Power Up Your Savings: Simple Steps to a More Energy-Efficient Workplace

No matter which size your business is, keeping costs in check is a priority. Here's a quick guide to save energy and boost your bottom line:

  • Upgrade for efficiency: Investing in energy-efficient equipment like printers, appliances, and boilers can significantly reduce energy use. The initial cost will be offset by long-term savings.
  • Empower your employees:  Educate staff on mindful energy practices like turning off lights and electronics at night. Encourage switching to energy-efficient lighting options like LEDs and fluorescents.
  • Power down, don't pay up: Leaving idle computers on overnight wastes energy and shortens their lifespan.  A typical PC and monitor setup can drain over €200 annually!  If turning them off isn't feasible, automate sleep mode to limit power use during non-working hours.
  • Invest in summer savings: An old cooling system can be an energy guzzler. Consider installing a high-efficiency unit during the off-season to benefit from long-term cost reductions.
  • Maximize your boiler: Extend the life of your current boiler with regular maintenance. Annual servicing can prevent costly breakdowns and ensure optimal efficiency. Worn pipe insulation and faulty steam traps can also drive up costs. Consult a Gas Safe registered engineer for recommended services.

By implementing these simple steps, you can create a more energy-efficient workplace, save money, and contribute to a sustainable future.
