Here are some energy saving tips that could help your business save on your energy expenses during the summer and all year round.

Laptop

  • Lower the power saving settings on your computer.
  • Powersave enable your computer monitors, not just screensaver.
  • Consider having employees use lap top computers since they use up to 90 percent less energy than a standard computer.
  • Turn off your computers and any other office equipment when you’re not using them, especially overnight and weekends.
  • Replace your incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent lights.
  • A compact fluorescent light uses 75% less electricity to produce the same amount of light as an incandescent bulb.
  • Use task lighting instead of overhead lighting, and light only those areas that are needed at the time.

Thermostat

  • Use a programmable thermostat and make it easy to adjust the settings as well as regulate the temperature when you are closed to avoid unnecessary heating and cooling costs.
  • Programmable thermostats allow you to set the temperatures in your building according to various different factors.
  • The thermostat’s settings can be programmed so temperature changes can be repeated each day/week or you can override the programming when desired and set the temperature manually.
  • Locating your window air conditioner on the shady side of the building will help it operate more efficiently and save energy.
