Energy Savings & Audits
Have you recently thought about how much it costs to keep the lights on for your business? Overhead costs can creep up over time, and the energy consumption of your commercial property might be costing you more than you realize. If you are interested in saving money on your business’s energy costs, an energy savings audit from Nipper Electric in Chesapeake could help you realize the savings you want to see.
An energy savings audit is a relatively straightforward service: the Nipper Electric team will inspect your current power system and determine if there are any electrical code violations, outdated parts, or other vulnerabilities. We will also check to ensure your system is configured as efficiently as possible and that the parts of your business that require the most energy have safe and consistent access to power.
How Does an Electrical Audit Work?
If you are interested in auditing your current power system with the help of Nipper Electric, you should have an idea of what the process entails. First, our team will look at your energy bill records for the past several months or years to determine if any significant events align with increases in your energy consumption. This helps us narrow down any specific variables that might be causing excessive power consumption.
Next, the Nipper Electric team in Chesapeake will inspect the electrical environment in your commercial building. This includes taking stock of all the electrical equipment, devices, and appliances in use throughout the structure. This will help us compare your energy demand to your actual consumption rate. Finally, our team will perform a series of diagnostic checks on the major appliances and electrical systems you use every day, such as the heating, cooling, and ventilation systems.
The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) enforces three levels of energy audit for American businesses. If you are interested in improving your commercial property’s energy efficiency and reducing your utility bills, our team can determine which of these three levels of audit is the correct intensity for your needs.
