Keep your company out of the red with high energy costs by investing in green products and green design. Green design is used in new construction to reduce demands on commercial HVAC systems that often run continuously. To lower cooling costs in new buildings, architects can face a building away from direct sunlight. Green products include windows that optimize sunlight and reduce the need for artificial lights that strain cooling systems.
Companies should consider investing in HVAC systems that use non-polluting refrigerants -- a green product that won't harm the environment. The EPA is phasing out ozone-damaging refrigerants for a family of refrigerants that don't contain chlorine.
