While all businesses are seeking ways to reduce their energy bills, we know just how important it is for dentist in particular because of the energy you use day-to-day.
Dentist surgeries could save thousands on their business energy bills just by reducing their consumption and switching suppliers and we’ll explain just how it’s done.
With electricity needed throughout the practice – powering up the dental chair, drills, X-ray machines and computers – costs can be higher than the average small business so making a few small changes can make a big difference.
So here’s our top five energy saving ideas!
- Switch your business energy supplier
With a huge 68% price difference between the cheapest and most expensive electricity tariffs on the market, you could save your practice hundreds just by comparing your contract.
Business Juice compares 30 suppliers so you don’t have to. We work out the best tariff for you and your business, tailored to your requirements and we’ll carry out the whole switch for you – from terminating your old contract to supporting you throughout the lifetime of your new contract.
- Check your air conditioning
Replace your air con filters regularly to ensure they are working at full capacity. If the filters are blocked, your consumption will increase. Ensure vents aren’t blocked or covered up.
- Ensure everything is turned off
Not just when you leave for the night, but while you’re on your lunch or in between patients. Plus, switching lights off in empty rooms or corridors could mean savings of up to 15%.
- Lower your heating
Lowering the temperature can avoid wasting energy and lower your consumption noticeably. According to the Carbon Trust, reducing your heating by just one degree could result in cost savings of 8%.
- Use compact fluorescent lamps.
Replace incandescent light bulbs or halogens with compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). CFLs last several years and use about 75% less electricity.
