Energy Consumption Tips
Francesca Brady

It’s common knowledge that the average company spends a substantial amount on energy bills, but did you know that a sizeable percentage can be shaved off this budget? The point is not to sacrifice for the sake of saving, but rather to optimise energy consumption and reduce waste. There is a growing trend to use technology for this purpose and programmable software now offers the consistent application of simple rules to help you save money.

Here are a few battle-tested ideas that won’t be too hard to implement, but could have a significant impact on your energy bills if you adjust them to fit your specific situation:

Switch off the lights automatically in empty rooms

With modern motion sensor technology at your disposal, it is quite simple to track occupancy at all times and turn off the lights in parts of the building that are completely empty. Automation allows for systematic control that doesn’t depend on human intervention, ensuring the most rational utilisation of electricity. The savings achieved can be significant, especially in public buildings or corporate offices where the number of people present varies greatly depending on the time of the day and other factors.

Tie the heating system to a timetable

Owners of business facilities face a costly dilemma – to keep the heating on throughout the night and burn energy, or to wait until the employees arrive before they start warming up the office. One of the most optimal solutions to help save energy and costs here,  is to program the heating system to start an hour (depending on your building make up, you may need a little longer) before the office opens and to stop just before it closes for the day. It is also possible to keep certain areas warm at all times if needed, or to design a schedule that takes business needs into account.

Optimise space usage and internal procedures

Smarter organisational planning can reduce the need for energy expenditure by grouping certain activities together and keeping redundant or unnecessary tasks to a minimum. For example, smart positioning of key resources (cafeteria, toilets) can reduce the use of elevators and sliding doors, while office cleaning can be performed one floor at a time.

Schedule energy-intensive tasks

Some activities obviously can’t be performed without turning off electric-powered machines, but it is possible to be strategic about the timing of such tasks. It would be most prudent to move such tasks into periods when overall consumption is lower, and outside of peak energy periods. i.e. in the evenings or during weekends.

Advances in IOT technology allow us to automate processes, offer tenants / residents greater comfort and save money while helping buildings become more environmentally friendly. Contact us today to discover how we can help you.
