3 Tips to Supplement Your Energy Management SystemsPosted by July 7th, 2016
Over half of the buildings across the country operate at an efficiency of less than 60 percent. This is clearly bad news for your electrical bill, as well as the environment. Large businesses and factories, in particular, will feel the negative effects of this low efficiency. You can have an energy audit done by a professional, who will then make recommendations for improvements. The best companies will do better than the industry minimum. Even with professional help, you will want to take steps in your daily life to further reduce your energy consumption. The following tips should supplement the energy management system installed by a professional.
- Use a Programmable Thermostat- Opting for the right thermostat to control your HVAC system can do wonders in terms of energy efficiency. This way, you can always ensure that you don’t use more heating or air conditioning than necessary for your home or property.
- Turn Off Devices and Lights- Although it has always been the most common piece of advice, turning off lights and other devices is still worth mentioning as a way to supplement energy management systems. Just turn off your light when you leave the room, and remember to turn off the TV, radio, or your music player when they’re not being used. For even better results, unplug items or turn off your power strips, as well.
- Opt for Energy Certified Items- Whenever you buy a new appliance for your home or an electronic device, try to choose one that is Energy Star certified or meets other energy-saving requirements. These devices use less energy and meet strict guidelines so they can save you energy.
