TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) March 07, 2018 -- Energy makes modern business possible, but it also creates a large percentage of the costs businesses incur. Facility managers can help their organization reduce energy costs by engaging in energy efficient practices.
"Running an energy efficient facility is a wise business choice on many levels,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX’s VP of Business Development. “Energy efficiency helps protect your bottom line, reduce environmental impact, recruit ecologically-minded employees, and keep your company's technology up-to-date.”
MaintenX International has been helping facility managers make smart energy choices more than 35 years. Here are some suggestions for reducing your energy consumption and increasing your savings:
Retrofit your HVAC: Retrofitting may be the best option if you're not ready to totally replace your HVAC system but concerned about your energy consumption. Retrofitting updates parts of your HVAC system, like compressor replacement or condenser fan control additions. These updates can improve the overall function of your machine without causing drastic replacement costs.
Check your Insulation: Efforts to efficiently heat or cool your space are a waste if you fail to address poor insulation. Properly insulating walls and windows is a great place to start. Pipes, ducts, and power outlets can also be hidden culprits for energy loss.
Schedule Regular Maintenance: Preventative maintenance services, like those provided by MaintenX technicians, can help resolve energy-draining issues before they result in excessive costs. Technicians work to identify and resolve these issues for their clients. Additionally, regular maintenance can reduce the likelihood you’ll experience a costly, major repair.
Be Smart about Lighting: Lighting consumes energy, but there are easy ways to reduce consumption. Installing solar lighting options, motion-sensor lighting and utilizing natural light sources are all easy-to-execute options. A final simple step is to make sure all light bulbs and windows are clean and unobstructed, so they provide the most lighting possible.
