6 Tips to Save Electricity in your Grooming Salon This Winter
With energy costs soaring, we have put together a few tips to help dog groomers cut back on electricity bills in their salons.
1. Invest in long-term savings with a Mutneys Drying Cabinet
Blasters typically cost £1.02 per hour to run and can only dry 1 dog at a time, which calculates to a drying time cost of approximately £0.34 per dog. Whereas Mutneys Drying Cabinets only cost £0.53 per hour to run (£0.49 cheaper than a blaster) and can dry up to 4 dogs at once, as long as they are non-reactive with other dogs i.e., dogs from the same family are ideal. Mutneys Drying Cabinets have an approximate drying cost of £0.07 per dog (£0.27 cheaper than a blaster!).
Another benefit of drying cabinets is that they allow you to be much more productive, as the drying cabinet does your job for you! Instead of standing blasting a dog, you can start prepping your next dog whilst a drying cabinet is on, which allows you to increase your workload and make more money on a daily basis.
2. Save with your washing
Getting an incredibly absorbent Aquamat Dog Drying Cloth will significantly reduce your washes. Simply use it, wring it out and use it again! Aquamat drying cloths will dry super quickly, so there is no need for a tumble dryer.
Say goodbye to huge piles of towels to wash at the end of the day!
3. Reduce drying time
Mutneys Kwik-Dry Spray significantly reduces drying time, which can help reduce your electricity costs by reducing the amount of time your blaster or drying cabinet is on for. Simply spray liberally on the dog’s coat after bathing and leave on for a few minutes before drying.
4. Switch off standby
Make sure to turn off electricity grooming tables, blasters, drying cabinets, clippers, chargers etc. at the plug at the end of the day.
Also, check your clipper charge time to avoid charging them overnight for longer than necessary. Some clippers, including our top selling Heiniger Saphir Style Cordless Clipper, have a recharge time of only 45 minutes.
5. Turn off lights and switch to LED bulbs
Remember to turn your lights off when you are not using them or when you leave a room. Replacing all the lights in your salon with LED bulbs could help you save even more on electricity costs.
6. Draught-proof windows and doors
Block up unwanted gaps that let cold air in and warm air out. You can buy draught-proofing strips to stick around your window frames. You could also cover the gap at the bottom of doors using a brush or hinged flap draught excluder.
