Last blog post we talked about lighting and office equipment and what you can do to stem the flow of cash out your business’ door from those hungry beasts.
This post we thought we’d continue on the same track of small business energy efficiencies – looking at three more big users of energy in the workplace. Heating/cooling, refrigeration and hot water. No point in donating more cash than you have to, to your power company.
So without further ado, let’s continue.
This is likely to be your biggest energy user – which means, it’s also represents the greatest potential to save cash. On a hot summer’s day, an air conditioner is a must (especially in Australia). Small business owners (and home owners) just need to be aware of how to use them most efficiently.
Another big energy user! If you’re a owner of a restaurant, cafe, convenience store or anything similar – reducing your refrigeration usage will save you a lot – trust me!
Make every drop count. No matter how must you use, it pays to cut back on unnecessary water and energy use. So make it count.
So there you have it – what you need to look out for and five great tips on how to save energy.
Not only will the small business energy efficiencies you find save you on costs and enhance your contribution to preserving our environment, there are a huge amount of hidden indirect benefits as well. Hint: customers will love your enthusiasm!
