How to Cut Your Workplace Energy Use without Cutting Productivity
As any business owner knows, cutting costs in your business is a great way to improve your bottom line.
However, finding the right costs to cut can be difficult.
After all, while your expenses may need to go down, you don’t want your quality, service, productivity, or reputation to go down with them.
At Atom Power, we’re passionate about helping business owners like you save money by cutting your workplace energy use in modern, effective, and intelligent ways.
And whether you’re running an office, warehouse, factory, or other business premises, there’s a good chance your business’s lighting is ripe with cost saving opportunities.
Why Cut Power?
In the last five years, energy prices in Australia have risen by as much as 33%. That’s a significant cost for your business to wear, and it’s not likely to improve. It also means that any measure that can reduce your energy use is increasingly valuable.
Why Look at Lighting?
In almost any business, a significant portion of your energy use is spent on lighting. That’s because traditional lights are power-hungry and inefficient. As such, Climate Works Australia have identified energy efficient lighting such as LED lighting as one of the least expensive ways to reduce your power consumption.
In addition, it should be noted that traditional lights cost you in other ways, too: they emit heat, contain harmful chemicals, and are expensive to maintain and replace.
Why Use LED Lighting?
LED lights use as much as 80% less energy than traditional lighting.
They also emit less heat, which means they can even help you save on your air-conditioning costs.
Because of their nature and the way they’re manufactured, LED lights can last up to 10 times longer than their traditional counterparts – lowering your replacement costs.
And with a 7 year installation warranty, you’re looking at zero maintenance costs for 7+ years.
All of which can make a huge difference to your bottom line, without hurting your productivity.
Where do you Start?
Before you replace your traditional lights with energy efficient LEDs, it’s important to make sure you’re getting your lighting right in the first place. With optimal lighting, you’ll save money by effectively lighting the areas that need it – and nowhere else. As an added benefit, optimal lighting can raise the value of your property, and it ensures your lights positively affect your premises’ mood, look, and feel.
If you want to enjoy all these benefits, you need to commission a lighting audit first.
How does a Lighting Audit Work?
To conduct a lighting audit, our electricians visit your premises to assess and audit your existing lighting. This isn’t just about ticking boxes, but also about talking to you to understand your business’s unique lighting and operational needs.
Next, we work with dedicated lighting designers to design and recommend the best lighting options for your premises. Our focus is to design solutions for you that provide both optimal lighting and maximum savings.
In recommending LED lighting solutions, we take the time to ensure you understand the lighting proposal, answering your questions and explaining the benefits and savings in clear, straightforward terms.
Finally, with your approval, our electricians can install your new LED lighting according to your custom lighting plan – allowing you to enjoy cost savings for years to come.
What’s the Outcome?
With a tailored lighting audit and new, optimal LED lighting, your business can enjoy all the cost savings we’ve discussed.
And not only can you cut your workplace energy use without cutting productivity – you may even inadvertently boost it along the way.
That’s because with optimal lighting, you can enjoy all the benefits of good lighting, and that includes improved employee mood, satisfaction, and productivity.
