Prior to improving your building’s equipment and assessing how your operations consume energy, improve your building’s envelope integrity!
If you’re upgrading or replacing inefficient equipment, installing high-efficiency lighting, variable speed drive chillers and geothermal heat pumps, you’re on the conservation path. All these procedures are proven to save energy, but if you haven’t addressed your vapor barrier, you haven’t identified the biggest opportunity to eliminate waste and increase efficiency.
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
The first step to reducing your carbon footprint is quantifying your carbon footprint. Online tools enable users to enter information like electricity, gas, and diesel usage. This consolidated data provides an accurate measurement of your organization’s total carbon footprint.
Then and only then can you gauge the effectiveness of your energy saving measures.
