want to switch them out for 'smart' versions.
- Outdoor parts: Inspect any portion of the system that is outside of the building. Our colder temps are very hard on equipment. Check air vents for anything that can block the flow and condensation traps should be empty and dry so they don't freeze.
- Heating elements: have burners cleaned and inspected for efficiency. For parts that use water as a heating element, make sure the pipes are clean of mold or condensation. Check for drafts where you could be losing heat.
- Air flow: make sure the airways are not restricted. Clean vents to prevent them from working too hard to minimize wear and tear on the system.

"A 'best for the airport' approach."
They most recently redesigned our aircraft lavatory dumping facility to address our heating concerns. This facility, with its high gaseous presence is now running at optimum performance. They take a 'best for the airport' approach and offer advice and solutions that gain efficiencies in both financial and people resources. Our tenants and restaurants have also retained their services for all their plumbing and HVAC needs.

“Quality of workmanship was excellent.”
We recently worked with Millenium on the construction and start-up of a medium sized industrial pilot plant near Edmonton. Their on-site staff was professional and the quality of workmanship was excellent. They demonstrated an approach of problem solving throughout the process. We would certainly be pleased to work with them on future projects.

“I was quite impressed.”
We had a tour of a newly built industrial cannabis facility. I have visited several cannabis facilities, as well as pharmaceutical plants and I must say, I was quite impressed. The installation is, in my opinion, of the highest quality covering many operational details. I am confident in recommending Millenium.
