You shouldn’t have to live in fear of facing your utility bills each month at the workplace! One of the most effective ways to conserve energy is to cut down on the amount of electricity, natural gas and other fuels we use while trying to bring the temperatures in our office buildings to comfortable levels. According to Energy Star, an Environmental Protection Agency program that advises businesses and individuals on eco-friendly energy savings, up to 30 percent of the energy generated to heat, cool and light the average commercial building is wasted.
Weatherproofing your doors, windows and skylights is the best way to make sure unconditioned air is not seeping in to or out of your office. And while weatherproofing can help you save on your utility bill, it can also put a dent in your annual taxes by applying your improvements toward tax deductions offered by Uncle Sam.
