As a business owner, you know that there is always room for improvement. This is especially true when it comes to power consumption. Energy inefficiencies can be found in lighting, heating and cooling, manufacturing, and virtually everywhere else.
Energy waste isn’t just bad for the environment, it’s bad for your bottom line. Making these five investments may cost you a little bit of money up front, but they are all capable of quickly paying for themselves with the energy savings they provide.
LED Light Bulbs
If you still use incandescent light bulbs, you are doing a disservice to your company and the environment. These old, inefficient light bulbs use tons of energy and emit heat as they operate. Upgrading to LED bulbs can cut your lighting costs by 80% or more.
Low Emissivity Windows
Low emissivity windows – also known as “low e” – are coated in a special film that differentiates them from normal windows. This coating is thinner than a human hair, but reflects the sun’s infrared and ultraviolet rays. This keeps the heat out during the summer and in during the winter, helping you save money all year long.
You would be surprised by how much energy is wasted in an empty office. Installing motion detectors throughout your facility will help reduce this energy waste by cutting off the lights when they aren’t needed.
Energy Star Equipment
Any business can take advantage of Energy Star equipment. Energy Star products have been tested by the EPA and proven to yield significant energy savings. Energy Star tags can be found on appliances, heating and cooling equipment, computers, and more.
Power Monitoring Equipment
Power monitoring equipment provides you with a real-time view of how much energy your facility is consuming. You can use this information to identify and eliminate inefficiencies in your operations – no matter where they come from. This helps you cut operating costs, improve profit margin, and reduce your impact on the environment.
