Install Lighting Sensors
Lighting sensors limit electricity waste. It is frustrating to learn a light was left on in an empty room and drives the bill up for no reason. Motion sensors are a simple solution. Lighting sensors turn off the lights when a room is empty and back on when it senses motion. These sensors save money without inhibiting workflow.
Whether you install sensors in supply closets, bathrooms, or throughout an office complex, we recommend pairing this technology with energy-efficient LED bulbs. They use less power, and last longer – adding another layer of financial benefit.
Install Smart Thermostats
Smart thermostats can be among the most important energy-saving upgrades for your company. Smart thermostats come in many levels of complexity, but the main reason a smart thermostat saves energy is because of the control it gives you. Program your smart thermostat to turn on and off during specific times of the day. Some also provide room-specific controls. You’ll always have absolute control over the temperature throughout your building.
The easy management of your thermostat extends to your phone, too. Having such specific control and programmable preferences has saved many companies thousands of dollars on electricity bills and drastically reduced their carbon footprint.
Take Advantage of Natural Light
Don’t let natural light go to waste in your space. Letting light through the windows is good for your employees’ health and forego the need for overhead lights till the sun is overhead. Turn off your light sensors till the sun is up and reap the benefits of sun-produced heat when it is cold.
Choose Energy-Efficient Equipment
Take into consideration the energy-efficient equipment options available for your business before buying. If you are a print-heavy business, look for an Energy Star certified printer. Break room items should also offer energy-saving features. Go the extra mile to make sure all the lights have LED bulbs.
