Energy Audits

​The energy auditing process can be separated into two main steps:​

​​Results from energy audits provide insight for building owners and also identify the most economical and energy-saving opportunities.  Audits alone do not decrease energy usage; energy-saving strategies must actually be applied in order to see results. However, the implementation of these cost-effective opportunities can result in a payback period typically ranging from six months to four years, depending on the savings approaches utilized.

Any existing building is a candidate for an energy audit, but especially those that consume excessive energy, are considering building upgrades, or have never before been audited.

  • Walk-Through Analysis:  Energy Auditor Inspection and Interview   The auditor will perform multiple tests throughout the building, take measurements, interview building owners and occupants, and locate energy-saving opportunities.  In total, this process usually takes between two to four hours to complete.
  • Energy Survey and Analysis:  Report and Implementation   Following the initial appointment, the auditor will provide a full description of problematic energy areas and     then offer recommendations for energy systems partially based off of occupant tendencies.
