Garments to address energy costs

Garments aren’t the most obvious things that come to mind, when talking about addressing energy costs. However, heating takes a huge chunk of your annual budget both as a company and as an individual. And how can we turn the thermostat down more effectively, than by being our own thermostat? Indeed, by smart clothing.

By adding or removing layers, you not only manage your comfort more effectively, you also benefit your wallet. For every degree you turn down your thermostat, and leave it there of course, you’ll save between 1 and 3 percent of your heating bill. Although draft and convection heat loss must be taken into consideration too, going down by one degree must surely seem worthwhile.

Not without loss of comfort

Since the wellbeing of your staff is one of your major concerns, professional garments are an important factor. When you look around, you’ll see that in the same office, one employee is shivering with cold and the other wants to open a window. It’s more common than not, that while the heating is on, windows are open.

Providing your employees with professional protective clothing can be the answer. You reduce heating costs, increase your company’s brand awareness and enhance your employer branding.

Dress in layers is our message on this Cut your energy cost day. Wearing several Sioen layers gives you the option to open or even remove a layer before you get too warm and start perspiring. Alternatively, it allows you to add a layer when you get too cold. In addition, multi-layering allows you to take into consideration different levels of physical activity, changing temperatures and weather conditions.
