Energy Efficiency (Part 3 of 3) - 10 Apr 2014

Over the past 10 years UPS (uninterruptible power supply) technology has advanced considerably; legacy units older than seven years are typically difficult to support as parts need regular replacement and excess process heat means that air conditioning units have to work harder, incurring increased costs. Newer UPS technology makes UPS units up to 58% more energy efficient and show savings of up to £3,000 a year in energy costs alongside reducing your climate change levy (CCL) payment and air-conditioning bill.

In the final post in our series on every efficiency, we look at the environmental difference that upgrading your UPS can make and give some guidance on when it’s best to upgrade your equipment.
