Summer has finally arrived and as Britain basked in the glory of the hottest day of the year on Sunday for many business owners’ thoughts would turn to the implications for business electricity costs.
Air conditioning units can be big consumers of business electricity. Now that the weather is getting warmer, it’s the perfect time to have your air conditioning units checked out to make sure they are running efficiently.
For office based businesses, opening windows and using ceiling fans are more energy efficient than air conditioning systems, while in restaurants, pubs and shops opening the doors and windows will help keep your staff comfortable.
All this seems obvious when you think about it, but many businesses still reach for the air conditioning switch as soon as the weather hots up.
