Increasing energy usage and costs are driving Texans to look for a comprehensive energy solution. Most of the houses and businesses are victims of increased energy costs. An energy audit helps you find out where and how energy is wasted and suggests effective solutions to reduce energy usage. There are three types of energy audits – preliminary, general and detailed energy audits. You can determine what type of energy audit to be performed at your home and place of business.
Three types of Energy Audits
Preliminary Energy Audit
Preliminary energy audit or walk through analysis is a simple energy auditing process that takes only a short amount of time to accomplish. A home energy survey is a part of a preliminary energy audit which is used to assess the energy efficiency of houses. Preliminary energy audits mainly involve an analysis of energy bills and a brief survey of buildings and equipment. It also provides a list of potential low-cost measures to improve your energy efficiency.
General Energy Audit
General energy audits or standard energy audits collect more detailed information regarding energy usage and energy conservation measures. Utility bills for a period of 12 to 36 months will be collected to perform a deep analysis of energy usage profiles. General energy audits conduct diagnostic testing of building envelopes and systems to find out where the more energy consuming areas. Individual metering of energy consuming equipment and detailed interviews with operational personals provide detailed information on major energy consumption. General energy audits provide a detailed report of suitable cost saving and energy conservation measures.
Detailed Energy Audit
Detailed energy audits or comprehensive audits perform an extensive level of an energy audit to identify energy efficiency measures and reduce energy costs without affecting productivity. It includes sub-metering and evaluation of energy consuming equipment to detect systems which are operating inefficiently. Detailed energy audits require a minimum of three weeks to complete from the date of commencement.
