Rising utility costs in Australia are straining businesses in a range of industries. Many people feel helpless wondering why their bills are so high and seemingly continue rising. Many assume there must be something wrong, such as a faulty appliance, incorrect utility meter or an electricity, gas or water leak. While this is sometimes the case, in most cases it unfortunately isn’t.
When it comes down to it, the vast majority of high utility costs in business is a result of actual high energy usage.
Main Causes of High Bills
Utilities bills are on a general upward trend due to an increasing reliance on technology/electricity for core business operations as well as round-the-clock service/business operation. The main appliances that generate high utility costs for businesses are:
Ducted air conditioning
Electric water heaters
Other electric heaters
Of course, incurring many of these costs are unavoidable. However, there are plenty of ways to limit these costs. This includes replacing old technology and ensuring any new appliances are highly energy efficient. For example, replacing incandescent, halogen, fluorescent, and other lights with LED lights can generate up to 90% in energy savings.
Reducing the Cost of Laundry Operations
The appliances that account for the majority of your utility expenses obviously depend on what your business does. If you’re a commercial laundry or any other type of business that relies on significant laundry processes, then the operation of washing machines and dryers is going to account for a large proportion of energy usage. For example, a 1,000 room hotel with traditional laundering methods will typically use around 400,000 litres of water per day to clean its linens.
At Ozone Technologies, we specialise in providing laundry systems that drastically lower energy usage, thus lowering the cost of laundry operations. Our revolutionary OTEK System allows businesses to reduce water use by up to 40%, dryer gas use by up to 40% and overall energy use by up to 90%. The potential cost savings can be game-changing.
How the OTEK System Works
The OTEK laundry system employs ozone gas as a cleansing and disinfection booster. This allows you to reduce the length of wash cycles and eliminate hot water usage. It works by exploiting ozone’s highly active energy state to increase the effectiveness of detergents and cleaning chemicals, speeding up the destruction of soil and microorganisms.
It also means you can use fewer detergents and chemicals to achieve the same level of cleanliness. The best part is that it’s simple to implement. The OTEK System can be retrofitted to existing modern washing machines within your business, so there’s no need to completely replace equipment.
