You might have noticed that there are companies out there that offer energy-efficient retrofits for businesses, but wondered what is involved in these services and why your building might need them. It might surprise you that although the older your building is, the more likely it isn’t energy-efficient, even newer buildings can also benefit by an energy audit and assessment to find areas where improvement is possible.
Energy-efficient retrofits can encompass any number of upgrades, such as replacing an old boiler or retrofitting it to be more efficient, putting in a new chiller, or installing a building automation system. An energy audit will provide an analysis of the condition of your building’s equipment, an energy survey analysis, and a recommendation about capital-intensive modifications that can provide you with an excellent return on your investment.
The reason to consider energy-efficient retrofits is because you could be able to use utility company or government incentive opportunities to reduce your capital expenditure while increasing your energy savings. Even if you were not to qualify for some reason, making a one-time expense that reduces utility costs for many years into the future is beneficial for improving your profit margin.
