How to Conserve Energy in the Workplace

Conserving energy in the workplace not only protects the environment, it also reduces operating costs. There are many little things you can do that will have a significant impact on energy consumption without causing discomfort or large changes to your routine.

Heating, for example, is one of the largest costs associated with an office structure. Updating equipment to energy efficient models will greatly reduce consumption and cost. If a replacement is not in the budget at this time, a little maintenance can go a long way. Make sure filters are clean, vents are not restricted and a programmable thermostat is installed. Set temperatures for much colder settings at night when no one is present and will not be affected by the temperature.

Lighting is also a very large expense. An easy way to reduce lighting costs and consumption is to change your florescent lighting fixtures into ones that can use reduced energy consuming equivalent bulbs. These bulbs provide the same amount of light at a fraction of the cost.

Review your IT components. Is it really necessary to have as many printers, copiers, scanners, or other components as you currently have? Each one of these devices uses energy. Have your office networked and streamline the functions to one or two main devices. This will reduce your energy consumption and make your office less cluttered.

Start the New Year right with the right office setting, only the equipment you really need and with better grasp on heating and air systems. Contact Windy City Air at 702.932.7284 for more information on Las Vegas HVAC services.
