Choose the right copier for your use
Get the paper size (A4, rarely A3), the color or black & white, one sided or double sided printing and the necessary printing speed (below 50 pages per minute) according you your use in an office. The more features you need the higher the energy use in service.
Copy in batches
Every time you copy the machine has to heat up and start. Try to make only few printing sessions with all the necessary copies ready. The rest of the time shut it off.
Switch off photocopiers when not in use
Photocopiers should automatically switch into stand-by mode when turned off (before they are unplugged). But they still consume electricity. However, switching photocopiers on/off too often makes them to wear out faster.
Turn off photocopiers by pressing power off button or activate their automatic energy-saving function.
