Commercial Energy Audits
Looking to reduce your business energy costs and become more energy efficient? You should consider a no obligation commercial energy audit.
A commercial energy audit, is a comprehensive review of your business’s energy use to identify potential improvements that can reduce your energy consumption and costs. Through an energy audit, you can learn how to manage your energy use and improve the efficiency of your operations.
The objective from a commercial energy audit of your facility, is to identify opportunities to reduce energy use, lower carbon emissions and save money.
Smart Future Tech can provide custom energy audits to suit your building
The audit is carried out by a qualified energy auditor and can provide an analysis of the building’s energy use, sources, systems and equipment. They can optionally also look at how the building is insulated, how lighting and other electrical devices are used, and how other energy sources, such as gas, are managed.
The report will include a list of recommendations on how to improve the building’s energy performance - which may suggest equipment upgrades, retrofits or replacement, allowing businesses to make decisions on what changes need to be made and budgeting should expensive changes be needed.
Why invest in a Commercial Energy Audit?
Energy audits are essential for any business that wants to understand areas where energy is being used inefficiently, which could lead to significant cost savings. Additionally, an energy audit can help a business determine how to best invest in the latest energy-efficiency technologies, energy-efficient HVACR equipment, or energy monitoring systems.
Energy savings can be up to 20%. Business energy audits provide data that can be used to understand current energy usage and track changes over time.
In addition to reducing costs and increasing efficiency, businesses can also benefit from improved staff satisfaction. Energy audits allow businesses to demonstrate their commitment to ESG goals and environmental responsibility. Businesses can also use the findings of an energy audit to develop strategies for reducing their carbon footprint and improving their environmental performance.
What happens during an Energy Audit?
Commercial energy audits are undertaken by our qualified and experienced energy surveyors. The audit usually begins with a desk based analysis of your energy bills and load profile.
We then visit your building and start with an initial walk-through survey, during which the auditor will take note of any inefficient lighting, HVAC systems, and insulation. They will also assess the building’s windows, doors, and other openings that can let air in or out to determine if the building is losing energy.
Once the walkthrough is complete our auditor may suggest additional testing such as thermal imaging, air tightness testing, or duct leakage tests to get a more accurate understanding of the building’s energy use. After all of the data is collected, it is analysed to determine which areas of the building are using the most energy, and what changes can be made to improve efficiency. We will then produce a report that outlines the findings and suggests ways to reduce energy consumption.
Commercial Energy Audit
A commercial energy audit is a detailed assessment of the energy performance of a commercial building or facility. It involves an in-depth analysis of energy consumption and potential energy-saving opportunities.
An energy audit goes beyond the surface, delving into the intricacies of your commercial building or facility to reveal hidden opportunities for improvement. From analysing energy data and conducting comprehensive assessments to providing tailored recommendations.
- Outline of steps required to generate specific actions that can be implemented (ESOS: Action Plan).
- Detailed understanding of energy consumption and use and by what equipment
- Identification of easily implemented low cost energy saving opportunities
- Determination and analysis, including comprehensive savings calculation and preliminary investment costs, for capital equipment cost measures
- Compilation of data for energy review and monitoring purposes,
- Operational profile and detailed energy balance.
