Tips on How to Save Energy

Be Cool - Go Green

Ensure a greener, eco-friendly working environment: practical tips and advice on how to run an environmentally-friendly air conditioning system:

  • Clean or replace your air filters once a month. A dirty filter can increase your cooling and heating costs by as much as 10%.
  • Ensure your cooling system is maintained and tuned annually. This can save 10% off cooling costs and prolong the life of your equipment.
  • Replace your air conditioning unit with a high-efficiency unit if it is more than 15 years old. This can save up to 40% off your cooling costs.
  • Turn up your thermostat and turn on a fan. A fan costs very little to operate and creates a wind-chill effect, making you feel cooler.
  • Apply solar screens or reflective film to windows on the West and East sides of your building. This can reduce cooling costs and make rooms more comfortable.
  • Install a programmable thermostat. This can save up to 15% off your heating and cooling costs.
  • Use the auto fan setting on your thermostat.
  • Turn off or reduce the setting of your air conditioning in unoccupied areas. This can reduce your cooling costs with no impact to your business.

So you can be green and cool ...
