If you are like most business owners in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, you keep a close eye on your budget and are always happy to discover a new way to save a few dollars or more on your operating expenses. Most businesses find that their energy bill is one of the most significant expenses they face each month. So finding ways to economize and reduce their consumption is always welcome. However, with a much more complex electrical system and needs than the typical household, it is best to turn to the professionals at Lumberjack Electric to assist you in this endeavor with an energy audit.
What Is An Energy Audit?
An energy audit is a detailed evaluation of all of the energy used throughout your business. It covers everything inside the property as well as outdoors. During the process, special attention is given to locating ways to use energy more efficiently. Once the evaluation process is complete, a plan is developed to guide you in making cost-effective choices and changes in the methods used throughout the business to save energy and reduce your energy expenses.
More About The Benefits Of An Energy Audit
Saving money is essential to any business. When you hire a professional to perform an energy audit, you invest in long-term savings as the increased energy efficiency lowers your monthly energy bills for years to come. On average, commercial properties waste around 30% of the money spent on energy bills. Recovering that amount translates to about $1.50 for every $1 invested.
Another significant benefit of an energy audit is increased safety and the elimination of potential health threats. In many cases, audits reveal issues in older buildings that have gone unnoticed for years. From carbon monoxide leaks and improperly vented equipment to electrical hazards, these items will be included in the audit report so that they can be corrected to ensure the health and safety of everyone on the property.
Increased comfort in your commercial building and lower energy bills might sound too good to be true. But it can happen when you hire the experts at Lumberjack Electric to complete an energy audit on your property. Simple tasks like increasing insulation, repairing damaged door and window seals, and applying UV reflective coatings can keep your heating and cooling costs down while increasing the comfort level inside the building.
When looking for long-term benefits, think about the environmental impact you can make by lowering your business's carbon footprint. Using less fossil fuel reduces pollution and benefits the entire planet. And by sticking to the resolution plan, you can continue to help the environment each month by operating your business more responsibly and energy-efficiently.
