Energy Audits: Optimize the performance of your building
April 6, 2023
As utility costs rise, building managers must take advantage of cost-saving opportunities for tenants.
An energy audit can provide a bigger picture for identifying and understanding major energy-saving opportunities. It can also provide a quantifiable look at a building compared to its peers, which can be used to set realistic energy reduction targets and help improve the performance of energy-consuming systems.
Technology, materials, and energy costs are changing rapidly; a quality energy audit performed more than five years ago will be outdated for most facilities. Buildings that follow the best practice of keeping an up-to-date energy audit prove to be leaders in energy reduction and savings.
- Review of historical energy bills to develop an energy snapshot for comparison with other buildings
- Assessment of retrofit savings potential
- A detailed inventory of energy-consuming aspects and associated operating details
- Discussions regarding past, current, and potential future energy retrofits
- Lighting systems
- Building envelope
- Water-consuming equipment
- HVAC equipment
- Control systems
- Common element equipment
An inexperienced auditor may overestimate or underestimate savings potential, miss obvious savings opportunities, and neglect to assess entire categories of a building’s energy reduction potential.
