While more and more businesses are taking measures to save energy, there are a few energy saving mistakes that many businesses still make. For years, we used the earth’s natural resources like they would never end. We now know that these resources are not endless and we’re beginning to see how all the pollution is having a negative impact on the earth and its inhabitants. As a result, individuals all over the globe are searching for ways to save energy. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on energy saving to have a dramatic effect on your energy bills. For example, you can buy energy efficient appliances and weatherproof your offices, warehouses and other business-related buildings to save energy and insulate it. While there are many ways to save energy, here are three energy saving mistakes that you should avoid:
- Using the wrong filters in your air handling units: when you use the wrong filters for your heating and cooling unit, the air cannot flow properly. As a result, the unit must work harder, which uses more energy than necessary.
- Not comparing products before buying for their energy saving features: all companies claim their products are the best. That’s just good marketing but some products are better than others. Before buying energy efficient windows, appliances, insulation, etc., do your research and then a comparisons of the different options until you find the best one for your needs.
- Not taking your windows more seriously: the windows in your building do more than just let the fresh air in occasionally. Opening them in the spring and fall when the temperatures are mild can help keep your building at a comfortable temperature, so you don’t have to use your heat or air conditioning unit. Blocking the sun from shining in during the summer will keep your building cooler and letting it shine in during the winter, will help to warm your building offices and rooms.
