Small business energy saving tips
For small businesses, it is critical to make sure they run as efficiently as possible. Even small savings per month can generate a lot of extra cash throughout the year.
Once you have used Love Energy Savings to navigate the tricky energy market and got a great deal for your business, it’s worth considering the energy you use and how your business can become more energy efficient – guaranteeing to save you even more money.
Energy efficient lighting
Whether you run a hairdresser, café, workshop or any other type of business, you’re likely to use between 5% and 20% of your annual energy consumption on lighting.
You don’t need to spend any money to consider when your lights are on. If you operate during the day but leave your lights on overnight, you are paying for electricity unnecessarily. Get into the habit of switching off lights when you are not using them, and while you are thinking about it unplug electronic devices when not in use as they also use a lot of power.
Perhaps the best way to ensure you save money on your annual electricity bills is to invest in LED lighting. Although they have a reputation as being expensive, they are now about as cheap as 60 watt alternatives.
LEDs are reliable, available in a range of sizes and styles and critically – are very reliable and long-lasting, as much as 25 times longer lasting than standard halogen bulbs.
Manage your tools, don’t let them manage you.
We are all increasingly reliant on our phones, computers and other electronic devices. For many businesses, it can be difficult to keep track of the energy consumption of these devices.
It is really worth considering the devices that you use, as well as the tools or machinery you may operate, and take steps to manage your consumption to reduce your energy bills.
When you buy new devices and tools, consider the energy efficiency when you are deciding what to buy, tools that have a higher energy efficiency rating will save you money over the course of their use.
The critical component is to make sure that devices are turned off when not in use, and in the case of electronic chargers or equipment are unplugged. As well as saving you money, this also decreases the risks of fire.
