How To Reduce Care Home Energy Costs

Care homes can reduce their energy costs by optimising heating and cooling systems, switching to LED light bulbs, investing in proper insulation, and educating staff members.

It’s estimated, an average 20-bed care home uses around 395,000 kWh of energy annually – equivalent to roughly 18 small residential homes!

As the UK grapples with rising fuel prices, care homes are particularly vulnerable to exorbitant energy bills to maintain 24/7 operations. Higher energy usage translates to substantial financial burdens, with some care homes spending tens of thousands of pounds on energy annually.

The good news? Being more energy efficient has dual benefits.

Not only will your care home’s business energy bills be lower, but you will also contribute to a greener tomorrow with sustainability in mind.

This article will help you save money, reduce energy consumption, and slash carbon emissions to align with the UK’s Net Zero goals. These tried and tested tips will put more money into your pocket and make you more eco-savvy, without compromising the comfort of your residents.
