Going green in in 2014 can save UK business billions of pounds. Older buildings are notoriously inefficient when it comes to energy consumption due to outdated insulation, wasteful lighting, and construction that allows energy to seep through the cracks. You might think knocking a building down and starting again from scratch is the only way to alleviate your losses, but with modern eco innovations you can transform the efficiency of your building dramatically.
The UK government is fully dedicated to making the dream of a zero carbon society a reality. The Climate Change Act of 2008 stipulates that there needs to be an 80% reduction in carbon emissions in the UK in 2050 compared with 1990, and it’s up to us to reach that target.
Meeting targets might be the government’s focus, but the impact of placing a greater focus on sustainability can be felt a lot closer to home. Energy prices in the UK have roughly doubled over the last decade and the rate of rise isn’t set to change, finding new ways of reducing consumption is the surest way to ensure your monthly bills stay in check.
• LED Lights – One of the simplest retrofits to achieve in both domestic and commercial properties is replacing older light bulbs with LED lights. Businesses can save upwards of a staggering 70% of their electricity costs with this simple switch which puts money back into your pocket fast. LED bulbs also last around 100,000 hours which means once you invest it can be decades before they need replacing.
• External Wall Insulation – Adding an extra layer of insulation to your property gives you greater heat retention, so you’re not paying for wasted energy. Thermally efficient cladding reduces your fuel bills and helps to regulate temperature at all times of year, so you can lower your heating in the winter and your air conditioning in the summer.
• Heating Controls – By setting temperatures and timers for specific rooms you can save yourself the cost of heating superfluous rooms and wasting energy unnecessarily.
