Reducing your businesses electricity bill

To cut down on your electricity usage, and save money on bills, you should consider:

  • Switching off all electrical appliances overnight when not in use. Even though your electrical equipment might not be being used, it is still drawing power from the mains. And so will still be costing you money. Asking and reminding employees to do this though, is not always the best or most effective option. You should perhaps consider timer switches, that will turn off after working hours are over.
  • Switching to LED lights. Although this will cost money at the outset, replacing your bulbs and fixtures with those for LED bulbs could be a big advantage. LED bulbs use much less electricity, and last a whole lot longer. As a result, you will be spending less on bills, and less time and money on replacement bulbs too.
  • Servicing your electronic equipment. As electrical devices age, they can suffer from wear and tear, and gather dust and dirt. As a result, they tend to work less efficiently over time, causing them to use more electricity than necessary. Electrical maintenance and servicing can help to keep your electrical appliances running efficiently and effectively, without wasting electricity.
