If your workplace makes a conscious effort to switch appliances off when not in use, you will be surprised at the energy savings you can make. It also makes a huge impact switching to energy saving light bulbs where possible, for example, changing tube lights to T5 energy efficient lighting 'saved £2,282 on the annual energy bill and 8.52 tonnes of CO2 emissions.'.
Companies are introducing measures wherever possible to keep energy bills low, whilst maintaining a reputable carbon footprint and a "green" image. To counterbalance energy price increases we must try to prevent heat loss in industrial and commercial environments. There are two ways to do this: Insulate and protect.
Insulation is a primary factor in relation to heat loss and must be investigated extensively. Insulate your roofs, wall panels, offices, and access points to ensure heat is retained wherever possible. To achieve maximum efficiencies however we should also consider introducing PVC strip curtains in areas of high footfall/traffic as a means of protection against energy loss. Internal and External Doors that are constantly open to allow traffic and pedestrians access, will cost you greatly, as the cold air enters the building and the warm air escapes or vice versa the air-conditioned cool air escapes and the hot external environment enters.
The simplest solution to this expensive problem is to install PVC strip curtains which allow easy, hands-free access through openings, they return to their original position rapidly and create a substantial barrier between internal and external areas. Case studies have shown that energy bills can be reduced by up to 60% if installed correctly.
