Making Your Business More Energy Efficient 

Looking to make your business more energy efficient? Businesses often have large buildings that can be difficult to heat and use a huge amount of energy each day. In addition to costing your company a fortune (especially right now), this is also harming the planet and could be damaging your reputation. So, what steps can you take to make your business more energy efficient?

Boiler Efficiency

Often, a business struggles with energy efficiency due to an old boiler. The older the boiler, the less efficient it will be and this could be costing your business a lot more money than is necessary. A new electric boiler will require far less energy, which will reduce your environmental impact while also helping you to slash your energy bills. Newer boilers will also have fewer issues and this should make it easier to keep your office space at a comfortable temperature.

Insulation

Energy loss can be a major issue in large buildings, which is why insulation is so important. In particular, a quarter of energy can be lost through the roof, so it is a good idea to invest in roof insulation. This will help you to make long-term savings, reduce your environmental impact and also make it easier to maintain a comfortable temperature in the office throughout the year. 

Appliances

In a typical office, there will be appliances that are used constantly throughout the day. This can equate to an enormous amount of energy being used, which is why it is intelligent to look for energy-efficient appliances. You can find energy-efficient laptops, monitors and kitchen appliances that will slash your daily energy consumption and help you to make significant long-term savings. Additionally, make sure that staff get into the habit of turning off appliances when not in use and at the end of the day. 

Lighting

Leading on from this, you should also consider the lighting that you use in the office. You can significantly reduce your energy usage by switching to LED bulbs, which are a lot more efficient and will last longer. You could also opt for motion-activated lighting in areas like hallways, which will reduce wasted energy. You should also try to maximise natural light so that you rely less on artificial lighting in the office.

Many offices use an enormous amount of energy each day, which can cost your business a lot of money as well as damage the environment. Combining some of these methods together will help you to slash your energy usage, which will help you to make savings and give you peace of mind knowing that you are minimising your environmental impact.
