How We Can Help Cut Your Energy Costs
A few simple ways we can help you cut your energy costs include:
- Installing LED lighting fixtures and emergency lighting. Companies that switch from incandescent or halogen lighting will see a difference in cost on their energy bill each month. Switching out just 10 bulbs to LEDs can save you almost $350 a year. LED bulbs also last up to 10 times longer and are more durable, suffering less damage when bumped or exposed to heat or cold.
- Adding integrated lighting and refrigeration controls. Integrated lighting only lights up the refrigeration system when the door is open, saving energy. It also allows your refrigeration system to run at a more level temperature, keeping products at the right temperature without over- or under-cooling.
- Installing occupancy sensors for lighting. These sensors can save a decent amount on energy costs depending on the type of area they are installed in. Warehouses, conference rooms, hallways, restrooms and storage areas yield the most savings with an average energy saving of 45–60%.
- Upgrading HVAC systems with integrated controls. An integrated control system lets you efficiently control temperature, ventilation and other systems all at once and with some systems, even remotely.
- Scheduling regular HVAC maintenance to improve its overall efficiency. Regular maintenance includes changing air filters, which when dirty can restrict airflow, making your machine work harder and expend more energy. Cleaning the coils also saves energy by allowing better heat transfer.
- Insulating pipes. Insulating your pipes can save you money on natural gas by keeping water warmer as it travels through your building. On average, you can save almost $4 per foot of insulated pipe per year, which adds up quickly in a commercial building.
