8. Maximum efficiency
Choose electronic devices with maximum efficiency, with an A rating on their energy label. It is estimated that an A-scale device can consume 55% less than other appliances without this rating.
Install timers in bathrooms, common areas and hallways. They will prevent lights remaining switched on when nobody needs them or people accidentally forgetting to turn them off.
10. Switches by areas
If you place switches by functional areas, you will avoid having your entire room illuminated when there is just one activity being carried out in one corner. In this way, you will have better control over which lights are on and you can save a lot of energy.
11. Programme your air conditioning system
Optimise your air conditioning according to your business hours and required temperatures. However, you can always count on us to advise on your business’s air conditioning.
12. Clean air conditioning filters
You need to clean our air conditioning or heating filters regularly. On many occasions, devices do not work 100%, i.e., they do not cool or heat sufficiently, due to obstructions. Therefore, take a look at the manufacturer's instructions or consult a technician to perform this cleaning procedure properly.
13. Sunshades or Venetian blinds
Install sunshades in windows that are most exposed to the sun, thus preventing your room from overheating. There are other sunshade or Venetian systems that will help you isolate whilst maximising the presence of natural light.
Maintenance is basic to optimise your business’s energy efficiency. Check the boiler thoroughly, as well as the insulation and electrical installation. Any fault in these areas can increase your consumption and bills.
It is essential to make your staff aware of the importance of sustainability: they are responsible for achieving true energy efficiency.
