The Energy Doctors tips for small businesses

What to think about:

1. How much are you spending?

        Find out what you're spending each year and investigate unexpected spikes?

2. What's using the most energy?

         A smart meter can help you to identify the appliances that use the most energy.

3. Have you got your timings right?

        Switch off equipment outside working hours, perhaps with the help of plug-in       timers.

4. Do you need new equipment?

        Think about replacing kit that you know is old, clunky and inefficient.

5. Are your staff on board?

        Get their suggestions and ideas on how things can change.

6. Can you stop heat from escaping?

         Check for draughts. Insulate lofts, walls and doors.
