How to reduce your business electricity bills
One of the most important decisions you will come to as a business owner is choosing your utility provider, specifically for business electricity. The provider you sign up with and the deal you choose could enable you to make some significant savings, but there are also things you can do as a company to keep those bills down.
In this article, we look at some money saving tips for companies who want to keep a lid on their electricity consumption:
1. Insulation and double glazing
When it comes to heating your workplace with your business electricity supply, you might be using more than you need to. That's if you haven't had windows double glazed, or your walls sufficiently insulated. Taking these measures in your workplace can prevent heat from escaping your building, meaning that you are using less electricity.
2. Energy-efficient lighting
Your lighting is likely to take up a sizable share of your electricity usage, especially if you are working into the night time. A good way of keeping your usage down to a minimum is with energy efficient lightbulbs, which use just a fraction of power that the standard varieties on the market do. You can also install timers for your lighting system, which can ensure that your lights are always off when you are not likely to need them.
3. Use intelligent HVAC systems
There are plenty of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems on today's market which are intelligently designed in order to use less energy. You can automate the temperature in your workspace to ensure it never goes below, or above, a certain level.
4. Occupancy sensors
If rooms within your workspace are used intermittently, it can be hard to schedule your lighting to turn on and off at the same time. In these cases, it is advisable to employ occupancy sensors, which can detect when a room is vacant or being used. That means your lighting can be switched on and off accordingly, and you won't have to use electricity when you don't need to.
Simple but effective! Those are some pointers on how you can save on your business electricity bills. Remember to shop around for the best deal, and then ensure that you aren't wasting any energy needlessly.
