There is a proverb which says, “one stitch in time saves nine”. This means correct steps to taken in time can help save or avoid something that can turn out to be dangerous at a certain level. As we all know that the need of electricity and power generation is growing day by day. all the necessities of today’s lifestyle need power to run. Whether it is a commercial space or a residential, each space requires its own amount of energy.
To be precise in the commercial spaces the amount of electricity is specific, and the number of consumers is even more as compared to a residential space. Per unit usage off electricity is calculated for a commercial space by analyzing the number of employees and the machinery being used. This broad category of concern comes under the building maintenance. To increase the efficiency, the requirement of electricity in a commercial space is not limited on a daily usage. This is because of the modernization an advancement of technology in the present generation. On the other hand, in the residential space the electricity usage is calculated daily.
The use of electricity in the commercial space is calculated in such a way that it saves time and also increases the efficiency of the industry. There is no way to survive in the industry without the usage of electricity. All the appliances and processes are carried out with the help of electricity and at certain time it depletes the risk of getting exhausted one day. The building maintenance makes sure to conserve all the resources and take proper measures of saving power and energy in a commercial space. Some of these points are mentioned below
- The accountability- In an office or a commercial area employee is working smoothly without any obstruction. They do not pay attention to the consumption of electricity they are using per day because they are not incurring any cost towards it. So, they tend to be very careless while using electricity in the office space. Hence, for a better conservation of the energy the building maintenance team circulates information and reminders to all the workers to make efforts and be accountable to all the sources of electricity and switch off all the sources when not in use.
- Reducing and re-imagining– There is a simple system of working in most of the offices every day. In the any given commercial space it is seen that the employees are scattered all over the organization and work in different domains and departments. As an alternative, this way of working should be replaced with a new seating arrangement where all the employees sit close to each other, and the source of electricity can be divided uniformly. In this way of building maintenance, the source of energy can be conserved and reduced at the certain level.
- Finding another source– In the present generation there are a lot of non-renewable sources of energy which is being used neglectfully which will soon lead to scarcity of such sources and then at that point in time the humans will have to compromise on their needs. Building maintenance experts have started to look for alternatives like solar energy to generate electricity.
To conclude, building maintenance is such an important aspect of a commercial space. It helps to bring changes in the functioning of the working process. For an efficient production, maintenance is essential and will benefit in a lot of ways which mentioned in above points.
