When you want to start saving energy in your office, lighting is a great place to start.
If your office is like most other American offices, then your lighting accounts for over a third of your energy usage. That is why lighting is an important part of your energy strategy as a whole. However, not all lighting strategies are made equal, and when you are looking for a new lighting strategy for your office, there are several things that need to be included. Check out our energy consultant’s last blog to learn about the things we’ve already gone over, and keep reading to learn more:
#3. Make sure you have the appropriate lighting for your needs.
Overhead lights can waste a lot of energy, especially when they aren’t even necessary. Most offices could benefit from using task lighting instead of overhead lighting. Not only will this help to save you money, it will also help you direct the light you need, where you need it most.
#4. Use motion sensors and automation to minimize energy.
In a typical office, lights get left on in empty rooms all the time! Whether it’s the bathroom, conference room or even individual offices, there’s no reason to keep a light on when no one is even in the room! Install motion sensors, timers and other technology to automate your lighting system. This will ensure that the lights get turned off when necessary
