An Energy Efficiency Audit is a detailed survey and analysis of a building to identify all opportunities to reduce energy and water use. The end result is a report that lists of savings and improvement opportunities that includes a detailed financial analysis and description for each recommendation.
An energy audit is the first and most a critical step towards understanding how energy is being used, how it is being wasted, and how you can take control of future price increases. Vert Energy Group engineers conduct their audits in accordance with the high standards developed by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
This includes a more detailed building survey and energy analysis. A breakdown of the energy use within the building is provided. A Level II energy analysis will identify and provide the savings and cost analysis of all practical measures that meet the owner’s constraints and economic criteria, along with a discussion of any changes to operation and maintenance procedures. It may also provide a listing of potential capital-intensive improvements that require more thorough data collection and engineering analysis, and a judgment of potential costs and savings.
This level of analysis will be adequate for most buildings and measures.
