As businesses and corporations across the country switch to smarter technology in an effort to focus on sustainability, they are beginning to realize the financial benefits, as well as the environmental benefits, of going green.
There are numerous ways your business can accomplish the transition towards sustainability. From LED lighting, to more efficient HVAC systems, to sustainable janitorial practices, your business can make the change to become green and save money.
LED, or light-emitting diode, lighting is one of the most rapidly developing, efficient lighting technologies available. LED bulbs offer better light quality, last longer, and are more durable than other lighting technologies.
According to Energy.gov, LED lighting uses at least 75% less energy than incandescent lighting. Due to this efficiency, LED bulbs are able to replace incandescent bulbs up to 75 watts.
By switching to LED lighting, your business will experience immense savings in energy.
Optimizing the efficiency of your HVAC system is another great way to save money while simultaneously reducing your carbon footprint.
The first thing you should look for when upgrading your HVAC system is an Energy Star label. Energy Star labels indicate a certification of energy efficiency backed by the government. Furthermore, you can look at attributes such as the Energy Efficiency Ratio and the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio of a product to determine its sustainability. Lastly, you can always contact BRAVO! with any questions about upgrading your HVAC system.
Smarter technology such as geothermal heat pumps, gas boilers, and split system air conditioners are all fantastic options when looking to make the switch to a more environmentally friendly HVAC system.
Hiring a team of professional cleaners who specialize in utilizing the latest small technologies to provide your business with sustainable janitorial practices is another great method of reducing your business’ carbon footprint.
