How to Save Energy Throughout the Summer Months

Saving energy throughout all times of the year is important, especially when you are keeping yourself, your staff and equipment cool during Summer.

The Summer months can be a time when your bills go up unexpectedly, so, we have compiled a few tips to make sure this doesn’t happen to you this summer!

Invest in water efficiency

Much more water used during the summer months, so, making sure you aren’t over paying, or have inefficient appliances is imperative. As most businesses have not switched provider since the deregulation of water in 2017, there is a high likelihood you could save money on your bill. Get in contact with a utilities consultancy such as DBS to review your options!

Advocate for Water Conservation Practices

Beyond efficient appliances, promote water conservation habits that can lead to significant savings. Offer practical tips, like fixing leaks promptly, using drought-resistant plants in landscaping, and collecting rainwater for garden use. Highlight the environmental and financial benefits of adopting a more water-conscious lifestyle.

Switching your water supplier isn't the only way you can save money on your water bills, take a look at our water management blog to learn more!

Evaluate your energy supply

Making sure your energy supply is optimal for all seasons is very important, so evaluating your supply and supplier can set you up for the summer and even the later seasons. Reviewing your energy supply is a very important way to keep ahead of your competitors and that volatile market, contacting a consultancy who study the market, such as DBS, can improve your energy efficiency, save you money and keep you ahead of the curve.

Encourage Energy Audits

Recommend that readers consider professional energy audits for their homes or businesses. Explain how an audit can uncover areas of energy waste and recommend specific improvements. Mention that some utility companies may offer these audits for free or at a discounted rate.

Implement Smart devices

Smart devices can save you lots of money, energy, and time. For example, smart meters automatically send readings to your supplier, meaning you won’t need to take readings. LED lighting is another smart device which can save you both money and energy, they use less energy and last much longer than traditional bulbs.
