Provide Efficient, Comfortable and Productive Places
We believe in helping commercial and industrial businesses and organisations to provide efficient, comfortable and productive places to work or learn.
SaveMoneyCutCarbon offers building and lighting controls installations that not only help your business and organisation to operate more efficiently but also save money on energy bills, improve customer/employee satisfaction and reduce carbon emissions.
Reducing Your Carbon Footprint to Save
A structured approach to reducing your carbon footprint through lower energy use by managing heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) and lighting – a large cost to your business/organisation – will save you a surprising amount on your utility bill.
Taking action on climate change delivers energy cost reductions, enhanced reputation, satisfied and motivated employees and stakeholders, the ability to proactively manage regulatory compliance, and competitive leadership through planning new business innovations.
HVAC (heating, ventilation & air conditioning) is often the biggest consumer of energy in any building, especially in 24/7 operations like hotels, hospitals or residential home, using anything between 60-80% of the total energy.
It’s an increasingly tough challenge, with energy prices doubling over the past decade and set to go on rising for a long time to come.
Building owners, engineers and facility managers don’t want to waste time and money manually adjusting HVAC systems.
The solution is to have intelligent sensors both in the building and in the units themselves that can comprehensively monitor external sources and interior functionality so the system can maintain its efficiency. Intelligent systems “learn” where and how much heat or air to bring to each section of the building.
- Intelligent HVAC control systems can reduce HVAC energy costs by 30-35% particularly in a busy hotel that has to heat or cool every room continuously.
- Intelligent control systems will keep individual hotel rooms at an optimum ambient temperature with guest occupancy patterns constantly changing.
- Beyond hotels, intelligent HVAC control systems are ideal for school and university classrooms, student accommodation, meeting rooms, offices, hospitals and retail outlets.
Potential for savings when guests are present in room
Take a look at the HVAC savings with the use of an intelligent HVAC control system.
200-bedroom hotel example – consider the typical savings that you could be instantly making.
Generally, hotels have costs associated with seven months of heating and two months of cooling in any given year based on the typical UK climate. We estimate that guests are not in their rooms for two hours in a 24-hour stay and this is when the eco mode operates – typically the saving would be £38,000 per year.
Advanced Financial Modelling
We have also developed advanced financial modelling tools and comprehensive savings calculators to identify and verify your hotel’s exact potential savings and reduced carbon footprint.

Smart Lighting Control Systems
We offer a range of smart lighting control systems from trusted brands all aimed at maximising energy savings for any room, at any budget. Smart Lighting Control Systems typically consist of:
- Wireless sensors
- Remote controls
Features of Smart Lighting
Occupancy/vacancy sensing – detects when someone enters the room and turns on the lights, they will stay on while the room is occupied and will turn off when they vacate the space.
Daylight dimming – detects when enough daylight is available, the artificial light dims down according to how much light is available.
Personal dimming controls – gives occupants the ability to adjust the light level.
Scheduling – provides pre-programmed changes in light levels based on the time of day.
Smart Lighting Controls is the ideal solution for new construction or retrofit in the widest range of environments:
- Hotels & restaurants
- Hospitals and care homes
- Corridors and common areas
- Stores and cupboards
- Specific area of factories and warehousing
“They were able to come in after the school activities had finished in the afternoon. The Team were very amenable to working around any occupational restrictions we had with clubs and so on.They were a cheerful bunch and left the school tidy everyday with the furniture returned to its usual positions.There were a few changes to the fittings etc. that were noted during the fitting from the original survey and these were put in place without any problems."
"Overall, the standard of work from SaveMoneyCutCarbon was impressive. After SaveMoneyCutCarbon secured the interest-free loan, they moved very quickly to install the LED lighting, ensuring that the work was completed during the summer holidays, which was excellent. The early impressions of the new lighting are very positive, particularly in the library area and staff room. I’m sure we will see more benefits as the winter draws in.”
"There was a strong business case for choosing LED lighting and we’re looking forward to reduced costs over many years.The lighting is much improved, a lot brighter and clearly better quality, which I’m sure we’ll notice even more as winter draws in.”
"Lighting controls in particular are a great asset as it is difficult to rapidly change people’s attitudes to switching off lighting."
