Energy Efficient Home Office Equipment and Lighting, in this here day and age many folks have a Home Office located some where in their home. Some folks have one area of their home which they only want some Energy Saving advise on, a Home Office is one such area. I'll usually receiver two or three E-Mails a week from folks asking what they can do to low their Energy usage in their Home Office.
If you work from home, you save time and money because you don't have to commute. But you may also see an increase in your home energy bills because you're spending more time at home, using office equipment, water, lights, air conditioning or heating. The following tips can help you to save energy usage money in a Home Office.
Energy Efficient Home Office Equipment and Lighting, saving Energy with your Office Equipment, now a days the home office has several different pieces of equipment folks use to get their daily work done, which use electricity. Which sure can really add up on your energy bill. The following are some tips that will help you to be able to keep a bit more of that green in your pocket and less in the Electric Company's Bank Account, by saving energy with your Home Office Equipment.
Instead of having a screensaver come on when you're away from your computer, have it go into "sleep" mode, or simply turn the monitor off when you'll be away for awhile.
Set other office equipment (such as printers, scanners, copiers and fax machines) to automatically switch into sleep mode when not active. Aside from saving energy, the equipment will stay cooler which will help it last longer and saves on air conditioning costs.
Keep infrequently used equipment turned off or unplugged, and only switch them on when needed.
Use a power strip as a "central shut-off" for all your equipment when you leave your home office. You'll save up to 40 watts of stand-by power per device.
Energy Efficient Home Office Equipment and Lighting, you'll be able to save energy and space in your Home Office by using a multi-function device that combines Print, Copy, Scan and Fax functions into one machine. Be sure to take the time to look for the ENERGY STARLogo to be sure you are buying an energy efficient model. For all Home Office Equipment, ENERGY STAR qualified products use less energy to deliver similar performance and quality as standard the models.
Are you using Energy Efficient lighting in your Home Office?, the lighting of a home office are on for many hours every day, which use a lot of energy. Switch to using CFLs (compact fluorescent light) bulbs how about using Energy Star qualified desk lamps, which can save you 75% on your lighting cost. Compact Fluorescent Lights also last up to ten times longer than incandescent light bulbs plus CFLs provide high-quality lighting for your Home Office, plus the rest of your home.
Energy Efficient Home Office Equipment and Lighting, if you want to save even more, then switch to Energy Star qualified residential LED bulbs. They use 75% less energy than incandescent lights, plus LED bulbs last 25 times longer. You want to remember to turn off the lights when you leave your Home Office, just like any room with in your home, no matter which kind of lighting source you use. You'll also be able to save energy by unplugging your cell phone chargers and power adapters once your device has fully charged or the item has been removed from the charger.
