Given how the economy has suffered over the last several years, it has become more important than ever to run an efficient and cost-effective office. Even now that there are some signs of recovery, that is no reason to forget about saving money. There is no point in being wasteful, and any money you do save will go directly into your profits.
One of the big costs of running an office is keeping it lit and heated – or air-conditioned in the summer. However, many offices aren’t efficient with either of these – for example, there is absolutely no reason to keep the office at 72 degrees all year round. If the thermostat is set a couple of degrees cooler in the winter, and a couple of degrees warmer in the summer, then no one will be any the wiser. However, you’ll end up significantly reducing your energy costs.
