The Energy Audit and ReportThere are no simple formulas to calculate the optimal energy consumption of your premises. Every building is unique. Energy consumption depends on its design, materials, construction, and how well it is sealed. The effects of wind and sun, maintenance, and the habits of its occupants concerning hot water, heating and ventilation are also crucial. Finally, the consequences of the siting of the property have to be considered.
We have produced a unique, innovative template that considers all these elements. It calculates what your building should use if the heating installations are running perfectly, water consumption is optimised, your insulation adequate, and, where it is cost-effective to do so, a high-efficiency boiler installed.
We compare your real consumption with the ideal levels predicted by the template, and recommend action based on the shortfall. Our proposals for optimisation provide recommendations accordingly.
Our track record over 40 years demonstrates that this method provides the least costly yet most effective solution - usually at a fraction of the price of the more expensive and extensive remedies commonly prescribed. Payback is never more than 2 to 3 years.
Buildings of all types can benefit from our energy audit, even the latest, most energy-efficient projects. In that case, even should it prove that no improvements are currently necessary, it serves as an invaluable tool to monitor and benchmark performance and to ensure you are keeping abreast of the latest developments in the industry.
We will be happy to further explain the methodology, its application to your particular requirements, and how that can lead to rapid, cost-effective, long-term reductions in your energy costs. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your enquiry.
