As a business owner responsible for a large commercial building, you have a lot on your plate. One of your responsibilities is keeping your employees comfortable without going bankrupt due to high electricity costs. Luckily, there are specific things you can do to supply energy to your commercial building more efficiently. Just follow these three tips:
Supply Employees with Smart Power Strips
Smart power strips are a great way to counteract “vampire devices” that suck up energy even when they aren’t in use. Smart power devices can detect which electronic devices throughout the building are actually being used, and temporarily cuts power to just those devices.
Activate System Standby for Computers
Have your IT department make sure that all computers in the building are set to go into standby mode automatically when not in use, especially at night when the business is closed. Just this simple action can save up to $75 per computer annually, which quickly adds up when you have a large business.
Have Your HVAC System Inspected Regularly
An important money and energy-saving tip is to have your HVAC system inspected each fall and spring, as well as anytime you notice problems with how your system is running. By having a qualified HVAC company inspect your system, you will ensure that problems are addressed and repairs made before they become more serious and more expensive to fix. The repair expert will identify areas of inefficiency and help correct them to make sure your building stays warm all winter without losing heat or wasting energy.
By being proactive, you can keep your employees comfortable and your large office running efficiently without breaking the bank due to high energy costs. Don’t forget to contact us to learn how we can help with all your commercial HVAC needs.
