    How We Can Help You Save On Hotel Utilities

    In the hospitality industry, energy costs can be the second biggest outlay after wages. It’s no wonder that hoteliers are always looking for ways to reduce their gas and business electricity costs.

    Whether you run a small B&B or large city centre hotel, getting those utility bills down is a constant battle. Want a quick win for your hotel? Switch energy provider with Utility Bidder. We help hotel businesses all over the country to save money. Together, we could reduce your energy bills by as much as 40%.

    Improving Energy Efficiency in Hotels

    Heating

    Heating can contribute significantly to your hotel’s energy consumption. In fact, it can account for over 40% of the energy used in your hotel or B&B. This means there’s plenty of scope to make savings.  A good place to start is by ensuring every area of the hotel or guest house is at the right temperature.

    Managing heat is particularly important in large hotels. With so many facilities, it’s a good idea to create zoned areas with their own thermostatic controls.

    If your budget can stretch to intelligent guest management systems, this could bring energy savings. In fact, you could even recoup your investment in the technology after just a few years.

    For smaller venues where that may not be feasible, ask staff to become energy champions for their areas. This will encourage them to take control of their departments, ultimately saving the business money on utilities.

    When calculating energy consumption, don’t forget about your housekeeping department. Electrical cleaning equipment and other appliances – including those used in hotel kitchens – can all be big power users. If you can make a switch to energy efficient appliances, you could save on your bills.

    Lighting

    There’s so much lighting in hotel business. It can include external signage, reception, corridors, guest rooms, bars, restaurants, function rooms, gyms, kitchens and staff rooms. And if you have people working night shifts, this means yet more lighting. It’s no wonder that lighting makes up at least 25% of your total hotel electricity bill.

    However, major savings can be made for all kinds of property types by investing in LED technology. This can now improve on previous lighting products in terms of performance as well as energy efficiency. Getting the right energy efficient lighting solution could even reduce costs by up to a third.

      The Benefits of Switching Supplier

      It’s crucial for hotel businesses to make sure they’re with the most cost-effective supplier. This is especially important considering that energy prices are rising.

      For many businesses, rolling over contracts with an existing supplier can seem like the easiest option. But this is what suppliers are hoping you will do. They know that most busy hoteliers simply won’t have the time to search for a better deal.

      Utility Bidder can be your secret weapon in the fight against rising utility expenses. All it takes is one phone call or email to make a big change to your outgoings. Simply give us a signed letter of authority and we’ll do the rest.

      Our knowledgeable team will search dozens of providers to find you the best possible costs for your hotel utilities. We guarantee to save you money on your existing bills.

      When you save money by switching to a new supplier, your dedicated account manager will handle the process for you. This means no paperwork or calling up your new supplier – we do it all. You can simply focus on running your business. Happy with your existing supplier? No problem. Utility Bidder is an expert at renegotiating renewals and we are committed to get you a better price than you’ve been quoted.

      Frequently asked questions

      While you can save hundreds of pounds by putting in some simple measures yourself, by far the best savings will come from switching your pubs gas and electricity provider.

      You will already be aware of the Minimum energy efficiency standards (MEES) now implemented in commercial buildings. There is both a public and political movement to focus on energy efficiency in a bid to reduce the carbon footprint of a pub business. As well as being kind to the planet, energy efficiency will also ensure you are being kind to your pub’s bottom line.

      Utility Bidder has saved many pub businesses considerable sums of money by helping then switch their gas and electricity providers. Add your pub’s name to the list and call time on spiraling utility costs in your pub.

      Some customers aren’t on the correct tariff for their consumption, this effects small and large businesses. We can look in to bill and usage history to determine what the best tariff is for you.
