How Efficiency Upgrades Help You Save Energy and Money*
- Lighting While a standard bulb cost $7 a year to power, LED bulbs will run you just $1. LEDs also last up to 15 years, helping you save on replacement and maintenance costs.
- Refrigeration By retrofitting your old refrigerators and freezers, or replacing them with more efficient models, you can save big on your monthly energy bill.
- Heating, Ventilation, and Cooling (HVAC) and Hot Water Heating and cooling accounts for a significant portion of a building’s energy use—typically about a quarter. Domestic hot water heating also uses considerable energy. Upgrading and insulating your equipment can help you bring down your energy bills effortlessly.
- Building Envelope The exterior of your building—the outer walls, windows, ceiling, and floor—is called the “envelope.” You can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs—or up to 10% on your total annual energy bill—with proper insulation and sealing.
- Energy Management Systems Easily save up to 20% on your energy bills with energy controls that automatically regulate your business’s heating, cooling, lighting, and more.
