HVAC Maintenance

Every company wants to reduce annual costs, and one of the main factors that continue to fluctuate, even for large corporations, are their energy costs per year. The costs for employee salaries and manufacturing can remain the same but the costs to power equipment, machines, lights, gas and air conditioning can fluctuate out of control.

This is why it may be a good idea to contact an energy consulting company to take a closer look at things. While it may seem like an absurd idea to hire a different firm, there are several reasons why this should be considered and here is a quick look at how these firms operate to keep your company’s energy costs down.

Initial Company Energy Assessment

The first step is to make an assessment of the company’s costs. This may seem like a no-brainer but a lot of companies immediately try to jump to the conclusion that hiring a firm would lead to cost reduction but that is not how it works. First, a firm needs to assess where the company is spending its money on when it comes to energy utilization.

This means that everything is going to be assessed, from what kind of light bulbs are used to the kind of air conditioning installed. The company will be assessed on whether it is dependent on the electric grid, feeding off fossil fuel and coal or if it is using renewable energy like solar or wind energy.

Drafting a Plan

The consulting firm will then draft an energy management plan for the company. One of the main goals of this plan is to ensure that energy costs will become stable and this is often achieved by switching to renewable energy. It has been proven that switching to solar, wind or any other renewable energy source can save a company a lot of money in the long run, particularly if the company can become independent from the grid.

This plan will also showcase the projected cost reduction that the company will experience over the upcoming months and years. Very often cost reduction does not happen overnight and these plans are drafted with five or ten years in the pocket.

Implementing the Plan

Implementation can start with as simple as switching to LED lights, using newer HVAC systems, adding sensors to the rooms, opening up walls, and so on. Some plans take years to implement, as they require the company to slowly drift away from the electric grid to become more and more independent and relying solely on renewable energy sources. But of course, you can always take small steps.

In energy consultant will be able to guide the company with each new change, providing assistance and advice to ensure that you will be able to save money in the long run. The key is to find an energy consultant who understands your business’ needs, is committed to help you save money, and can work within your budget.
