Changing outdated light bulbs to energy-efficient ones will is an easy and effective way to cut energy consumption and costs. While the savings of swapping out one bulb for a more efficient model may seem insignificant, when those savings are multiplied by each and every bulb in your building, the savings can really add up. In essence, the more lights you have, the more opportunities you have to save by utilizing less energy-hungry models.
Nowadays, there are all sorts of fancy “smart technologies” out there for businesses that claim to revolutionize the game. In reality, investing in some of these smart solutions may prove valuable for your business but ultimately a programmable thermostat will do that trick. Talk to your local HVAC services about having a programmable thermostat installed, and if programmed properly, you should start seeing savings right away. You can program your system to be off or use minimal energy while no one is in your building and have it intelligently change to the most optimal temperature for comfort and efficiency.
Programmable or motion-detecting lights are a great way to make your business greener and cut energy costs. No matter how conscientious your building staff/tenants are, no one is perfect. There are bound to be lights left on when no one is around. Motion detecting or programmable lighting helps to ensure that light is only provided where and when it’s needed, drastically reducing wasted energy. Sure, someone may have to wave their arms from time to time, but the cost savings and environmental impact are absolutely worth it.
Fans and Windows
We all know that it can get HOT here in Bakersfield. But, there are also times of the year (like today, it’s 67 degrees!) where the weather is beautiful out. In temperatures in the 60s and 70s, opening some windows and running fans are a fantastic method of keeping your commercial structure cool and comfortable without the use of the building’s HVAC system. And, as an added bonus, you’ll get to enjoy the fresh air!
