Stay comfortable during muggy summertimes or frigid winters with these three tips to cut electric bills. First of all maintaining your furnace and air conditioner is job one. By resetting equipment to factory specs you lower utility bills and help avoid emergency repairs. And do not forget, neglected equipment can void manufacturers warranty.
Similarly thermostats control about 50% of your utility bill!
If you have a programmable thermostat raise the temperature 7-10 degrees for 10 hours when you are away. A simple approach for real savings. US Department of Energy recommends setting thermostat can reduce your operating costs as much as 10% a year.
Certainly take advantage of equipment power settings:
Because computer and other electrical devices that are not in use pull energy and cost you money. Check the energy management settings on your office equipment. Are they set to maximize your energy savings potential? A little savings here and there adds up.
Another smart task is to weatherize your business:
Because heated and cooled air leaks out of your building check window caulking, doors, foundations, anywhere cracks are found. By sealing your building you reduce heated or cool air loss meaning your HVAC system does not have to run as much.
