What is an energy audit?

An energy audit is a detailed assessment of your energy usage and consumption. It is a systematic analysis carried out in buildings, such as the home or workplace, to generate a precise measurement of its energy output.

Energy audits often use a metering device to provide quantifiable reports. They are highly sophisticated to measure the total energy consumption of each individual appliance in the building or room.

In addition to offering calculative reports, energy audits also deliver a qualitative analysis of your appliances. They can identify the efficiency of your appliances and detect if there are any energy losses.

In order to gain the most benefit possible from your report, it is important to identify your energy objectives prior to having an energy audit. However, the level of detail you gain from an energy audit report may vary depending on the type of audit you book and who performs the analysis. For this reason, it is vital that an experienced professional carries out the audit to ensure you receive a detailed and actionable report you can fully understand, and gain the energy saving outcome you desire.

 

When do people require energy audits?

  • Conserve energy
  • Reduce the amount of energy input into the system
