Finding savings, no matter how minimal, is crucial to the bottom line for many small businesses. In 2023, the cost of energy will increase at a rate never seen before, therefore any increase will have a major effect. As a business owner, you know how expensive it can be to keep your building heated and lit for at least six months out of the year. In order to save money, it may be beneficial to decrease energy usage. It is possible for businesses to save up to 20% on their energy bills by making a few minor adjustments. If that weren't enough of an incentive, the government's website also claims you could qualify for tax breaks or exemptions based on factors like how much energy your firm uses. 

Given that you own a tiny company that doesn't require a lot of power, you look into purchasing equipment that is more energy-efficient. 

Some suggestions for cutting energy expenditures at your company by Commercial Electrician: 

Put in LED bulbs. 

An estimated 58,000 TWh annually, or 18% of total energy consumption, is used for lighting. About 70% of that is due to commercial illumination. LED lamps use about 80 percent less energy than standard incandescent lighting. They initially cost more but save money over the long term compared to using regular incandescent bulbs. Therefore, switching to LED would save money for companies on their monthly electricity expenses. 

Close your laptops and turn off your screens before bed. 

Half of an office's electricity bill is attributable to the use of computers and monitors. The typical power consumption of a computer is 40 watts (W) while in use, and 20 to 30 watts (W) while in standby; monitors require 80 W while in operation, and only 10 to 15 W while idle. While in standby mode, computers still consume electricity, much like many other electrical appliances. When powered down, but still connected to the wall, the typical desktop computer consumes between 1.5W and 3W. Saving money on electricity by turning off screens and computers when not in use. 

Make the switch to portable computers. 

In comparison to desktop computers, laptops have a significantly lower energy footprint. While fuel efficiency may vary by model, these vehicles are more eco-friendly in general. 

You may prevent draughts by installing double glazing or draught-proofing your windows. 

If you don't own the property and are only renting, this may not be possible. In any case, there are low-cost measures you may do to reduce draughts and save money on heating bills. 

Set up a Solar Energy System 

Owning property with the suitable roof may make this a viable choice. 

Invest in a better heating system. 

Inefficient heating systems include those that use old gas boilers or archaic electrical heating systems. Even after factoring in the price of the upgrade, a new boiler can have a significant impact on your monthly energy bills and your budget. 

Refine your lighting systems. 

Put in motion detectors that start working as soon as people enter the room. These are ideal for use as outdoor lights.
