The Energy Audit: What Is It and Why Is It Worth It?
While energy audits have been available for many years with more and more institutions choosing to take advantage of their benefits, many individuals are still unaware how beneficial they can be or that they even exist in the first place!
Energy audits often represent the first step towards reducing your carbon footprint and energy consumption by indicating potential trouble areas in your home or facility. Naturally, these energy savings reflect themselves in a reduced cost in your energy bill.
But what exactly is an energy audit, and how can it help you evaluate your facility's environmental impact?
The Energy Audit: What Is It?
In simple terms, an energy audit is conducted to determine a facility's energy efficiency, identifying its electrical consumption, trouble areas, and highlighting potential solutions that can improve overall efficiency. With the information compiled during an energy audit, you can recognize and correct any energy usage issues while cutting electrical costs and saving unnecessary energy consumption. Before conducting any energy solution projects, it is strongly recommended that you begin with an energy audit.
Who Conducts The Energy Audit?
It is advised that you seek a registered energy auditor or advisor to conduct your business' energy audit, although it is possible to complete a rudimentary energy audit of your home or residence.
