See Where Your Energy Dollar Goes
Ever wondered how your business uses energy? The chart below highlights the biggest energy users in Office Buildings.
This chart shows where the most energy is used in a typical large commercial building. Lighting and HVAC account for over 60% of energy use.
|Consider the following energy saving tips|
Installing installation of LEDs in common areas and changing out T8’s with T12 fluorescent lamps and magnetic ballasts with T8 or T5 tubes provides substantial energy savings with minimal impact on lighting quality.
Switch to variable-speed drives, allowing HVAC A/C motors to run slower than standard motors, increasing operating efficiency.
Install occupancy sensors in general usage areas so that lights turn on only when the area is occupied and automatically turn off when the area is not.
Utilizing induction lighting and quality LED street lighting may significantly enhance lifespan, reduce energy consumption and lower maintenance costs.
Installing water flow restrictors and aerators, especially in sink faucets, lowers water-heating costs as well as water usage.
