Don’t let hidden energy waters drive up your utility bills!
Are you sick of paying high energy bills? If so, a great place to start addressing the problem is by knowing about the hidden energy wasters around your office. Unfortunately, there are probably many things are your office that are wasting energy without you even realizing it! The following is a list from our talented energy consultants of the top energy wasters that you need to be aware of around your office:
#1. Space Heaters
If you keep your office so cool that your employees utilize space heaters to stay warm, you’re likely wasting a whole lot of energy. Not only does running both the AC and the space heater at the same time waste energy, it also makes it difficult to keep the office at the ideal temperature.
#2. Open Windows and Doors
Oftentimes, employees will open doors or windows in offices or retail stores to try to make the temperature more comfortable. If you are running your HVAC system, all of the cool or warm air will literally be going out the window, so make sure you keep windows and doors closed.
#3. Improper HVAC Maintenance
If you don’t keep your commercial HVAC system properly maintained, it can waste a lot of energy. In fact, an improperly maintained HVAC system will often heat and cool at the same time, which is a huge waste of energy.
These are just a few of the many hidden energy wasters that you need to be aware of around your office. Stay tuned for our next blog to learn more.
