As a business owner, you know how significant energy expenses can be as a part of your budget. For this reason, many businesses are implementing ways that will allow them to save money and reduce their carbon footprint. Follow this guide for heating your commercial space efficiently this season.
Easy Energy-Saving Alternatives
It doesn’t always require money to heat your commercial space more efficiently in the winter. The first tip is also the simplest. Start by adjusting your thermostat. Set the temperature to 68 degrees during occupancy and 60 to 65 degrees when the building is empty. Be sure to turn off the lights in areas that are not in use at that time. On sunny days, open the blinds so that the warmth of the sun will help provide heat to the building.
Smaller Investments for Energy Efficiency
Take the time to install programmable thermostats so that you don’t always have to remember to do it yourself. With programmable thermostats, you can create settings that will automatically adjust the temperature to your preferred settings. Power strips are designed to sense motion to turn attached equipment on or off automatically. Finally, be sure to keep your HVAC system properly maintained to ensure that it’s running properly and efficiently.
Investing in a Green Building
Invest in the building itself. Install awnings, sun-proof window film, and solar shade screens. These additions will make your commercial space more efficient for heating and cooling throughout the year. Furthermore, an energy management system will control the heating and cooling equipment automatically. Automatic systems usually equate to maximum efficiency and savings. If you’re really interested in turning your commercial space into a green building, consider installing solar power panels on the roof. This will utilize the power of the sun to reduce your expenses for heating the building greatly.
