Friday 10th January 2020 marks NATIONAL CUT YOUR ENERGY COSTS DAY!

December is an expensive month for everyone, and businesses are no exception to this thanks to all the gift-giving and Christmas parties. Now we’re all back to work, it’s the perfect time to start looking at how we can save the valuable pennies!

The annual observance is designed to help homeowners and businesses alike by providing useful hints and tips to reduce energy costs and improve efficiency.

So how does RDM Installations and Controls contribute to this?

We specialise in installing Controlled Automation Systems for both small and large businesses, including bespoke solutions for dust extraction, water treatment, logistics, weighing and conveying. One of our key offerings is to design, build and install an automation system for dust extraction.

A great example of this is a workshop which only needs an extraction system to operate when a machine is in use. Instead of keeping the extraction on continuously, we can design and implement a system which would automatically turn the extraction on when required! This, therefore, saves valuable energy and money! Cleaver, eye?!

You don’t just have to be a business though to lower energy costs. Have you tried some of these at home?

  • Replace old windows with new energy-efficient windows
  • Turn down thermostats
  • Turning off lights when leaving a room
  • Use energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs
  • Run dishwasher and washing machine only when fully loaded
  • The lower water heater temperature
  • Unplug unused appliances
  • Carpool whenever possible
