Make greater savings on your energy bills with these tips
Every business strives to stand out from their competition, and one way to achieve so is to become more environmentally aware and make better decisions that will benefit your business’ sustainability. Along with enhancing your brand and image, you can also make considerable reduction in your energy costs.
Here are some of the things you can do now to start saving more on your energy bills whilst becoming a far more eco-friendly business:
Use energy-saving light bulbs
Greener bulbs consume less energy than regular lamps and require less frequent replacement, which will reduce energy use and save money.
Turn off computers at night.
One monitor turned off during the weekends and when it's not in use might significantly reduce your business’ power costs.
Maximise air conditioning effectiveness
If you do require air conditioning, keep doors and windows closed to maintain its effectiveness. Typically, you may also turn off the air conditioning at night.
Audit your energy usage.
Keep track of your energy usage by taking frequent metre readings throughout your place of business. This will allow you to determine which procedures consume the most energy and where you may make savings.
Invest in motion-activated lights
When a room is not in use, motion-sensitive lighting will automatically switch off. This summer, maximise natural light by leaving window blinds open during the day to save money on electricity for your business.
Create energy-saving posters
Although you are now aware of these practices, it's still necessary to inform your open staff of them as well so that they can enforce these sustainable tasks at your business. Place these informative posters around your business in places where your staff can easily access it.
Verify your energy use
A smart metre, which will provide you with real invoices rather than estimations, is available to many smaller firms. Contact your energy provider to learn if your business qualifies for a smart metre and have one installed as soon as possible.
