Green Tips & Resources

Energy Conservation
  • HVAC filters should be changed once a month for optimal efficiency and performance
  • Conduct energy audits to ensure your facility is using energy efficiently with testing and measurement devices
  • Replace standard air filters with high efficiency filters
  • Schedule regular maintenance checks for your HVAC systems
  • Programmable thermostats can cut heating/cooling bills by 5-20% by focusing energy use when and where it’s needed
  • Turn down the thermostat setting on your water heater—for each 10°F reduction in water temperature, you can save between 3%-5% in energy costs
  • Control direct sun through windows depending on the season and local climate
  • Use fans to help delay or reduce the need for air conditioning which will cut your overall cooling costs
  • Seal off windows and doors with caulk, sealant, or weather stripping
  • Energy efficient lighting can help a typical building lower its overall emissions by 13% simply by switching from incandescent bulbs to compact fluorescent lights (CFLs). They use about 80% less electricity and last roughly 9 times longer
  • Replace T12 fluorescent lamps with T8 or T5 lamps without sacrificing light quality
  • Upgrade to LED lighting for energy and maintenance cost savings
  • Use occupancy sensors to turn off lights in unoccupied areas
  • Replace old exit signage with new LED or Photo luminescent versions
  • Buy energy efficient products-Energy Star rated
  • Save energy by turning off non-essential peripherals when PC is in standby, hibernate or off state with standby outlets
