by Tint Fx Home, Glasses, Window, Tinting

The global pandemic triggered major economic disruptions that have taken a toll on businesses. Sales were down, cash flow was dramatically reduced and many enterprises had to close down or curtail their operations completely. Now, with a recovery underway, businesses are finding that they have to come up with ways to cut costs if they want to get back to full profitability.

With conflicts affecting global energy costs, one of the biggest concerns is the skyrocketing cost of energy. There's also deep concern about future supplies and market conditions, so permanently reducing energy consumption is a key goal. Fortunately, there are several steps a business can take to reduce its monthly energy bills.

Install Solar Window Film

As the planet warms and sunny days become far more intense, energy costs are expected to rise even more. When you install commercial window tinting you will reduce the temperatures in your building dramatically, as the window film cuts between 5 and 95% of infrared and visible light. You can choose between various strengths of the product to help assure temperature stability.

It's estimated that commercial window tinting can help save up to 30% on your utility bills. In addition to lowering the temperature, it also makes employees more comfortable by greatly reducing the glare and brightness in your work space.

Change the Temperatures on Your Thermostat

In addition to installing solar film, you can save money on your energy bills by raising your thermostat temperature in the summer and lowering it in winter. It's recommended that you set the thermostat at 78 degrees in the summer and 85 degrees after hours. For winter time, a setting of 68 degrees during the day and 60 to 65 at night is best.

The savings from these simple changes can be dramatic. It's estimated that you can see a savings of up to 3% per degree of thermostat adjustment in summer and winter. You can also look at adding commercial or industrial ceiling fans to aid in air circulation.

Follow Simple No Cost or Low Cost Tips to Save Energy

When you combine different energy-saving techniques, you can further reduce your monthly energy expenses. Lights should be turned off when a space if empty, so consider installing sensors that can do that automatically. You'll save substantially if you set your computers, copiers and monitors to sleep-mode when you are not using them.

This equipment should also be turned off at the end of the day. You might consider installing “smart” power strips, which can automatically turn equipment off when they sense that there are no workers there.
