How can your hotel save money on energy bills?

There are a number of ways that your hotel can cut down on the costs of energy bills. These include:

  • Switching to LED lighting- LED bulbs use up to a third less electricity than other types of bulbs, and can last up to 300 times longer. This is because of the way they use electricity, which means that heat is diverted away from the main components. As a result, you can save money on your electricity bills, as well as reduce any associated maintenance costs.
  • Choose motion activated lighting- lighting that is triggered by motion can be a very cost effective option. Stair cases and hallways need to be well lit for your guests to stay safe and prevent injury. But leaving these lights on 24/7 can be very expensive, and it means you are paying for electricity even when it is not in use. Motion activated lighting on the other hand, will only be activated when motion is detected, and when your guests are actually using the area.┬áThis can help you save money on electricity bulls, and it means you wont be paying for electricity when you don’t need it.
  • Insulation- make sure your property is fully insulated. In older properties the cavity wall or loft insulation may not have been installed, so make sure all the necessary insulation is in place. This will reduce your heating bill.
