ENERGY AUDIT &
SOLAR & GREEN
Every business needs to control its energy spend. It’s one of the complex and key areas of expenditure that every organization has to face. Energy-saving measures can range from building and equipment upgrades to awareness programs that can help to change staff behavior.
To identify where you could make substantial savings, the best place to start is with a professional energy audit. Our qualified auditor will look closely at every aspect of your energy consumption and suggest specific solutions to reduce your energy expenditure and carbon emissions. If you’re ready to unlock ongoing savings, it’s time to find out more about what an energy audit can do for your business.
During the course of your energy audits, we develop a full understanding of the specific challenges faced by your business. Through analysis of building construction, energy consumption, and business operations we make recommendations that are exactly tailored for each building and business unit.
The result is a detailed and holistic view of energy conservation measures, complete with estimated costs, potential savings, and projected payback times. We apply data analytics to verify projected savings, helping to build your commercial case for change.
A professional energy audit pays for itself, offering you the opportunity to discover the most effective ways to cut operating costs through energy-efficient improvements. The obvious reason most businesses choose to have a commercial energy audit that has the potential to cut your utility bills down by as much as 50% according to ENERGY STAR.
Comprehensive energy audits inspect and analyze everything from building’s exterior, heating, and air-conditioning equipment, to internal structure. A commercial energy auditor will look at how these systems interact with one another, locating inefficiencies, unwanted heat transmission, and air leakage, before recommending and providing cost-effective solutions to maximize functionality while minimizing immediate expenses. The average commercial building wastes thirty percent of its energy dollars, meaning an investment in efficiency can return, on average, $1.50 for every dollar invested.
Increase Building Value
Using recommendations of an auditor to make your property more energy-efficient could help to increase its overall worth. Energy audit increases the appraised value in your building and improves your green credentials while giving a competitive differentiation in the market.
Things like solar panels, high-efficiency LED lighting, and weatherization procedures are all things that contribute to a higher property value, so it is in your interest to go as green as your budget will allow. Green infrastructures are more attractive to tenants, and so they will be happy to pay higher occupancy rates.
Identify Problems & Extend Equipment Lifespan
Energy audits allow you to discover system malfunctions and immediately fix them. You can regulate maintenance processes to prevent further breakdowns and downtimes, ultimately prolonging the lifespan of the facility’s equipment.
For example, the auditor could find small leaks in a compressed air system. These leaks would cost a significant amount of money if you didn’t know about them until a major problem presented itself later down the line.
A commercial energy audit can also save lives. By identifying and rectifying potentially dangerous problems, particularly in older buildings, auditors can detect possible health and safety risks such as back-drafting combustion equipment, radon leaks, carbon monoxide poisoning, and more.
Energy efficiency and safety go hand in hand. With the commercial energy audit, you will be able to address these kinds of issues promptly to help ensure the health and safety of your staff members.
