Commercial Building Energy Wasted Can Be Corrected

It’s estimated that at 30 percent of commercial building energy is wasted, which leaves a lot of room for improvement. There are many low-cost ways to save your company money when considering energy consumption. Don’t worry about breaking the bank to install extensive equipment to cut down on energy use.

“We encourage our clients to invest in renewable sources of energy whenever possible to help maximize energy use,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “For example, when looking at commercial energy use, there are plenty of simple and easy ways to save money by reducing operational costs and conserving water use.”

Reducing Waste to Save

Look at your operational costs and see where you may be spending money on wasted energy. By maintaining your facilities and regularly checking your appliances to make sure they are functioning as well as they should you avoid wasting money on poorly running equipment. For example, regular maintenance on your HVAC system can help reduce debris, clogs or filter issues that can cause your machine to use more energy for less output. Engage with staff and customers to cut back on water use or consider water-reducing facets because when you save water, you save money and energy.

Don’t Go It Alone

If you can, invest in renewable energy sources which will pay off after a few years of use. Facility managers might be out of their comfort zone when installing energy efficient items like HVAC systems or automatic light sensors, so be sure to call in a professional if additional assistance is needed.
