Overall Strategies

Since copiers, fax machines and other office equipment can be energy intensive, it is important to seek out energy efficient models. Many newly manufactured copiers, printers, scanners and fax machines are ENERGY STAR rated, which means that they use less electricity. Consider co-locating equipment and installing a supplemental ventilation or filtration system in copy room.

Best Practices

  • Look for units that have energy-saving cycles or that will automatically power down when not in use. Similarly, consider putting non-essential equipment on timers to power down during non-business hours.
