April 22nd is Earth Day and in celebration, you can make some small changes to your massage practice that can save you money and help the environment too.
Getting a smart thermostat will turn down the heat or AC when you aren’t in your practice. When you are away for the weekend or in the evenings when your practice is closed, you can reduce your energy consumption by installing a smart thermostat which automatically adjusts the temperature for you. You can also adjust the temperature remotely using an app so that your massage practice is always comfortable, but you aren’t heating or cooling the place when you aren’t there. Smart thermostats can save you about 20% on your energy bill.
Be a Vampire Slayer
10-15% of the energy you use is for ‘vampire loads’. This is energy which is utilised when your appliances are on standby, but you aren’t using them. Invest in a power bar with a timer on which will switch appliances off when you are closing for the night and turn them back on just before you open in the morning.
Have a Light Bulb Moment
Switch your incendescent light bulbs to LEDs and you can save 8-12% on your energy bill. The new lights are more expensive, but they last much longer.
Mind the Gaps
Check your doors, windows, light fittings, plumbing openings and electrical openings to ensure that all your conditioned indoor air isn’t leaking out. Use caulk to seal any openings and holes where outside air is coming in.
Your customers care about the environment and are more likely to patronize establishments that are eco-friendly. Be sure to post all of your environmentally-friendly practices in your massage practice and on your brochures so potential clients can make the right choice.
