According to ENERGY STAR, small businesses spend over $60 billion every year on energy costs. The sad thing about this is that it doesn’t have to be the case. By modernizing your equipment and optimizing your energy efficiency, you can cut this amount for your business significantly. The following are just a few tips to help you get started.
Be sure you keep your HVAC system maintained. If you don’t, it has to work harder than usual and will cost your company millions or more every year. Also, be sure that your filters are changed consistently.
Consider lighting with sensors. It’s not uncommon for people to forget to turn off lights, but that mistake can cost you a great deal of cash. By using sensors, your lights will automatically turn off after there has been no movement for a specified amount of time.
Replace office equipment with ENERGY STAR options. These are designed to use as little energy as possible, saving your company a lot of green over time.
Trade regular light bulbs with ENERGY STAR CFLs or compact fluorescent light bulbs.
Replace old equipment. Just like appliances at your home, equipment that is more than a decade old is likely using a lot more power than is necessary for operations. By updating to new equipment, you can save money. It will require an initial investment, but it will be worth it in the long run.
