According to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the commercial building sector wastes an astonishing 30% of the average energy they consume. It is, therefore, no surprise that the rising energy prices and concerns about global warming are pushing commercial building operators to reduce energy bills and their business’s impact on the environment.
Commercial building’s energy consumption is spread across different systems crucial to keep the establishment conducive for its occupants, such as ventilation, heating, and lighting. When all these systems are not optimized for energy efficiency, building owners will not only incur higher energy cost but will also compromise the quality of life of their tenants.
Fortunately, making commercial building more energy efficient can be achieved by investing in new technologies and hiring the service of professional engineers that have specialties in “green building” and energy-efficiency retrofitting.
