This White Paper talks about where to look for energy losses in commercial buildings and how to minimize or eliminate those losses. Courtesy: FlukeA considerable amount of energy loss is actually temperature related. Hot or cold air leaks from a building are an obvious issue. It took energy to heat or cool that air, and when it dissipates due to a leak, you’ve wasted that energy. But many other systems and pieces of equipment also manifest their wasted effort/energy in terms of heat.

Small, consistent changes can make a big difference in the profitability of any facility. Find problems fast, fix them, and win by realizing the cost savings.
