Spend $115 now and SAVE $230 each year... ROI = 200%
Even if your utilities are rolled into your lease, this is a highly cost effective green office tactic. By pre-setting the temperature you can increase your employees comfort, because the office can in effect 'warm-up' in the winter or 'cool-down' in the summer just before employees come in to work. Programmable Thermostats are one of the most cost-effective ways to save money and the environment. Heating and Cooling accounts for about 40% of an office's annual energy costs. You can save up to 10% when you use a programmable thermostat to adjust the temperature automatically at night. You can save by keeping the office substantially cooler at night in the winter and substantially warmer at night in the summer. Install an ENERGY STAR® qualified programmable thermostat.
ENERGY STAR® is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. Results are already adding up. In 2006, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR®, saved $14 billion on their utility bills, and saved enough energy to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 25 million cars. Programmable thermostats offer savings, comfort and convenience. Set a 'program' for your thermostat to follow based on your staff's work hours on each different work day and weekend, so you don't have to think about adjusting the temperature manually. A programmable thermostat that you can set for multiple different days costs up to $115. The ROI Calculation is based on the average US employee generating an annual heating and cooling of $238. The 10% annual savings per employee is over $23. So, for an office of ten the savings is over $230.
