January is the month where we make resolutions for the coming year and intend to do our best to keep them. January 10th also marks National Cut Your Energy Costs Day. Why not ring in the New Year by conducting an audit of your energy consumption and take the necessary steps to reduce your energy spend?
Energy Conservation Doesn’t Have to Be Complicated
Lowering your energy costs can add more money back into your wallet and lead to longer-life for your equipment and increased operational efficiency. Take a moment to assess your energy consumption and follow these easy steps to get on the road to savings.
Get an energy audit: Our company offers free business energy audits. We can help you figure out where your money is going every month, how to increase your energy efficiency and ways to adjust your electric bill.
Invest in a programmable thermostat: A programmable thermostat is an inexpensive improvement that will pay for itself time and time again and makes “cents” for buildings of all sizes. Most models will allow you to preset and select temperatures by the hour for every day of the week and can even be operated remotely.
Insulate leaks: Patching leaks, employing weather-stripping techniques and investing in energy-efficient windows all guarantee that your money won’t be going out the door—literally.
Install LED light bulbs: Energy-efficient bulbs aren’t just a smart way to lower your electric bill in the short term; their extended service life will help you save in the long-term, too.
Trust the Experts in Energy Efficiency
While these tips are excellent ways to reduce energy costs, we think the best tip of all is to invest in a combined heat and power (CHP) system. With nearly 1,000 cogeneration system installations in the United States since our launch in 1985, Aegis Energy, EDF Group has helped countless clients enjoy the benefits of reduced energy costs and increased sustainability efforts.
We hope that you will make the most of National Cut Your Energy Costs Day by evaluating your energy costs and contacting us for a free energy evaluation.
