  • Light emitting diode (LED) exit signs use about 5 percent of the energy used by incandescent exit signs and 20 percent of the energy used by compact fluorescent exit signs.
  • Installing occupancy sensors can save 20 to 75 percent of the energy used for lighting.
  • Each dirty heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning filter (HVAC) can cost your business up to $5 per month in energy and may shorten the service life of your equipment. Replace your HVAC unit’s filters regularly to save energy and maximize equipment life.
  • Energy-efficient office equipment can lower utility bills due to reduced air-conditioning loads, as well as the lower energy cost of the equipment itself.
