5 Ways Buildings Can Improve Their Energy Efficiency During Winter


Winter is officially here, and freezing temperatures are sure to follow. For those of us who work in cold climates, we are all too familiar with this. Soon enough, offices will need to crank up their thermostats just to keep a comfortable temperature for their employees, but staying warm doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.

Here are a few ways you can improve your facility’s energy-efficiency and reduce your heating costs this winter.

Add insulation

Insulation is a key part of keeping your building energy-efficient all year long. By providing added resistance to heat transfer, adding insulation to your walls, ceilings, and floors can help cut your heating and cooling costs. Look into upgrading to low-e windows, which are coated in a thin insulative film to drastically reduce heat loss.

Seal air leaks

Feel a drafty area anywhere in your building? This not only leads to cold, uncomfortable spots in the office, it is costing you money too. For every bit of cold air that enters your building, warm air is escaping out of it. Air leaks can be effectively sealed using weatherstripping or a caulking gun.

Tune up your HVAC system

When was the last time you had your heating system professionally tuned up? If the answer was never, you should schedule an appointment immediately. A licensed technician will clean and inspect the various components of your HVAC system, helping improve its energy-efficiency and reduce its risk of a potential breakdown.

Change air filters

Your facility’s heating system contains an air filter which needs to be cleaned or replaced regularly. Clogged air filters can hinder energy-efficiency, cause additional wear-and-tear on your unit, and contribute to indoor air pollution. These filters should be changed every 1-3 months; look at your owner’s manual for specific instructions on your system.

Invest in an energy management system

Want to know exactly how much energy your building is using for different processes (such as lighting, HVAC, machinery, and admin offices)? Electro Industries power meters and submeters will tell you just that, and more! Once you identify areas of inefficiency, you can design and implement energy-savings programs and continue using our products to track your success!
