Pub Energy; Electricity and Gas. Cheers!

With around 48,000 pubs in the UK, the great British pub remains one of our most treasured institutions.  The costs associated with running a successful pub can be onerous and so it makes sense to ensure you are making as many savings as you can to keep your pub profitable.

Switching your gas, energy or water supplier to your public house could be one of the best moves you ever make. We know from experience that pubs who ask Utility Bidder to find them cheaper utility providers can save hundreds if not thousands of pounds a year.

Some ways you can save money in your pub

There is nothing worse than going to a pub and being cold.  Creating a lovely, cosy atmosphere inside your pub is one of the reasons why people come to the pub – but keeping your customers warm can be expensive for you.   Our friends at the Carbon Trust have numerous simple ideas to help you keep your pub’s energy costs down.

Heating
Ideally, have different thermostats for different areas of the pub but keep them away from very cold or very hot areas such as a back door or kitchen.  You don’t need the function room to be warm all the time. 20°C to 22°C is the ideal temperature for your pub – make sure your thermostat does not go above 22°C – as you will be losing money. And remember if your pub is packed with customers you won’t need as much heating

Lighting
Around a quarter of your pub’s energy costs can be attributed to lighting. Of course, effective lighting is necessary for your pub’s ambiance and the safety of your staff and customers but installing LED lighting and/or automatic lighting controls will really make a difference to your pub’s electricity bill.

The cellar
How well insulated is your cellar?  Doors and hatches should be insulated and you should always ensure they are closed immediately after use.  Similarly, heating pipes and fittings should also be insulated.

Around 10% of energy used in the pub will be for keeping beverages cools and about half of this goes into cellar cooling.  Simply changing the layout could save your money – heat-producing equipment like line coolers and ice makers could go outside the cellar provided they are kept in a well-ventilated space. The recommended cellar temperature is around 11°C-13°C and so regularly check as even overcooling by as little as 1°C can raise cellar energy costs by up to 10%.
