Conduct an energy audit to find ways to significantly reduce utility bills. Many local utilities provide free energy audits for commercial buildings. It takes a quick call to arrange a convenient time for an audit. Audit reports commonly provide constructive, money saving suggestions to reduce energy use.
An energy auditor will ask questions about the gas heat and electric systems. He/she will go into every room of the building and take notes regarding the size of the vents, types and numbers of ceiling lights, and location of wall switches. The duct work and insulation in the attic are also examined.
Every situation is different, however there are trained professionals at local utility companies that can help determine where you can reduce your energy consumption and save money.
