As the area’s go-to commercial electricians and industrial electricians, we’re always receiving inquiries from Surrey businesses concerning energy efficiency. They want to know how they can reduce their energy bills, while minimising their carbon footprint; this latter motivation seems more and more important as each year goes by. So that’s why we’ve looked to provide some tips for making your premises more efficient.
But if you’ve come looking for a team of electrical contractors, which also takes in trained aircon contractors and refrigeration contractors, feel free to skip the below and call us directly on 01273 515522 or 07855 484553. We can handle any of your electrical needs, from commercial rewires to the installation of commercial-grade fire alarms. While many claim they do, we truly offer up a complete electrical service.
Employ Modern Technology – There are a number of useful gadgets which can help make your Surrey property more efficient. Some are electrical installations that can be handled on a DIY level, although as a versatile team of commercial electricians and industrial electricians, we’re always happy to handle this on your behalf as part of our complete electrical service.
They include motion/occupancy sensors which automatically turn off lights when they detect that a room is no longer in use. You can also get devices which monitor electrical usage, and break down exactly what’s contributing to your energy bill. Many Surrey businesses find it easier to cut down on energy usage as soon as they see it all laid out before them.
Replace Antiquated Installations – Older appliances tend to be less energy efficient than modern products manufactured with this important category firmly in mind. If you have a number of older installations sucking up an excess of power, we can replace them as part of our complete energy service – this includes electrical installations fitted and repaired by our trained aircon contractors and refrigeration contractors.
If your wiring is equally old, we can also update that while we’re at it. Commercial rewires not only improve the functionality of older properties, which may not be equipped to deal with the demands of modern working life and the countless electrical appliances which it involves, but they make them safer. Older wiring can pose a fire and electrical shock risk, so our commercial electricians and industrial electricians often recommend replacing it.
Upgrade Your Lighting – Halogen bulbs are very inefficient by modern standards. Replacing them with LED bulbs has a number of very attractive benefits. Not only do they use drastically less energy (around 20%), but they last far, far longer – making them a much more cost effective investment on two levels. On top of all this, most Surrey clients find the light that they provide to be more illuminating and pleasant (mirroring natural light). As your local electrical contractors, we can supply and install LED lighting throughout your premises at very competitive prices.
Reduce Usage – Perhaps the most obvious point on this list, but one with the biggest potential for savings. Encouraging workers to reduce their energy usage by turning off computers, lights and similar electrical installations whenever not in use can save your business a bundle. It’s almost worth carrying out an “energy audit”, breaking down where you could make savings. For example, while the systems we install as aircon contractors are great at keeping you nice and cool, on only slightly warm days you could merely open up your blinds and let the sun do its thing!
The aforementioned monitoring devices can assist in this, or you can call in our team of commercial electricians and industrial electricians to provide bespoke advice tailored to you. No two of our Surrey clients are the same, after all. Some might be in desperate need of commercial rewires, others may need new fire alarms fitted, others we may be able to help in our capacity as aircon contractors or refrigeration contractors. We offer a genuinely complete electrical service, unlike many competing electrical contractors!
