Energy Efficiency in the Workplace

Ways that could save you money on your energy bills
In the interests of saving you more energy here are our top tips for saving energy in the workplace.

Air Conditioning

Did you know that your Air conditioning units can account for up to 30% of your energy usage? You can reduce this by only using it when necessary and closing all doors and windows when in use.
De-commissioning your Air Conditioning in the winter and Re-commissioning in the summer could protect your unit from winter weather and debris.
With regular servicing, you could expand the lifespan of your unit and avoid the steady decline of the air conditioning performance and energy costs.

Lighting

Consider replacing your incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescent units saving a potential 50% on your lighting costs, as 90% of energy that incandescent bulbs use is given out as heat these are the least efficient types of lighting.
Switch off your lights when leaving the room could save you up to 20% per year on your lighting costs.

Heating Equipment

Using Heat Sensors to control your thermostat not only creates a comfortable environment for your staff and customers but could also save you energy, as these act as the brain of the heaters by sending messages to the controller as to whether the temperature needs to be lower or higher. Although these must be positioned correctly as otherwise it will feed incorrect readings back to the controller which could increase your energy usage. At Dale Heating Services we specialize in the installation of HVAC equipment such as warm air heating and radiant heaters with extensive expertise in the positioning of the sensors for optimum performance.
Maintain your equipment- expanding lifespan and could reduce the risk of a breakdown by identifying underlying faults early.
Equipment upgrade- Some older heaters may not be as energy efficient as new ones. A site survey of your heating equipment should determine the best heating solution for you.
Ensure that your building is adequately insulated, as this could reduce your heat loss by up to 40 %.
