Finding a professional to conduct an energy audit July 29th, 2014

In these days of uncertainty, it is important to keep operating expenses to a minimum. One difference between companies that weather these difficult times and those which do not survive, will be that the survivors will have reduced their unnecessary expenditures before it is too late.

Unnecessary costs include costs for energy you don’t need to use. ÊIn the past many companies have just considered utilities as “a cost of doing business.” By running an inefficient building, you are overpaying your utility for energy. It just doesn’t make any sense.

A good building energy audit will point the way to reduce your energy costs by 10% to 40%. For large organizations, this can be substantial, and could mean the difference between staying afloat and going under. A professional technician, often called an Certified Energy Auditor (CEA), can give your office or building an inspection.

To find a CEA please click on following link, http://www.aeecenter.org/custom/cpdirectory/index.cfm . Next, enter the State and Country. Then where it says “Certification Type”, click on CEA – Certified Energy Auditor and hit the “Search” button. This will provide you with information about the CEA’s in your area.
