Commercial Energy Audits in (VT) Vermont
Uncover where your business or commercial building is wasting electricity or losing heat and the steps that can be taken to improve energy efficiency.
If your insulation is determined to be lacking or deteriorating spray foam or cellulose insulation can be used to improve the R-value of your business or commercial building. Having knowledge and experience with both spray foam and cellulose insulation our insulation team will work to improve your building’s barrier to the outdoors with the correct insulation options.
Commercial Air Sealing
Air sealing is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your commercial building’s energy efficiency. Air sealing is utilized to stop air leaks from entering and leaving your business. Both cold and hot air can easily escape from features in your building’s heating envelope such as recessed lighting, attic hatches, plumbing vents and more. Along with air escaping your building, air can easily enter through common features in every building such as dryer vents, oven vents, outdoor faucets, crawl spaces and more.
Commercial Heating Systems
Working to improve heating and cooling systems is one of the most effective ways to ensure solid monetary returns on any improvements made to your business’s energy efficiency. Based on the initial energy audit we will recommend upgrades to your existing heating systems or new heating systems that will drastically improve your building’s energy efficiency and save you money on both heating and cooling in the future. Heat pumps can be installed to efficiently move outdoor air inside while reducing energy consumption costs associated with running traditional heating and cooling systems such as boilers and air conditioners.
Skylights and other daylighting systems can provide the interior of offices, retail shops, restaurants, schools and more with an abundance of natural light. Thus, eliminating the need to have lights consume electricity for hours on end. Once installed skylights can provide up to thirteen times more light than traditional light bulbs and two times more light than traditional lamps.
Natural light has also been proven to improve the health and productivity of workers in business and commercial settings.
Impacts of Natural Light on Worker Behavior:
- Improves employee morale
- Improves quality of work and or product condition
- Increases productivity
- Reduces absenteeism
- Reduces errors
Energy Efficient Windows & Doors
Upgrading your commercial building’s windows and doors can help to eliminate heat loss through building materials which provide less efficient insulation. Energy efficient windows and doors can also work to help reduce the need for traditional lighting systems by allowing more natural light into an interior space.
