Winter often means significantly increased energy usage, from keeping your office well-lit and warm all day to the kitchen kettle working overtime.
While you may have budgeted for increased energy spend in the winter months, there are many effective energy-saving initiatives you can implement right away so that winter bills don’t affect your bottom line as much as it could. In fact, the Carbon Trust estimates that most businesses could cut their energy costs by at least 10% with just a few straightforward changes to the office.
You may be surprised by how much heat can escape from your office space due to poor insulation. Run a test to see if your office space is properly insulated, especially if you’re based in an older building. Consider upgrading to double-glazed windows and doors that seal shut when closed to prevent heat escaping.
