SAVING ENERGY & MONEY TIPS
HOW CAN WE HELP YOU TO STOP WASTING ENERGY AND WATER AND HELP YOU SAVE MONEY?
Talk to similar businesses – are their bills on a level with yours?
Only light the areas required, and use motion sensors on all lights so they switch off when not in use.
Never leave appliances on standby mode. This costs you money and you're effectively throwing your money away.
If you have multi-rate meters, for example a cheaper night rate, try to use your appliances at night when the cheaper rate has kicked in.
Ensure you have the correct insulation. Use government grants wherever possible to insulate all possible areas and check that seals on all windows and doors are in good repair.
Check your room, radiator and water thermostats are set on timers and that they set to the correct temperature.
Ensure you use timers on your central heating.
Ensure you adjust your timers to coincide with the season of the year. Make a diary note to alter them regularly, especially if we are having unusual weather for the time of year.
Switch off radiators in areas that are not being used.
Ensure water is not heated to more than the recommended 60 degrees centigrade, as higher is wasting you unnecessary money.
At least once a month take meter reads, even on smart meters, to ensure accurate billing. Check consumption compared to bills, or even better ask us to check them for you.
Fit low energy or LED lighting – ask us and we can advise the best options available at the time, as these low energy bulbs are constantly improving to save you money.
Finally, train and inform staff – knowledge is important but they are not paying the bills, so it is not first hand for them to think of reducing bills. If your staff are trained correctly they will look out for all our tips when you're not around. At the end of the day, the more they save you the more secure their jobs become. Ask us about our free staff training talks.
