Running an eco-friendly business is a very important consideration within the modern world, and there is increasing pressure within almost all sectors to take such steps wherever possible. Each industry will have its own unique best practises in this respect, but the aim is always the same; to reduce negative environmental impact and minimise your carbon footprint.
Tips for Offices
As a supplier of many office heating systems, we’ve naturally had a lot to do with office environments throughout the UK over the years, and so we find that we’ve got a fair amount to say about eco-friendly practice in this area. Within offices, the steps that you can take towards environmental-friendliness are actually very simple for the most part, so here are a few tips that we’ve picked up along the way:
- Without doubt, the single biggest step that an office can take in this respect is to reduce paper usage. This can be done by a more widespread use of emails, storing data on a cloud system or trying to print double-sided wherever possible. This might sound simplistic, but it all helps.
- Most offices have many forms of equipment within them, from computers to heating systems, and another commonplace habit is that these systems are left running overnight. This wastes a huge amount of energy, and just turning these devices off when you aren’t using them can halve your energy usage. What’s not to like?
- Recycling and reusing should be the foundation of any eco-friendly office, but these schemes need to be made visible to employees. That means making it easy for these practices to happen (putting recycling bins in plain sight and the like). Otherwise, people will tend to neglect such good habits.
Of course, your heating systems can go a long way towards cementing your eco-friendly status as well, and this means far more than simply turning them off whenever they’re not in use. Use them sparingly, and implement insulation measures like double glazing or curtain covers to keep the heat in as long as possible. You’ll also need to keep such systems maintained and in good repair, and here at Heritage Heating and Cooling we can help you greatly in this respect.
Proven products like Powrmatic heating systems are already exemplary from an economical perspective, and we can ensure that these already efficient solutions retain their high standards of performance for as long as possible, reducing your energy usage, and therefore your carbon footprint. We can also install these systems from scratch, so if you’ve yet to choose an eco-friendly heating system, we can be of great service to you.
