What is a Commercial Energy Audit?
A commercial building energy audit is a study of your building’s energy using specialized equipment. Building energy audits often also look at water consumption (even though that is not technically considered energy). An energy auditor comes out to your building and interviews facility managers, inspects lighting, air conditioning, heating and ventilation equipment (HVAC), controls, air compressors, water consuming equipment, and anything else that is using energy.
The auditor will develop a list of energy recommendations that will reduce energy usage and costs in your building. Depending upon the level of building energy audit, the auditor will then quantify how much savings potential there is for each of these measures, and the costs associated with implementing them. Some measures will take decades to pay for themselves, while others will start paying for themselves within months.

• Lighting systems
• HVAC Systems and Controls
• Renewable Energy Applications
• Water Usage
• Structural Building Integrity
• Electric Motors and Drives
• Process Systems
• Steam Systems
• Compressed Air Systems
• Heat Recovery

What are common recommendations?
Recommendations vary on a case-by-case basis. What is cost-effective and beneficial in one building, may serve no purpose in another. It depends on the use of the structure and what major underlying issues you already have. Some recommendations that our report often include are:
• Demand controlled HVAC systems
• Lighting controls
• Water Efficiency Strategy
• Sun controls and shading
• Proper Ventilation
• Low Emitting Materials
• Solar PV systems
