If you own a business, you’ve probably spent plenty of time thinking about efficiency. You know that efficient spending, efficient workflow, and efficient management are all essential to success. What you may not know is that efficient heating, cooling, and ventilation can have a major impact as well. No matter the size or industry, every business can benefit from scheduled energy efficiency assessments.
What Is an Energy Efficiency Assessment?
Broadly speaking, there are two primary areas of focus when it comes to boosting your HVAC system’s efficiency. The first is understanding how you currently use energy and identifying opportunities for you to reduce your consumption. The second is identifying energy waste within the system itself and determining the best ways to eliminate it.
Also called an energy audit, a commercial energy assessment accomplishes these goals with a comprehensive analysis of your energy system. This typically includes analyzing your energy consumption and costs, inspecting your building and HVAC system, and performing several diagnostic tests. The end goal is to produce a concrete plan you can use to reduce your energy consumption and maximize efficiency.
Why Is It Important?
The typical commercial HVAC system accounts for about 40 percent of the energy a building uses each month. Needless to say, that represents a major share of the operating expenses for your business. As with any other aspect of your business, reducing your HVAC waste and enhancing efficiency directly improves your bottom line.
In addition to the financial considerations, an energy audit benefits your business in other ways as well. An assessment may identify potential issues with your system before they necessitate costly repairs. It can also ensure you have the right HVAC equipment for the job. Finally, a comprehensive assessment generates data that can be used to help guide other commercial HVAC services.
Unnecessarily wasting energy on heating and cooling is bad business. Scheduling a professional energy efficiency assessment is one of the best ways to maximize your bottom line.
