2. Conduct an energy audit.

Professionals can visit your site to identify wasted energy and inefficient equipment. Even recommend shifting some production to off hours to lower your electrical bill. Contact your electricity and gas providers who often provide this service for FREE.

3.    Review TeleCostly Services. 

Nearly 90% of telecom bills are incorrect. A Telecom Bill Auditor can help you recover over payments – and guide you, if necessary toward a more effective and appropriate provider or plan.

4.    Limit the Lights. 

Activate lights by motion detectors or turn off lights when not needed. Consider disconnecting lights from unoccupied areas of facilities and replacing them with tap-light.

5.    Soft on the Wallet Software. 

Buy used software – Many online auction sites (like Ebay) have a good selection. Make an investment in your company’s future by turning to the cloud. Cloud Hosted Applications can save you tons of money in ongoing expenses.

6. Stuff the Cracks.

Improve your insulation and seal air leaks on the premises to reduce HVAC costs.

7.    On-site Storage.  

 Stop using offsite storage – make a place on-site or consider disposing or selling it – Remember, out of sight and out of mind does not mean it’s not still out of pocket.

8.    There’s No Place Like Home-Base.  

Stop all non-essential travel and stay close to the office – use the phone, video conferencing or Internet meetings (where documents can be shared between computers).

9.    Cash in on Space. 

Lease out unused office space as office condos or unused facility space as storage space.

10.    Don’t Pay for the Paper 

Many businesses still pay for paper publications out of sheer habit. Magazine, newsletter and newspaper subscriptions can often be converted to electronic subscriptions for less or for free.
