So in order to help, we thought here are ten simple tips to quickly make your business more energy-efficient.1. Switch off appliances fully If your people are leaving their PCs and other appliances on standby at the end of the day, this can become expensive. Just one PC and monitor can cost more than £50 every year if left switched on around the clock. The best thing to do is to switch things off when leaving the office and make sure scanners and printers aren’t left on when they aren’t being used. Also unplug any chargers that aren’t being used – if they feel warm, they are converting energy even if a mobile device isn’t attached. 2. Turn off those lights When it’s bright outside or when office spaces aren’t in use, get the staff into the habit of switching off the lights. This can cut bills by up to 15 per cent. Remember too that energy-saving light bulbs save money over time, even though they are more expensive to buy than conventional bulbs initially. Invest in the latest models and you’ll really notice a difference on your bills. 3. Defrost kitchen appliances If you have a staff fridge or freezer, buy frost-free models or defrost them regularly to ensure they are running efficiently and staying safe.
