Energy saving solutions can majorly cut costs at your business. Have you seen the stats? Some businesses can save up to 10% on their budgets just by implementing energy saving solutions around the office.

We know many of the common answers, like turning off the lights and reducing use of space heaters. However, office equipment use can be altered slightly to help save on energy as well!

Office equipment use counts for 3% of energy use in US offices. That's a lot! Take a few simple steps to cut back.

How Your Multifunction Printer Can Help

First of all, it may be as simple as upgrading your printer. A multifunction printer has features that can cut back on energy and save tons. If you are using old machinery, it could be costing more than just making an upgrade. If you're unsure, talk to the pros at Da-Com to get set up.

Simple Ways to Save Energy

Here are some easy tips to save on energy:

  • Invest in an Energy Star appliance.
  • Use the automatic shut off and sleep mode on all office equipment.
  • Check ventilation on copiers to make sure they aren't overheating entire rooms.
  • Do an energy audit.
  • Use a kilowatt meter to test out energy use (and troubleshoot which machines may be trouble makers!).
  • Recycle toner cartridges.

These simple steps can make a big difference in expenses and energy use. It's not the time to use excessive supplies, energy, or other resources, so it's worth making the effort to stay ahead of the game and focus on what you can do to improve office sustainability.
