There is a reason why many commercial building owners invest in annual energy audits. Overall, they save far more than what the audit costs. There are several ways in which commercial energy audits save companies money. Let’s dive in and cover a few of the main ones:
- Reduced utility costs- When energy audits find an area in which energy efficiency could be improved, you will see lower utility costs once the upgrade or repair is made.
- Reduced HVAC repairs- When the HVAC system doesn’t have to work as hard because an energy audit helped you find ways to improve efficiency, it will need repairs less often.
- Extend HVAC system’s life- The less wear and tear on your HVAC system, the longer it will last, so taking care of any energy efficiency issues can reduce capital expenditure costs down the road.
- Labor expenses- Keeping your building comfortable by resolving energy loss issues that were found during an energy audit results in a happier staff. Reducing employee turnover saves companies money spent on training, for example. Your company is also more likely to attract quality team members who are more productive, thereby increasing profits.
