Top Ten energy saving tips for business
Have you ever wondered what ways exist of reducing expenses other than firing people? Here is a new concept for you – Energy Management. Energy management involves finding ways to optimize your energy usage so that you’re using – and subsequently paying for – only that amount of energy which your business just cannot do without.
Here are 10 energy saving tips that can help you with this:
1. Switch off all equipment not in use
Whenever possible, ensure that all machines are switched off when they are not in use. Remember, even the stand by mode consumes some amount of power that can add significantly to your bills over the long term.
2. Reduce lighting expenses
You will be surprised to see how much you can save by simply turning off lights when they are not in use. If you’re working in one corner of your room, and need one light to do your work effectively, you should use just that. You can save a lot by avoiding using other lights in the room. Moreover, having more efficient LED lights installed in place of traditional bulbs could do wonders to your energy saving efforts.
Daylighting is of great help in reducing energy related costs. If you’re in an area where you can make use of sunlight, such a system could prove very effective in reducing the burden of lighting during the day on traditional bulbs. A very innovative way of reducing expenses, isn’t it? It is actually quite old-school, and has only been ‘rediscovered’ by modern architects.
4. Use Biodiesel oil
For getting goods transported, you can make use of Biodiesel oil in diesel engines. Such a resource will save on some petroleum cost.
5. Use energy efficient equipment
If you notice that some of the equipment you’re currently using are old, you should invest and get better equipment to increase output. It might be an additional expense at the moment, but over time, you will see the results in increased productivity, and reduced energy consumption.
6. Reduce fuel usage
If you require transporting products to clients, proper maintenance of your vehicles is a must. This will help in reducing fuel usage.
7. Reduce thermal heating
You can reduce expenses significantly if you turn your thermostat down by about one degree.
8. Find out and plug energy leakage
One of the best ways to do this would be to turn off every gadget for an hour or two, and then to check the reading of your energy meter. If the meter still shows some consumption, you know you’ve got a leak or two
9. Buy smart meters
These are phenomenal devices that can accurately record your energy consumption and provide you with comprehensive reports of your energy usage patterns. After all, if you don’t know how you use your energy, how will you find out ways of reducing its usage?
