Denver, CO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/29/2014 -- In its recent blog entry, E3 Power presented several major ways people waste energy at work. Saving energy is good for the environment and helps to save money. A few simple changes make it easy to save a significant amount of energy at the workplace.
In Six Ways People Waste Energy at Work, E3 Power states lighting is the first on the list to consider where energy is wasted. Commercial buildings often waste up to half their lighting energy by leaving lights on when the office is unoccupied. Other mistakes include using too many lights or higher wattage than necessary.
E3 Power reminds businesses about leaving appliances plugged in at night. Unplugging radios, microwave ovens and DVD players can help to save energy. Using a power strip is an easy way to shut them down at the end of a day.
According to E3 Power, energy is also wasted by personal printers and computers. Printers sitting idle all day waste energy and should be turned off at night. Another solution is installing a central printer. Computers also waste energy as many makers discourage completely shutting them down. The power saver setting with a blank screen is the best way to save energy when computers are not in use.
Inappropriate office temperature settings can waste energy and money. When the office is too cold in the summer, excessive air conditioning is being used. If people need to use space heaters in the winter, more energy is being wasted. E3 Power helps commercial facilities and residences examine their energy use to reduce their carbon footprint and save money.
