HVAC HEATING, AIR CONDITIONING & VENTILATION AUDITS
INCREASE CASH FLOW – INCREASE RETURNS – REDUCE Co2 EMISSIONS
The best decision you can make is choosing who you have as your partner for all your energy efficiency advice, heating, ventilation, air conditioning & mechanical services. Did you know that up to 70% of energy produced within Australia is used for heating & cooling commercial buildings?
Through review of your building’s energy consumption, systems & operation, your building can be initially audited identifying potential energy reductions. Achieving reduced energy consumption in your building plant & equipment will result in increased cash flow, increased returns, & reduced carbon emissions.
In this tough economic climate, choosing CFM Air conditioning is the best decision you can make. CFM Air conditioning can provide full building energy audits on your commercial building. Building energy audits are an essential tool in conserving energy in your building, lowering costs & reducing your carbon footprint. We can provide an initial assessment for as low as $880.00 to ascertain if it is beneficial to proceed to the next step of a full audit, which is P.O.A on individual buildings.
HEATING, VENTILATION AND COOLING (HVAC)
HVAC ccounts for the largest percentage of consumed energy in commercial buildings. Reducing the running costs of this equipment is paramount in today’s economy with continually rising electricity prices. A large percentage of commercial buildings have enormous potential reductions in their mechanical plant operating costs.
MONITORING & VERIFICATION
Monitoring and Verification of your energy usage is vital in Identifying exactly where energy is being consumed. Compare actual bill charges vs. recorded energy usage, verifying energy bills are accurate. Monitor energy usage, analyse trends, identify areas of waste. Establish key performance targets for an energy management solution.
Adjust for the Seasons
Each season, adjust your heating and cooling temperatures. We recommend that your thermostat is set to between 18° and 21° in the winter and 24° in the summermonths. Statistic: you could be adding more than 7% to you total energy bill for each degree cooler in winter, or warmer in summer.
If you have a ducted system, ensure than un-used areas such as storage areas, hallways and meeting rooms have closed vents. Concentrating your air conditioning system in the areas that you need them will save money!
Where are your thermostats and air conditioning vents located?
Ensure that the thermostat isn’t located in a draughty area, or near frequently used doors (especially entry and exits) which throw-off the thermostat reading and generates more energy use, leading to unnecessary extra costs. Also set the air conditioning system on a suitable timer!
How well is your building insulated?
A well-insulated building can dramatically reduce power consumption and save you money. Ceilings, in particular, are overlooked – check to see if there are any significant air leaks.
A well-insulated building also accounts for blinds, shades and solar reduction tints where possible
Windows & Doors
Automation can be key to saving power and reducing your power bills!
Manual doors are often left open, letting the conditioned air to escape and encouraging the air conditioning system to work harder to re-condition the air. Even a door left slightly ajar will generate more power use.
Take advantage of fresh and cleanair whenever possible. Open doors and windows during comfortable weather during spring, summer and autumn.
