How to choose energy-efficient equipment

Energy-efficient equipment can save your business money. While it can be tempting to hold on to existing equipment a little longer, you may find that upgrading old equipment to a more efficient version can quickly pay off.

To see some real life examples from businesses who have made changes to their equipment and saved on their energy bills, see these case studies.

Whether your equipment is old or new, you can often find energy savings by learning how to operate it in the most efficient way possible. Sometimes, this means adjusting the way you use your machinery—speak to the manufacturer to get their advice on this. Regular servicing will be the key to keeping your business equipment operating at peak efficiency.
