Energy Saving Tips For SMEs 

- Ensure that lights are always switched off within rooms that aren't occupied. Still, install sensors. The reduction of lighting use could be achieved through proper installation. For areas such as toilets and meeting rooms, movement detectors should be installed to help control lighting. Such rooms aren't used constantly. 

- Turn off the lights. Open the curtains to let some natural light in. Where possible, employ the use of Retrofit lamps. Full lighting refits can be more costly than retrofits. Nevertheless, as years pass, a return on investment is observed. 

- Ensure that you go for light bulbs that have low-energy ratings. Go for slim-line tubes rather than standard fluorescent tubes. 

- Always make sure that office equipment such as faxes, projectors, printers, display TVs, and photocopiers are always in energy saver mode. Simple timers should be set to make it easier for them to automatically switch off during weekends and overnight. Moreover, switch off desk-lamp transformers, laptop chargers, and phones when you aren't using them. 

- The responsibility of heating controls needs to be delegated to one individual. 

- An energy lead should be chosen within your business. A close working relationship is needed with this lead. Heating Policies may be enforced within large companies. Such policies contain the times and temperatures for cooling and heating. They are handed over to every employee. 

- To do away with constant heating and cooling, an ideal medium temperature needs to be set. Temperatures of about 19 to 24 degrees Celsius set within the air conditioner can achieve this result. 

- Set an ideal temperature so that your fridge does not freeze. 

- During weekends and overnights, ensure that drink machines are turned off. 

- Opt for an instant boiling water dispenser rather than a boiler or kettle. 

At Josco, we aim to help our business customers pay lower bills by ensuring they become more energy efficient.
