Your Building’s Energy Bill Increases 5 Percent Per Year. What Can You Do About It?
The Energy Systems Laboratory of the Texas A&M University conducts retro-commissioning on buildings worldwide. It found that energy savings decline about 3% to 5% per year, with a wide spread on actual efficiency losses. Assuming a 10% per year loss in energy efficiency, your high performing, i.e., 50% better than ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1 baseline, building will be at minimum level within six years. This presentation will highlight reasons why building performance deteriorates over time. To counter the degradation requires continuing maintenance and services of testing, adjusting and balancing (TAB) professionals. This presentation will highlight what TAB is all about, why periodic TAB is essential to maintaining peak performance and the impact TAB has on your operating budget.
1. Gain insight why buildings energy performance degrades over time
2. Learn the necessary steps to maintain buildings at peak performance
3. Gain knowledge of testing, adjusting and balancing, its purpose and how it is conducted
4. Participants will find out how testing, adjusting and balancing impacts their building operating budget
