How to Run an Energy-Efficient Warehouse Business

Simple cell phones and incandescent light bulbs are being replaced this century. If you run a warehouse business, keep track of the new energy-efficient trends that are appearing. Review several components that will help you to create a more energy-efficient warehouse.

Led Lighting

LED lighting is the most energy efficient type on the market. In the beginning, people used fluorescent lights to illuminate their buildings, but decades later, they found out that LED lights are cooler, brighter and longer lasting. LED T8 tubes are standard in warehouses and other commercial buildings. Find a wide range of product styles from companies like LED Lighting Wholesale Inc.

Repairs and Maintenance

Maintain your warehouse equipment regularly and repair the machines that are not working. Repair malfunctioning parts without having to replace the entire machine. To avoid repairs in the first place, set up a regular maintenance plan every month or year.

Equipment Shutdowns

Turn off the lights or any machine that you are not using. Too many home and business owners leave their machines running all night when no one is using them for hours. Cut your energy bills in half by using motion detection devices, also known as occupancy sensors, that switch off the equipment automatically.

Door Seals

Hot or cool air that escapes from a room is a major contributor to energy loss. Air exfiltration cannot be avoided in a typical building where the doors are constantly opened and closed. Door seals prevent more air from being lost than necessary.

Look for openings near the doors and along the walls. Also look for hidden openings in the ceiling and behind machines. Tell workers not to leave doors or windows open when the HVAC system is running.

Energy Audits

The most overlooked step to conserve energy is to run audits. You cannot increase the energy efficiency in your warehouse if you don’t know how much energy you’re saving. An audit, done by a professional, outlines the differences between taking energy-saving steps and not taking them. Some online audit tools are available, but you get a more comprehensive plan with an onsite audit.

Warehouses are complex places where people work and do not just store inventory. Every day, you manage the lighting, ventilation and temperature settings and pay a huge bill at the end of the month. It’s necessary that you find ways to save energy for the main purpose of running a more affordable and efficient warehouse.
