Energy Saving Tips for Businesses: IDT Energy Advice

Certainly, anyone running a business wants to make every dollar count.  If you live in a deregulated state, it’s worthwhile to look into changing your energy supplier to one that may save you more money, such as IDT Energy.

There are many other ways to cut costs, as well, particularly during the winter months.  Make sure that all equipment in the office is turned off after hours and use ENERGY STAR products for your light fixtures.

Keep the workplace thermostat at 68 degrees during the work day and move the setting to 55 degrees when the space is not being used.  You can save up to 5% on heating costs with every degree you lower your heat in the 60-70 degree range.  Use programmable thermostats, as well, and consider having a cover that locks on the thermostat so that employees don’t change the temperature at will.
