Reduce Energy Costs by Employing Simple Energy Saving Solutions

Small businesses can significantly reduce their energy costs by employing smart, energy efficient solutions. See below for our top energy efficient solutions for small businesses.

Reduce Peak Demand

One of the best ways to run a more energy efficient office is to reduce your peak demand. The phrase “peak demand” refers to the hours in a day when energy usage is at its highest. Peak demand times are typically normal office hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). You can reduce your demand during this time by:

  • Staggering work hours / start times
  • Running heavy equipment and factory equipment during the evening and early morning hours
  • Using energy more efficiently at all hours

Keeping Vents Clear

One of the easiest ways to increase your business’ energy efficiency is to ensure that your HVAC units don’t have to work as hard to keep your work space comfortable. Keep your vents clear of desks, boxes and other office equipment, and keep the air flowing.

Running Fans

You can reduce your energy usage simply and easily by running fans in offices, warehouses, showrooms and kitchens. Fans keep air flowing so your HVAC unit can run more efficiently.

Turning Off Equipment When Not in Use

An energy efficient office is one that shuts down at the end of the work day. Instruct employees to turn off their PCs when they leave for the day, and make sure that there’s a system in place to turn off lights, fans and other equipment when not in use.

Monitoring the Thermostat

Set your thermostat to a lower temperature in winter and a higher temperature in summer. In both cases, you’re using less power and running a more energy efficient workplace.
