Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"Purchase ENERGY STAR qualified commercial food service equipment. For example, qualified refrigerators and freezers can save over 45% of the energy used by conventional models, which equals as much as $140 annually for refrigerators and $100 for freezers; deep fryers can save between $60 and $180 per year; hot food holding cabinets can save up to $280 per year; and steam cookers can save between $450 and $820 per year depending on fuel."

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"Recommission Building Systems:
Because buildings degrade over time, they should be retested or "re-commissioned" every 3 to 5 years. A Department of Energy-sponsored study found doing so would produce energy reductions up to 15 percent. You'll probably need to bring in an energy auditor for this one. If you rent your space, ask your landlord to foot the bill."

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"Have a Light-Changing Day:
If you are like most people, you change fluorescent bulbs only when one burns out. This is actually the wrong way to do it from an energy-consumption perspective. After a bulb reaches about 80 percent of its rated life, it begins to tax your lighting system, wasting energy. So to reduce your energy bill, save money, and use labor efficiently, you should change all of your bulbs simultaneously, on a schedule. And when you replace them, use T8 tubes and upgrade to electric ballasts, thereby reducing the electric load by 42 percent.

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"Climate Control:
Trees provide two important cost-saving benefits: Wind breaks and natural cooling. If you live in a colder climate, trees can reduce wind speeds by 50 percent. In warmer climates, they can significantly cut cooling costs by reducing the temperature three to six degrees. According to San Diego’s Office of Sustainability, three well-placed trees can save up to 30 percent of a building’s cooling costs. Trees also provide more physiological benefits than any other plant; they consume carbon dioxide, control erosion, and filter contaminants from our water supply.

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"Power Down:
Ask employees to set their computers to go to sleep automatically after 30 minutes of inactivity and to turn them off at night along with printers and copiers. According to the EPA, this can save anywhere from $50 to more than $150 annually per device (depending on the type of machine and its energy consumption). And don’t let screen savers fool you: Most screen savers keep monitors running at full power. So screens should be black.

Energy Tip of the Day:

Atlantis Business Consulting's Tip of the Day is:

"COVER DRAFTY WINDOWS:
-Use a heavy-duty, clear plastic sheet on a frame or tape clear plastic film to the inside of your window frames during the cold winter months. Make sure the plastic is sealed tightly to the frame to help reduce infiltration.
-Install tight-fitting, insulating drapes or shades on windows that feel drafty after weatherizing."
