Companies are trying to find ways to cut costs without cutting their staff, benefits, or pay packages. Energy bills have been rapidly increasing and causing even large companies to start thinking of ways to reduce them.

These little devices allow you to program its setting to automatically adjust the temperature at certain times during the day and also when the outside temperature changes. To get the most bang for your buck, look for the Energy Star label on thermostats.

During the summer, you can make use of fans to keep the air flowing. This will make the room feel cooler and allow you to keep the thermostat at a slightly higher setting. Every degree you can keep the temperature setting higher in the summer and lower in the winter will add up to significant savings.

Lighting is another huge chunk of your energy bills, particularly in large business that use a lot of lights or offer 24 hour service.
