Energy Saving Tips

Evidence has shown that most businesses could simply and quickly cut their heating, lighting and power bills by 10% or more without any capital investment.

With a little investment, savings of 20% are realistic and some companies have even cut their energy costs in half, becoming more profitable and competitive as a result.

As well as the general advice provided below, the Carbon Trust can help you focus on savings which are specific to your sector and provide assistance via it’s helpline.

Lighting Tips

  • Turn off lights in empty rooms and corridors, and at the end of the day – this can save up to 15% on bills,
  • Use only the light you need,
  • Lights too bright in corridors? Remove or switch off alternate fittings,
  • Use daylight – it’s free, just make sure windows are kept clean and clear,
  • Clean light fittings annually, dirt reduces lighting efficiency, encouraging people to switch more lights on.

Heating Tips

  • Set the thermostat at 19°C, on average costs rise by 8% for every 1°C increase,
  • Do not heat unused space (storerooms, corridors),
  • Temperatures can be set lower in areas where there is heavy physical work,
  • Reduce heat during holidays and weekends,
  • Keep radiators clear and do not put furniture directly in front of them as it reduces efficiency and output,
  • Check that thermostats are sited out of draughts and away from either hot or cold spots,
  • Keep windows closed in cold weather and turn the heating down in warm weather.

Energy Management Tips

“If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it”

The Energy Advice Line strongly advises that you either get a SMART meter fitted or regularly check on your consumption of energy and make sure that your bills relate to what you actually use, rather than what the supply company thinks you are using based on an estimate.

Say 'No' to cold calling on business energy

Unfortunately, business electricity and business gas customers in the UK are bombarded with unsolicited cold calls on a daily basis.

This unscrupulous approach does not offer the business energy customer an impartial view on the market and the price offered is more often 20-30% above the current retail price for electricity or gas.

At Energy Advice Line we strongly advise customers to not accept these offers and follow our simple steps to ensure that they are not locked into an uncompetitive contract.

Join our cold calling campaign here, and spread the word to say 'no' to cold calling on business energy!
