There are many factors that go into running and maintaining a successful business. Many things are unpredictable and beyond our control which makes managing things we can control that much more important. When it comes to the financial responsibilities of a small business, managing overhead costs in a practical and efficient manner can go a long way to determining a business’s success or failure. Here are a few energy saving tips for small businesses:


Upgrade Light Bulbs:

Compared to traditional incandescent bulbs, energy-efficient lightbulbs such as halogen incandescents, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and light emitting diodes (LEDs) have the following advantages:

  • Use 75% less energy
  • Produce about 90% less heat
  • Last up to 10x longer than traditional incandescent bulbs


Use Technology to Your Advantage:

  • Dimmers and timers not only save you money but they also help with building security.
  • Smart features on your thermostat can help you manage and control the temperature and energy use in the office.
