One way businesses and householders can save money on energy bills is by taking part in a free energy survey. Once the survey has been completed, the owner of the premises will be presented with some practical advice on what they can do in order to start saving money on their utility bills.
Getting an assessment
There are a number of different options to get a free green energy survey; this could be from your own energy company, responding to an advertisement in a newspaper or other publication, as a result of a cold call, or by speaking to Nexus Energy Solutions energy advice centre that offers specialist information on the measures that need to be taken to make the environment greener while also reducing energy bills,
During the assessment, the assessor will ask various questions are aimed at determining the measures the householder or organisation could make to reduce its carbon footprint and to significantly lower utility bills. Questions that are likely to be asked will include how many people live in or use the property, the type of heating is uses and how often it is utilised, the energy saving methods that are already used in the property, and some assessors will examine the roof/loft area to see if insulation might provide a significant saving on the bills.
Before an assessment begins it is a good idea to ensure you have one of your latest energy bills available although this is not necessary provided you can give a good idea of your typical costs; property owners might also like to make a list of the energy efficiency measures already in place and the type of appliances already used to make the assessment easier.
Free energy advice
Once the assessment has been successfully carried out, the property owner will receive a report with the results. The report will include an assessment of the current amount of energy the property is using and free energy advice with suggestions on how the owner of the premises can save money on their energy bills.
In addition, a completed report will show the estimated savings the business or house owner could save by taking the suggested energy measures and an Energy Performance Certificate will detail how energy efficient the property currently is.
The next step
Once the free energy survey has been received, the property owner will have practical advice they can follow such as adding insulation, draught proofing, advice on green energy production, and in some cases the owner will be eligible for a grant to pay towards the energy measures that need to be taken.
If you want to make your business more energy efficient then you should certainly think about getting a business energy audit. Energy companies such as Nexus Energy Solutions will be able to help you get the advice you need to increase your energy efficiency but you’ll need to complete a free energy survey before you can access this free energy advice. The survey can be done online in most cases and it could save you hundreds of pounds every single year.
Many businesses lose substantial amounts of money each and every year, purely because their business premises aren’t using energy to its full efficiency. Many business owners try to cut down on energy by turning off the lights when they are not in use, as well as limiting AC usage. This isn’t any good if when your appliances are turned on, they are burning more energy than needed so an energy survey is a must-have for any business.
