It’s up to all of us to reduce the country’s energy consumption in our own big or small way. It’s our job to stock the latest in energy saving devices; from heaters that only work when you’re around or fans that reduce right down to a ‘trickle’ during quiet periods.
It’s our responsibility as consumers to ensure all aspects of our home and office are maintained to a high standard. Things like closing windows and curtains can have a big impact on the amount of heating energy you use. Before you leave the office or your home, just before you lock up, make turning off printers and monitors fully part of your routine. Similarly, whilst your item will be received in original packaging, you may receive in a recycled outer box - this is because we believe in recycling packaging rather than disposing of it. Little habits like this can save both money and energy.
Though it’s often a lot easier to replace broken electrical items, you might be able to save some money and help the environment by having it repaired. In many cases our electrics fail because of a single component and electrical wholesalers are likely to have spare components at very attractive prices. We would always encourage people to think before they discard potentially useful items. If you’re unsure about repairing or replacing an electrical item our team will be happy to advise.
