Top Ten Energy Saving Tips:

  1. ENERGY STAR® computers and monitors save energy only when the power management features are activated, so make sure power management is activated on your computer.
  2. There is a common misconception that screen savers reduce energy use by monitors; they do not. Automatic switching to sleep mode or manually turning monitors off is always the better energy-saving strategy.
  3. To maximize savings with a laptop, put the AC adapter on a power strip that can be turned off (or will turn off automatically); the transformer in the AC adapter draws power continuously, even when the laptop is not plugged into the adapter.
  4. Though there is a small surge in energy when a computer starts up, this small amount of energy is still less than the energy used when a computer is running for long periods of time. For energy savings and convenience, consider turning off the monitor if you aren’t going to use your PC for more than 20 minutes or both the CPU and monitor if you’re not going to use your PC for more than 2 hours.
  5. Consider using high-intensity discharge (also called HID) or low-pressure sodium lights.
  6. Recessed downlights (also called recessed cans) are now available that are rated for contact with insulation (IC rated), are designed specifically for pin-based CFLs, and can be used in retrofits or new construction.
  7. Use task lighting; instead of brightly lighting an entire room, focus the light where you need it.
  8. Use dimmers, motion sensors, or occupancy sensors to automatically turn on or off lighting as needed and prevent energy waste.
  9. Install fluorescent light fixtures for all ceiling- and wall-mounted fixtures that will be on for more than 2 hours each day.
  10. Consider buying green energy for a small premium from a supplier such as AmerenUE.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

The layouts adapts to the Screen Size of whatever device visitors are using. Nulla consequat.

  • “Our diagrams were a hodgepodge of pieces.  Aschinger looked at our building and gave us a complete set of one line diagrams.  Before, when we had an issue we could grab the pieces but we weren’t even sure if they were right.  Another good thing was their analysis and maintenance recommendations.”

  • Your foreman was irreplaceable in assisting us prepare for the event in the week preceding it, as well as helpful in setting up generators and other electrical equipment the morning of the event. He worked closely with our own staff electricians, and ensured that the event electricity was provided as safe and aesthetically pleasing as possible.
  • “Our project was never typical, could become unsafe at any time, was always sensitive to production and yet from the beginning your team has always looked after our best interest. Mike House and Scott Strumpler did an exceptional job!”

  • “I would like to offer my sincere thanks and appreciation to Aschinger for a great job. Everyone involved was knowledgeable and professional. This was a monumental achievement for both Duke and Aschinger and we should be proud of the results.”

  • “Thank you for sending Monte to work on our 5th grade classroom. We appreciate his ingenuity and good sense of humor while he worked at providing safer electric solutions…”

  • “When Aschinger showed us the dollars and cents it was a no brainer.  We went from 25-year-old fixtures to state of the art, and saved money in the process.”
