There are a number of ways that you can increase your energy efficiency both at home and at work. This in turn helps save money by reducing your energy spend.
There are a number of quick fixes you can make to begin saving significant amounts of money.
You can save a large amount of energy by switching all lighting to LED. Traditional fluorescent and incandescent bulbs are very energy inefficient compared to LED and have a much shorter lifetime. Whilst initially more expensive, LED lighting will pay for itself with energy and maintenance savings and continue to use low amounts of energy for a significant time after.
A common problem, especially at work, is keeping a hard-to-heat area warm without using very energy intensive heaters. Far infrared heating is a way to heat localised areas using radiant heat, which heats objects and people as opposed to the air. These heaters are much more energy efficient whilst offering a better way of staying warm.
Solar panels are a great way to improve a buildings energy efficiency. The panels generate energy to use in the home or workplace, reducing your reliance on grid power – which is facing drastically rising energy costs. Feed in tariffs and export tariffs mean you can create a 20 year income stream whilst generating clean, renewable energy for use in your home or workplace.
There are a whole host of programmable thermostats on the market that can help save you money. They can automatically adjust heating and cooling appliances to ensure your home or workplace is heated exactly how you need it in the most efficient way possible.
