If your business is equipped with ceiling fans, use them frequently to take some of the load off your HVAC system. Make sure to switch their blades to rotate counter-clockwise in the summer so it pushes the cool air back down.
Switch to LED lightbulbs wherever possible. In addition to using 50% less energy, they also have a much longer lifespan overall and help save on replacement purchases.
Install switch plate occupancy sensors to automatically turn off lighting when no one is present and back on when people return.
Turn off machines and equipment when you’re not using them; enable automatic sleep timers or manually turn monitors off if you’re heading out.
Buy and use ENERGY STAR®-certified products; the label indicates the most energy-efficient computers, printers, copiers, refrigerators, windows, thermostats, ceiling fans, and other equipment.
Replace any single-pane, clear windows with double-pane windows, as the former are poor insulators and allow heat from the sun to enter your building.
If your building has an automation system, try cooling your building at night with outside air. This can help lower the overall temperature and eases the cooling load during the day.
Invest in a smart thermostat, as they can learn your temperature preferences and establish a schedule that automatically adjusts to energy-saving temperatures when people are away.
