Use the tips below to help you use energy more efficiently around your business so you can save money on your bill.
Weatherize your business. Apply weather stripping or caulking around doors and windows to help keep heat or cool air from your system inside your business
Maintain your business’s heating equipment. Get your heating equipment tuned up periodically by a professional service representative
Check your thermostat. Set your thermostat a few degrees lower in the winter, and higher in the summer, if health or inventory permits
Check for air leaks. Check the duct work for air leaks about once a year if you have a forced-air heating system. To do this, feel around the duct joints for escaping air when the fan is on. Relatively small leaks can be easily repaired by covering holes or cracks with duct tape. More stubborn problems may require caulking as well as taping
Dust or vacuum radiators. Dust and grime impede the flow of heat; keeping them clean helps radiators maintain their efficiency
Install storm windows. Combination screen and storm windows are the most convenient because they can be opened easily when there’s no need to run heating or cooling equipment
Adjust your blinds. Raise your blinds in the winter to let warm sunlight into your business, and lower the blinds in the summer to keep cool air inside
