Keep Your Home Office Energy Consumption Low
Here are a few tips from the Alliance to Save Energy:
Manage your office equipment. Activate “sleep” features on computers, copiers, and other machines that power down when the equipment is on but not in use for a while, and turn off equipment during long periods of non-use to cut energy costs and improve longevity. By the way: Screen savers do not save energy.
Watch for heat or A/C leaks. Don't let your profits fly out of the window, or door. Plug home office energy “leaks” by weather-stripping between moving parts (doors and their frames) and caulking between non-moving parts (window frames and walls). Insulate your home office properly – as well as your whole home.
Use the sun. In the winter, let the sun help heat your home office by keeping blinds or drapes on sun-exposed windows open in the daytime. Retain heat overnight by closing the blinds after dark. In the summer, reduce cooling costs by drawing shades or blinds on sun-exposed windows and glass doors.
