Learn how to make your commercial building more environmentally sustainable.
Implement environmentally sustainable practices in your workplace. Going green not only helps to save the environment, but it also helps you save on your property’s utility bills. Check out these environmentally sustainable practices for you commercial building to start saving.
Upgrade Your Thermostat.
Invest in a programmable thermostat. It will help you better regulate your office temperature. That way you don’t have a constant tug of war when it comes to setting the office temperature. Instead, you can maintain a constant temperature, and have the system automatically turn off when everyone leaves for the day. It’s more efficient and will help you save more energy and money.
Audit Your Equipment.
Office equipment is one of the biggest drains of energy that your commercial property faces. Every so often, audit your company equipment so that you’re better able to identify issues. If there are any problems, fix them so that you can effectively use energy.
Check for Leaks.
Your office may have air leaks that could require you to use more energy than needed. Have your heating and cooling ducts inspected so that you can find any leaks. If you find any, have them sealed to save energy.
Reduce, Reuse, & Recycle.
Be mindful of the office supplies that you use. Encourage workplace culture to be conscientious of materials used. Reduce the amount of paper that you use, reuse scraps of paper for notes, and recycle paper whenever possible.
Change Your Landscaping.
Southern California is a desert. Pristine, green landscapes aren’t sustainable, and they use lots of water. Cut back on your water use, and change up your landscaping to a more drought tolerant version. You’ll help to save a significant amount of water.
