ASHRAE Energy Audit

American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has developed Standard 211-2018 for conducting Energy Audits for Commercial Buildings. This standard divides the audit efforts into three Levels 1, 2, 3. This standard can be applied to all buildings (Including commercial, Institutional, and Large Multifamily Residential) except single-family houses, Multifamily structures of three stories or fewer above grade, manufactured houses (mobile homes), and manufactured houses (modular).

 

Qualified Energy Auditor for ASHRAE Level 1, 2, 3 is:

Licensed Professional Engineer (P.Eng)

A person who is certified by the U.S. Department of Energy

A person approved as qualified by the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ)

 

Benefits of having this audit includes but not limited to:

Lowering your maintenance costs

Reducing your energy bills

Improving level of comfort and air quality

Helping to secure LEED certification

Lowering your building carbon footprint

Chance of getting possible available incentives

Why This Audit?

  • Identifying Inefficiencies

    ASHRAE energy audits serve as a powerful diagnostic tool to identify and quantify energy inefficiencies within a building or facility.

  • Customized Solutions

    One of the key strengths of ASHRAE energy audits lies in their ability to provide customized recommendations based on the specific characteristics of a building.

  • Financial Savings

    Investing in energy efficiency not only benefits the environment but also translates into tangible financial savings.

ASHRAE energy audits improve total operational effectiveness in addition to energy efficiency. The auditing process increases occupant productivity and comfort by eliminating inefficiencies in lighting, HVAC systems, and other vital components. Energy efficiency improvements are frequently accompanied by improved indoor environmental quality, which results in a cozier and healthier living or working space.

How much saving I can have through the ASHRAE Audit process?

Without having information about your building energy usage and operation somehow, it’s not possible to come with an accurate or acceptable estimation and that’s the reason why Preliminary Energy-Use Analysis is a prerequisite for all the ASHRAE Audits. For instance, if you already conducted an energy audit not more than 10 years earlier and identified measures were implemented then there might not be much improvement. However, for buildings without having any energy-wise improvement then you can assume around 20% potential saving.

ASHRAE Energy Audit can generally be classified into the following three levels of effort, plus there is a Preliminary Energy-Use Analysis (PEA) which is a prerequisite for any audit, and there are targeted audits, which do not have a strictly defined level of effort but may be useful or necessary for some situations.

  • Level 1—Walk-Through Analysis
  • Level 2—Energy Survey Analysis
  • Level 3—Detailed Analysis of Capital-Intensive Modifications

We understand this fact can make building owners reluctant about Energy Audit as they may need to pay more than what they save. So, a Free Consultation is available for you to see if this solution works for you or not. Give us a call to discuss more about your project.
