Energy Expenses

Cutting fixed expenses is the fastest way to keep more on every dollar. At Paul Brown Salons and Spas ( throughout Hawaii, Brown says the need for all-day air conditioning is equal to the need for heat during a Minneapolis January. To tackle energy bills, he dials down the AC at all locations two hours before closing and has seen a definite difference in the electricity bill.

Says Brown, “Sometimes, little things make a difference. You can at least dial-down near the end of the day. Also, check your water-heater thermostat; the temperature should be determined by the traffic. On Mondays, or days that you aren’t open, turn it way down; the water heater is the single biggest energy drain in your salon on those days.”

Paul Brown manages his energy consumption by lowering the AC near the end of the day.
