Energy-saving tips for your business

Try these simple tips to trim winter energy bills for your business.

Thermostat

Adjust your thermostat

When you’re in the office, set your thermostat as low as is comfortable. At night or when you’re out, turn it back up 10-15 degrees to save about 10% a year.

Shop and save

Upgrade your lighting

Using LED lighting could help your business save year-round, especially if you’re decorating the office for the holidays. Occupancy sensors can also help you optimize your energy use in areas without much traffic.

Power Down

Power down

Switch off or power down your electronic devices on unused equipment when not in use. Turning off one computer and monitor nightly and on weekends can save up to $80 a year – savings like these could really add up!

adjust your water heating

Weatherize your business

Weather strip and caulk drafty doors and windows to keep in the heat when you need it most. Insulating your business can also help keep the heat or cool air in year-round.

Tune your HVAC

Tune your HVAC

Just as a tune-up for your car can improve your gas mileage, a yearly tune-up of your heating and cooling system can improve efficiency and comfort.

Shift your use

Maintain and repair

The winter season can be a great time to get to all those “energy-leaks” fixed or upgrade your facilities to be more energy-efficient.
